Boiling Water during a Crisis
Bottled water is a major profiteer in the US, people have been drinking bottled water for years. Bottled water is already purified from the factory and read to be digested. A lot of people have gotten use to having bottled water readily available everywhere and anywhere. Name a store where you can’t find some brand of bottled water. The water comes in different bottle shapes and designs even amounts of water. Spring and purified as well. Now what would we do if we didn’t have bottled water? What would we do if it was an emergency and we couldn’t go buy water like we are all accustomed to? Would we just die and wither away? No we would simply do what people were doing for decades and even still today, if water isn’t as available as it is to certain areas. Boil. That’s right boiling water. My mother use to boil and chill water for us to drink as children instead of using the garden hose like we would have liked too. Boiling water kills most of the harmful germs you can find today in our tap water supplies and in well water. Boling is the process of heating the water up to a certain degree until it starts to bubble and pop. This process is a much healthier choice than drinking water straight from the faucet sink or especially from a well. Untreated water can contain such diseases as dysentery, typhoid, or hepatitis. It can also contain heavy metals and salts your body doesn’t need to digest.
The following below is a procedure to boil water making it safe for use in an emergency. 1. First step is to locate a kettle or large pot. Which ever you can find and is much
more accessible. 2. The Second Step is to gather the water you plan on using. In an emergency you can locate water if more places than just your faucet. You can access water from your hot water tank, ice cubes, Rainwater, Streams, Ponds, Lakes, Natural springs or if you still have water well outside of your house then a water well also.
3. The Third step is to first strain the water using either a paper towel or small grain strainer just to grasp any small pieces anything that might have been in the water
visible by the eye. 4. The Fourth Step is to pour the water into the pot/kettle which ever you decide to use and set it on a low flame level on the stove allowing the water to begin to warm up
a bit. 5. The Fifth Step is to allow the water to begin to bubble and pop. You don’t want to set the flame to high because you don’t want to boil the water too quickly.
6. The Sixth step is to allow the boiled water to cool.
7. The Seventh step allows you to distribute the water for you own personal usage whether it’d be brushing your teeth, showering, or drinking.
