    Water

    I have some water already stored, I'm just getting more stuff together given the current situation. I live a rural area with fresh streams on my property. What's people's opinion on using the bag filter system for camping for back up water as well? Thanks

    What is a bag water system? Will it handle viruses?

    I have several redundant ways to get potable water: filters, purifiers, boiling, stills, iodine, chlorine.

    Good you have fresh/clear water to start out with.

    Oh, yea. Say hello and introduce yourself as common courtesy for a newbie.

    Nice intro.



    Your system is used by people here. It's nice it has a carbon filter to take care of organics and some metals, but it won't take care of viruses and has limited capacity/life span.

    I prefer the Sawyer mini as a filter, and Sawyer purifier. Both can be cleaned/flushed and both last for thousands of gallons.

    Get yourself some bleach, poolshock, and/or iodine. Unless you can boil after filtration.

    If you have a stream you can plumb to, you might consider building a slow sand filter.

    For goodness sake, this is a Prepper website. Why scare people?
    In a survival situation water is water. Purify it and move on.

    Seems like a good back up idea.

    Would not be practical here, but sunny AZ a solar still would be a great thing to have. You could fabricate a nice one using reclaimed plate glass.

    I have the Sawyer system, basically the same setup.
    Just keep in mind, you're not the only one on that stream. Somebody upstream could damn it up for themselves. Best to have a local stock of water too.
