Why water is not always readily available
- Why water is not always readily available
Contamination, Drought, Broken Lines, Boil Ordinances, Pandemics, sold out water bottles. The list goes on and on!
In major disasters clean water is very difficult to find. What about a flood? You may think you’re good to go. Not true. Flood water is so contaminated and toxic it’s not a sure source for survival.
In an emergency we may think we’ll be fine if we can find water heaters, a stream, a lake or a pool. Also, not a sure source for survival. The last thing you want in an emergency is to get desperately thirsty and give in to drinking a bad source of water.
If every home in the United States had some form of high-capacity emergency water storage it would reduce the chances of panic and uncertainty in troubled times.
Emergencies affect everyone and respect no one. You can live longer without food than water. It is the number one think we need in an emergency. Red Cross and the CID recommend each person have a minimum of one gallon of water per day stored depending on your climate. The CDC suggests that half a gallon is for drinking and the other half is for hygiene.
Three days to a week’s worth is the bare minimum goal. Drink plenty, hydrate your food, be hygienic, be sanitary, flush your toilet, water your garden, hydrate your pet and cook with peace of mind. Don’t be a minimalist when it comes to water! Prepare today with Rockwell Water Systems.
