Default I'm going to add some improvements!

Hello all, RON L here - SERE SURPLUS, Responce to Ca357

yes, thanks again, this set up will be the basis of improvements to the design as shown there! I'll add the Ceremic Filter elements to the Bucket, as well as sand and a Charcoal layer, that will aid in Filtration as well as removal of larger contaminiates and aid in the preservation of the ceremic filter elements! I got the designs out of Foxfire books and when I get it done, will be most glad to add pics and all to show the finished product as wel as the Building of it?

Yes, I have sen how Folks in Kalifornia can't buy the Berky and thats Madness, of course they knowmbetter than you, after all, they are leftists and know everything? I'm sorry that your still there, but you really should consider leaving? For so many reasons? I did, you can to!

Plexi glass is your friend when it comes to water purification. You can make a nice multi stage solar still. Adding multiple stages is always better, single stage stills won't get everything out of contaminated water. Best part is it requires only sunlight & will make a fairly decent water heater is needed.

Guys and Gals, I'm a water Treatment Operator. I can't stress enough the need for regular, unscented Bleach! Get as much as humanly possible!

One or two drops per gallon is what I read. It WILL kill any living organisms, but it won't to anything to remove toxins.

The shelf life on regular household bleach is very short,it gets weaker as it ages. Pool shock is very good for sanitizing water and has a much longer shelf life. I just bought a sawyer water filter to clean water with,have not used it yet to see how well it works,it is supposed to have unlimited usage life with fewer cleanings.

Yup, bleach loses it's potency. I just keep a few jugs and rotate them through the laundry.

Even minor filtration will help bleach do it's job.
