Water The Absolute Basic

While clean, safe water is essential to life, it is not always readily available. Considering that you can live for approximately three weeks without food, but only three days without water, you must have access to clean water…always.

Storing water is as easy as turning on the faucet – as long as you store it before an emergency arises! If you wait until it’s critical, then both frustration and costs increase – in direct proportion to the water’s availability! In “Water The Absolute Basic” you will be given recommendations to guide you in this fairly simple storage project.
