Of all the resources needed after a catastrophe strikes—food, heat, electricity, communication, transportation—none are as important as simple water. While a substantial supply should be stored, water's size and weight make storage impractical for long-term survival. Therefore it's equally critical to know how to acquire and purify additional water supplies over time. This guide addresses all of these factors and more with straight-forward instruction anyone can follow. Suitable for novice and expert preppers alike, this book's laser-sharp focus on water allows for a depth of information not found in any other guide. Storage is the first area covered including details on types of containers, where to store them, and how to avoid contamination—from basic bottles to large tanks. The author follows with real-world applications for harvesting water from every possible source including digging a well, collecting rain, and purifying lake and river water. Whether you are looking to set up a supply for a week, month, year, or longer, this book offers a solution for your specific need.

    This is a very quick and easy read. It covers the basics without bewildering a new-to-emergency-preparedness person. It really paints a clear picture for folks who forget about water planning or think that it can't happen to them. A number of the tips and suggestions are not viable for city living or those in an apartment or condo. The end of the book recap was very nice as was the suggested supply list.

    It's not that I'm convinced disaster is coming for me, it's that my kindest friend is and wanted me to be prepared. And also I'm a pin-head who studies water, academically. So I read this book my kindest friend gave me on how we will die without water and what to do about that. General review: the chapters are short and readable and contain bulleted lists/instructions that would be easy to work from.

And also I'm a pin-head who studies water, academically. So I read this book my kindest friend gave me on how we will die without water and what to do about that. General review: the chapters are short and readable and contain bulleted lists/instructions that would be easy to work from. Importantly, many of Luther's recommendations are actionable, involving either household supplies or cheapish, accessible materials. For my purposes, what was most valuable was the reminder that water insecurity comes from not total societal collapse (or the collapse of the state) etc but the disruption of relatively fragile infrastructure that can take a long time to repair (editor: U.S. bombing of water infrastructure in Iraq during the first Gulf War estimated to have killed over one-hundred thousand civilians. See Nagy. I.e. F Pres. Bv1). No water, no life. And in a world if increasing climate instability, those shocks to the grid will be more frequent. And that's the complex the book is playing w/: the anxiety that disaster is close, that it will catch you unprepared and you will suffer because you didn't prepare in small ways. I'm also intrigued by the larger prepper culture/life style Luther casually refers to. Though it's not so alien. In Luther's little stories, I remember my own childhood living in a house in the woods at the end of the road, the power going down and us having to treat water in a very different way, knowing and prepared to do that. The book, in its accounts of the expense of storing and hauling water also reminds me how much WORK goes into producing this most basic commodity. Now when the grid does down I can make brown in a bucket lined w/a garbage bag and filled with kitty litter. Now I know to do that. Pretty good! I feel a little more confident. Thank you, kind friend. I'd also like to see a volume 2 whose focus isn't the single household. What would communal preparation look like? How does one communalize preparation? Like if I and my kind friend wanted to prepare together? And as other readers have noted, Luther assumes the reader is rural. These last two points are probably related. Of course, if disaster comes, it will most likely come in forms that can never be prepared for. Still one's trying to not be worried about not doing what one could to prepare for the kind of disaster that could be prepared for right now.

    A comprehensive, thoroughly researched guide to collecting, storing, testing, purifying, and conserving water. I skimmed it to learn what I wanted.

