Re: Remember a water heater has average of 50 gal drinkable water.
I purchased a WaterBOB a couple of years ago. It's still in its box near the bathtub and can hold 100 gallons. IIRC I only paid $20.

 Quoting: monoceroo


Due to the decrease in the value of our dollar, the WaterBOB is now $29.95!

Where is the worst place to be in an extreme disaster where there will be no law. YOUR HOME!! That is where they will come first for food, supplies! There will be more then you can handle or stop! Just something to think about. Not saying act like a lunatic but these things must be discussed and once discussed then you can prepare and a prepared person is much more rationale in times of disaster then a non prepared person. Discuss it and prepare for it and you will sleep well at night and carry on.

Just something to keep in the back of your mind as we enter these uncertain times (talking long term here).

Might think about going to harbor freight and getting a flint/magnesium fire starter. Or watch some youtube videos on how to start a fire from natural items.

That's nice, but it will last one person about 50 days if 1 gallon is used per day.

I suggest more water be stored as well.

Re: Remember a water heater has average of 50 gal drinkable water.
you can not just open the base to drain the tank you have to unscrew the line on the top, if you open the hot water line you can get some out. Attach a hose to the bottom, unscrew the hot line and be sure to shut off the cold comming in. That will take about 12 hrs to drain without an air compressor to blow it out. Tilting it will remove more if you are not blowing it out. vaccuume pressure

I make and sell paracord bracelets with fire starters right in them. I also make paracord belts with a pulley belt buckle, fishing line, small weights and hooks right in them. There are really only 4 things you need. A quality knife, a fire starter, a combination water container that can be cooked with and a small amount of rope and you can build just about anything.

What? I've installed over 3000 water heaters and not one took 12 hours to drain? You don't need to open anything on top. Just open a faucet or two and you're good to go.

Incorrect.

Your home is your community. If you surround yourself with likeminded people who aren't afraid of the dark, your chances of survival are much greater.

Your rights to use violence to defend your family extend to your property line. Anyone willing to attack you in your home will attack you anywhere thus your home is the best place for safety.

The safety of your home starts with your community. If you live in a tight community where everyone helps each other, that is as good as it gets.

Running provides little safety since all crossroads and bridges will likely have checkpoints. Anyone outside of your community should be considered a threat if they come during upheaval.

You are much better standing your ground if you can, than wandering from one bad place to a place much worse. People on the move will be targeted first.

Remember the pine tree, it could save your life. The bark has nutrients and minerals in it that can keep you alive. Chew on the bark. The roots of a pine tree make great blunt weapons. A long root handle and the ball of the root. Also the pine cones have a sweet syrup in them that can be boild out and drank in the water you boiled it out with providing nutrients. Look for a pine tree if it gets that bad.

You can keep & recycle your urine by distilling it. You can also retrieve water from the atmosphere, earth, and vegetation through transpiration. A sponge, pot, pan, lid, fuel source (sterno or olive oil) and some tubing will help you more than storing 1000's of gallons.

Remember, water will become the property of the authorities under martial law. The more you have in one place, the harder it will be for you to keep it.

Wrong! Again there will be more then you can stop seeking what you have. Finding a like minded community in todays America is extremely tough and for those of you who believe you will have friends. Your friends you won't be able to count on one hand. When things get bad your worst enemy will be humans outside your family. Very strong an rational friends have killed them selves off on boats out in the oceans when they had no water to drink. It happens in a matter of hours. Your false sense of security is dangerous to both you and your family. Your home will be attacked and pillaged first and they will keep coming. The Indians lost cause the white man kept coming. Your home is a very dangerous place to be. You will not have enough ammo or defense to stop them. Just something to think about.

If your the prepared type then you must also be prepared to be the minority and every action that could take place of you being the minority. lol Common sense.
