Whether you’re preparing for a wilderness expedition or preparing for a disaster, water is paramount in any survival situation. Water is absolutely necessary to sustain life. When we don’t have access to our regular sources such as municipally supplied water or a personal well, we’ll have to rely on stored or found water for survival.
Water storage is a highly debated topic in the prepper community. While large water storage cisterns are widely available and utilized by many, we prefer small scale water storage in conjunction with a portable water filter, purifier, and/or desalinator system. Portable water purification systems, like those offered by Katadyn, allow you to turn just about any water source into potable water. Unlike large containers of stored water, Katadyn Water Filters and Desalinators are compact making them very portable so you are ensured clean water no matter where you are.
