The 9 Water Purification Methods: What They Treat and their Pros and Cons
Having a water purification method is one of the most important parts of disaster prepping. But it is also one of the most confusing.

The reality is that there is no one “best” method of purifying water in disaster situations.
Which water purification method to use depends on your situation and the types of threats present.
