Creative Water Sources.

first_imgSometimes having water for an emergency, whether it’s the weather or Y2K, means knowing where to look.”The tank of your hot water heater or water pressure tankcan supply many gallons of emergency water,” said Judy Harrison,a University of Georgia Extension food safety specialist.Check Pipes, Ice Trays and Toilet Tank”You could also use water in your plumbing and in icecubes,” Harrison said. “As a last resort, you can usewater in the reservoir tank of your toilet (not the bowl) — butpurify it first.”During a natural disaster, consider water from wells, cisternsand other disaster-area delivery systems unsafe until tested.To use the water in your hot water tank:* Turn off the electric or gas supply to the water heater.* Open the drain at the bottom of the tank to retrieve thewater.* Start the water flowing by turning off the water intake valveand turning on a hot-water faucet. Don’t turn on the gas or electricitywhen the tank is empty.* When power is restored and the tank refills with water, turnon the gas or electric to heat the water.To use the water in your pipes:* Turn on the faucet at the highest point in your house tolet air into the plumbing system.* Drain the water from the pipes through the lowest faucetin the house. If the main water valve is closed, be sure thatgas to heat the water is turned off to prevent overheating.Water Beds Can Be Life Savers”Water beds can be emergency water sources, too,”Harrison said. “Beds hold up to 400 gallons, but some waterbeds contain toxic chemicals that aren’t fully removed by manypurifiers.”If you designate a water bed in your home as an emergency resource,drain it yearly and refill it with fresh water containing twoounces of bleach per 120 gallons.Emergency water sources can be found outside your home, too.Rainwater, streams, rivers and other moving bodies of water, pondsand lakes and natural springs are all good sources of water. Butremember to purify the water before drinking it.”You should purify all uncertain water before using itfor drinking, food preparation or personal hygiene,” Harrisonsaid.Purify, Purify, PurifyThere are several ways to purify water.”None is perfect,” Harrison said. “The bestsolution is a combination of methods.”Here are two common, easy purification methods:Boiling is the safest method. Put water ina clean saucepan or other cooking container. Bring the water toa rolling boil and continue boiling for 10 minutes, keeping inmind that some water will evaporate. Let the water cool beforedrinking, keeping it covered during cooling.Boiled water may taste “flat” when opened. Improvethe flavor by incorporating air into the water by shaking or pouringit back and forth between two clean containers.Chlorination uses liquid household chlorinebleach to kill microorganisms. Add 2 drops of bleach per quartof water (4 drops if the water is cloudy). Mix it thoroughly andlet it stand for 30 minutes.If the water doesn’t slightly taste and smell of chlorine atthat point, add another dose and let it stand another 15 minutes.Test it again.”Distillation and purification tablets are also usefulways to make water safe,” Harrison said.(Photo by Faith Peppers, University of Georgia College ofAgricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more
