I like to drink a lot...of water. TX dry climate and heat, what's your water plan?

    I really consider obtaining, cleaning and resupplying water to be enemy number one in any kind of long term emergency survival situation here in TX.

    Funny you mentioning this. Just came across this cool vid series, and it's from a guy in San Antonio:

    Rainwater Collection System Series - YouTube

    Minus the cost of materials, can't beat FREE water! ;)

    Also, seems like the most important aspect always boils down to filtering and purification. Any recommendations there? Lately, I've been thinking about getting a Berkey water filter for the kitchen. I looked around at tons of other options, from whole house filtration systems, to portable/semi-portable types like Berkey's, but there are too many options to choose from.

    i read on some of the prepper sites that you can store water in gallon jugs for up to a year with just a few drops of bleach in each container

    I've just got my water filters from my hiking daze. A lot of work to get a liter of water and it just removes most parasites in the water, not chemicals (which is why I ask about about how to clean the pool water).

    I suppose the first question I should ask is how much I can realistically keep on hand, how to store it and how long it will last.
