suggestions on Water storage and purification.
ALTERNATE WATER SOURCES:

gallon per person, per day.)

you may need when away from home.

- Store additional supply of water for your pets.
- Replace your stored water every six months.
- Store your water in a cool, dark, and dry place separated from your other emergency supplies.

fall and burst.

preferable for storing water.

- Toilet tanks (not the bowl) if the water hasn't been treated with chemicals to enhance color,

water be used for drinking because acids build up
in the water which could be harmful to health.

Our Drinking water Systems can be used effectively in an emergency situation to treat
water at the tap, stored water, or water from alternative sources. If the water source is

disinfection solution and contaminants which may be in the water which are impervious to some
disinfection methods, such as Giardia Lamblia, Cryptosporidium, certain chemicals, etc.
You may use our systems installed at your kitchen sink to process stored water or
water from alternate sources by siphoning the water from the source through the filter unit. This
can be done by gravity feed or with a hand pump kit available from our company.
Some customers are purchasing the 400 gallon unit for emergency use. This may even be used
for camping purpose.

minutes. If the water is cloudy, double the amount of chlorine. A slight smell or taste of chlorine
is adequately disinfected. or...
