Dublin, California (EastBayDaily) — The Panic Store in Dublin is reminding everyone about the importance of water, which is one of the most important necessities for life. The store is also giving out tips on how to preserve and purify water.
“Do not take water for granted,” said Ken Minard of The Panic Store. “It may not be there when you need it. Store some water now!”
Water is a very essential part of life. Everyone uses it daily for different purposes including keeping the body healthy and hydrated, in cooking, in personal hygiene, and many more.
As water is one of the basic elements for survival, The Panic Store suggests that every family should store at least one gallon per day per person and pet, in new and air-tight sealed containers. For large families, 30 to 55 gallons of water is recommended to be stored in water drums with siphon pumps.
The easiest way to disinfect emergency drinking water is to use a few drops of regular Clorox bleach (not fresh scent or lemon fresh.) Some of the steps that The Panic Store is sharing to disinfect and store water include: Containers should be new (unused) blow molded, ridged, all plastic containers made of virgin polyethylene resin with air tight seal. A 5-gallon water bottle is ideal for water storage. Fill the container with uncontaminated water, and then add 16 drops of regular Clorox bleach per gallon. Stir, and let stand for 30 minutes. If the water does not have a slight bleach odor, repeat the dosage and let stand for another 15 minutes. Then seal the container with a plastic wrap tied off with a rubber band or zip tie. The water is now good for six months. After that time, the treatment can be repeated.
Dublin’s, The Panic Store also recommends using a carbon filter straw for drinking that filters for taste and odors. Other methods of water purification include boiling water, using germicidal tablets, and high quality micron water filters.
The Panic Store offers materials for storing and purifying water such as the water preserver concentrate which enables storage of water for five years, siphon pumps, bung wrenches, and tamper caps. The Panic Store reminds everyone that knowing how to preserve and purify water is very important in today’s world, when an unexpected disaster could occur at any time.
