Water Collecting & Storage : Volume 1

Kenny & Tiny shoot from the hip on a current event, the toxic water in Flint, Michigan.

Highlight reel:

-Discussing good ways for storage and purification of water, and covering how relying on a water heater is not the best for longevity. What if you CAN’T drive because of a crisis? Portability could be everything when it comes to survival.

-Keep it fresh. There’s no way to keep water completely pure because of the minerals naturally in both water, and the containers. Use your storage water occasionally to water the flowers or garden, and restock.

Sawyer water purification are great! Life straws are rumored to be world changers. What other tools are out there that we should test and discuss in the future?

-Where does your water come from? What happens if there is a power outage, will your water still “flow”? Some city water flows regardless of power. Those that live on a well tend to need a generator of some kind to keep the flow of water happen in the event of a power outage.

-Are there water restrictions in your state, as far as storage or collection? Find out here!

-Coffee filters and cotton balls are both great filters in a pinch!

  • Flint is not alone. Over 200 water systems in Michigan have higher than allowable lead limits.
    Flint is getting all the press because it’s politically motivated.
    No one “poisoned” Flint’s water. The chose to pull it out of the river instead of Lake Huron so they wouldn’t be at the mercy of another government entity as far as pricing for municipal water (i.e., Detroit or Flint Township).
    But they never tested the water for chlorIDE ions. The river receives Ag. and storm run-off, besides leaching salts out of the bedrock.
    So the salts start eating away at the lead service lines, and BOOYAH! Lead contamination.
