Disinfection of Drinking Water (Potable)

From Clorox's website:

http://www.clorox.com/solutions_reg_bleach.php

  • Disinfection of Drinking Water (Potable)
    When boiling of water for 1 minute is not practical, water can be made potable by using this product. Prior to addition of this product, remove all suspended material by filtration or by allowing it to settle to the bottom. Decant the clarified contaminated water to a clean container and add 8 drops of this product to 1 gallon of water [(2 drops to 1 quart)]. Allow the treated water to stand for 30 minutes. Properly treated water should have a slight chlorine odor. If not, repeat dosage and allow the water to stand an additional 15 minutes. The treated water can then be made palatable by pouring it between clean containers several times.
    For cloudy water, use 16 drops of this product per gallon of water [(4 drops to 1 quart)]. If no chlorine odor is apparent after 30 minutes, repeat dosage and wait an additional 15 minutes.

CSM,

Water seems to be one of those item people overlook when making their survival preparations. You can't live very long (3 days maybe a couple more if your lucky and in good condition), and you need at least a gallon/day/person for drinking, and another two for sanitation purposes. A person could probably make do with less, but dehydration is just as deadly as a bullet in the long run.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness for a reason. When medical treatment is limited, staying healthy and clean is your best bet.
