Understanding the Basics of Emergency Water Purification

There is a great article on the basics of emergency water purification on The Ready Store’s blog. Read the article at this link.

The article discusses the 7 basic areas of concern, namely: Protozoa – Cryptosporidium and Giardia, Bacteria, Viruses, Parasites, Particulate, Chemicals, and Taste/Odor. 

It then discusses the three basic methods of purifying water: boiling, chemicals, and filtering.

There is also some very useful information in the comments regarding  water treatment using distillation and UV irradiation methods.

A short article but very informative, you should take a minute and check it out. It is laced with advertizing but hey, you have to make a living somehow.
