Shiner, Texas --(Ammoland.com)- PURIFYING WATER: “Is This Water Safe to Drink?”

That question has led to disaster for many people who were caught unprepared. Knowing how to acquire water is one thing, but what do you do to make it safe to drink?

In this article, we’re going to cover some of my preferred methods for making water safe either in the field or at camp.

Before we begin I would like to clarify the differences between water filtration, purification, disinfection and distillation:

  • Disinfection, such as with chemical treatments or boiling, kills pathogens in the water, but it does not remove them. Nor does it remove chemical or heavy metal contamination.
  • Filtration removes most common pathogens and may or may not filter out heavy metals and certain chemical contaminants by the use of charcoal and micropore filters. Viruses cannot be filtered out due to their size and their ability to pass through even the tiniest filter pores.
  • Purification is the removal of all biological pathogens including viruses and most heavy metal contaminates.
  • Distillation is the process in which water is evaporated or converted to steam and recaptured.

Purification and distillation are the most effective forms of water treatment.

We will cover a sampling of techniques which range from makeshift filters to solar distillation. Just to note: I have personally researched and practiced these methods. Knowledge is important, but in my opinion, it is incomplete without experience. By putting information to practical use, you can see what really works, what won’t, and how to employ the techniques effectively.

About Shield Tactical;
Shield Tactical is a family business. Though we are not all related by blood, the bond of 2nd ammendment supporters is just as strong. My name is John W. Harrington and I am the president and founder of Shield Tactical. I have been involved in student based firearm instruction for over ten years. Over that period of time, my philosophy has been simple – make it about the shooter. Every member of our team has heard me say (more than they care to count) “People don’t come to us to hear about how great we are or what we have done, they come to us for what we can do for them”.