I skimmed it to learn what I wanted. Notes Introduction Humans consume 1 gal/person/day, not counting sanitation (bathing, cleaning house, cleaning dishes, disposing of human waste). Have at least 2-week supply of water. Storing Water Unsafe containers • Milk or juice jugs (milk protein and fruit sugar can't be adequately removed, and support bacterial growth) • Plastic containers that held non-food items (not all residue can be removed) • Non-food-grade containers (non-PET, non-PETE) Safe containers • Plastic 2-liter soda bottles • Gallon water bottles Before filling containers with tap water, thoroughly clean with dish soap and water, then rinse completely. For soda bottles, sanitize with solution of 1 tsp liquid chlorine bleach per quart of water, then rinse completely. Purifying Water Purify with rolling boil for 1 minute. Chlorine and iodine are most commonly used chemicals. Iodine • Don't use iodine-treated water for more than 14 days. • Use 1 tablet for each quart of water. • Iodine crystals are available. Chlorine • Use unscented (not scented) household chlorine bleach (not non-chlorine). • Filter before or after using chlorine. • 1% chlorine: 40 drops/gal; 4-6% chlorine: 8 drops/gal; 7-10%: 4 drops/gal. • You can use granular calcium hypochlorite (pool shock). Activated carbon filters are very popular, and remove chemicals and gases. They're best used with another purification method, like reverse osmosis. Best overall purification method is reverse osmosis with activated carbon filters, which removes most contaminants. But, they use a lot of water, and work slowly. Distillation kills most microbes and chemical contaminants. It requires a lot of energy and water, and is slow (4-5 hrs to produce 1 gal). UV light is often used with reverse osmosis to completely purify water. Gravity filters (e.g., Berkey systems) filter and purify. They're the most thorough off-grid method. Author uses Berkey system. Berkey, Platypus, Sawyer sell portable gravity filters. Author's favorite is Sawyer Mini.

    Great information A lot of great information. Amazing how much water we use in a day. Will be making changes and prepare for any emergency. Thanks for the work put in to the making of this resource.

    Good content, quite short but there's only so much you can focus on with water. Goes beyond just purifying water, with other topics such as cleaning/washing and hygiene as well.

    Well, well, well… Is a place you may find water and my initial brain rumblings about Daisy Luther’s water survival guide. The “Well, well, well…” is all about me thinking I knew as much information on securing, purifying, and storing water, as possible. Being able to enjoy a book that teaches me new and simple ways to hold dear that water resource is of utmost importance in a short or long term SHTF situation.

Daisy leads you to consider t Well, well, well… Is a place you may find water and my initial brain rumblings about Daisy Luther’s water survival guide. The “Well, well, well…” is all about me thinking I knew as much information on securing, purifying, and storing water, as possible. Being able to enjoy a book that teaches me new and simple ways to hold dear that water resource is of utmost importance in a short or long term SHTF situation. Plus, this book covers way more than I thought it would. Daisy leads you to consider the facts in areas such as; sanitation, causes of illness and its toxins, how it would look & feel to be without water, and how everyone needs this resource to stay healthy. The 2 major items that I never deeply considered were the “Toxins in municipal water supplies” and “Sanitation”. They were at the back of my brain, but now I pay more attention on these issues. When it is time to actually get a plan and learn how to find, transport, store and purify the H2O, she has it all laid out in terms that any layman can understand and implement. There is no talking-down to the reader about how dense they might’ve been when it comes to always having water available. If there was anything that I’d like to have changed, it is the order in which the chapters are laid out. Perhaps add chapter 12 after chapter 4 and having an order of chapters 8, 11, 7, 9, and then 10. Having it order, in my opinion, of how one would go about the tasks of making your water plan work from top to bottom may serve the reader better. Recommended? Absolutely add this book to your prepper and/or survival library. Hey, if you don’t have a collection like that, then this is a good place to start.

    The title of this book is spot on because that is exactly what it is. The main portions of this book is all about preparing for a disaster where you won't have access to water. The beginning of this book has several modern disasters in the United States and other countries where people did not have access to clean water. The author attempts to convince you that you need to start storing up water now. She also goes on to describe her own story of not having clean drinking water.

The author attempts to convince you that you need to start storing up water now. She also goes on to describe her own story of not having clean drinking water. The next portion of the book talks about different medical problems you will have when you drink water that is not clean enough for human consumption. She then finally gets to different methods to treat water and how to store it. I found that the most interesting and helpful. The book finishes off with how to's on other things such as alternatives to bathing and cleaning. I found this book very informative and did not contain subjective material when it came to the facts.
