Drinking water is on the short list of emergency preparedness necessities. If you rely on a municipal water system, a large natural disaster could cut off your drinking water supply. And worse, natural disasters often leave municipal water sources polluted and unsafe to drink, sometimes for weeks.
With just a little preparation and relatively minimal cost, you can be prepared to treat and store drinking water for emergency use - or for your off-grid adventures. Browse our favorite portable water treatment devices below, and don't forget to keep a good reusable water bottle on hand for a leach-free drinking vessel that will last you a lifetime.
