Keep Your Filters Clean

In times of emergency and disasters you have to be sure the water filter you use is clean. Having clean water in those times is a number one priority. Sometimes, you think that if you have a filter is enough in times of emergency, but you should think twice. First of all you have to make sure that your filter is clean and ready to use. Then, make sure that all of the things that will touch the water are clean too. If you do not take care of that and the filtered water runs through dirty pipes, it will get contaminated. Make sure your equipment is clean. Disinfect all surfaces that will come in contact with the water with a bleach solution. Wash well after applying the bleach. Make sure the bleach you use is no more than one year old, because after this time the bleach loses its strength. Bear in mind that in order to have clean water you have to keep it in a closed container, because this way it will not be exposed to any other contamination like bugs, dirt etc. Remember to use gloves when handling the clean water, because if you do it with dirty hands, you will contaminate it. If you choose to use plastic containers, make sure you avoid ones marked with 3 and 6 as this plastic contains harmful chemicals that may leak into the water.

Be prepared in times of emergency – have your water filter clean and ready to use.
