Your Water Purifier and Drinking Flood Water

by Bill Hanover on May 14, 2011

Hi Folks,

Just a quick note about using your water purifier with flood waters.

Almost anything contaminating water during a flood can and will be removed with the Black Berkey Purification Elements.

If you ever find yourself stranded in flood waters there is a very real chance that your regular water supply will not be available.

That’s ok… most flood water should be safe to drink once you pass it through your Berkey Water Purifier! Exceptions to this might be if there is a lot of gasoline or other flammable liquid or high chemical contamination in it, or if it is primarily salt water. The purification elements are not designed to purify salt water, but I’d sure recommend you try if you are thirsty!

Floods are awful and at the time of this writing the Mississippi has far overflowed her banks and many are suffering. I sure hope folks have vacated the area, but if you are currently, or ever find yourself sitting on your rooftop waiting for help… Break out the Best Water Purifier and have a drink! It should be just fine and buy you the time you need to get rescued!

All the Best to You and Yours,
