Does anyone have a recommendation on a water filter that will provide desalinization? Preferably something that will work with pump action. We are surrounded by water lots and lots of water. "Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink" In a SHTF situation water will mean life or death here. There are 3-4 water sources here
1. Rain-forest- not a viable for us
2. Rivers- polluted from runoff
3. Rain collection-cisterns
4. Water from public supply created from desalinization
*we have access to a rather large swimming pool but that water will only last so long as it is a shared source
So I need to do something after our 2-3 week reserve is gone as these are unreliable after the SHTFedit on 23-7-2011 by IslandGirl because: grammar
Our complete line of 316SS and Duplex SS desalination pumps offer corrosion-resistance, strength and long life in the desalting process of pumping sea water under high pressure. We have many desalination pumps operating in all locations around the world in systems on large ships, offshore platforms, island support and mobile units for remote locations helping to provide affordable fresh water.

That's the facts and it doesn' tmatter to me how I go out. All I know is that I'm going to die and no amount of Survival Preparations is going to stop that.I don't understand why some people don't want to die before a certain age or care how they go out.
Death is death.

I don't worry about preparing for that kind of stuff, simply because we aren't supposed to worry about it. The same God who supplied over 600,000 people with enough food and water every day for 40 years in the middle of a barren desert will have no problem supplying enough food and water for those who truly love Him when things get bad.

I lived in the islands for years and one learns to sip(shelter in place) you know the area and the people.I would think if you show up somewhere you will be seen as a outsider and that in itself could be a problem.I am as prepared as time and money will allow for me and my clan.I obtained the foxfire books back in the 70's still good reading and it is always good to have maps of the local and state area,learned that after a few hurrricanes...seen some good ideas on here but guess it comes down to what you believe you need to do...

I'm not preparing because most of you guys are paranoid whack jobs.
Even the intelligent ones sometimes astound me with their ability to believe in nonsense.
Anyways, at this point, it is reasonable to think the US market and country itself may collapse, but from judging by the history books, there will not be 300 million starving or dead Americans like everyone here seems to perpetuate.
If i lived in the middle of new york , yeah i would have a bail out plan. but i live in the middle of canada and there is so much resources, food, supplies , farmers, all that stuff. I really believe me being a fit 26 year old male would be able to survive. If you are old , feeble, or unable to go anywhere, then maybe i could agree with having 3 months worth of food in stock, or 3 months worth of needed medications. But to plan for an Apocalypse is crazy.edit on 15-4-2011 by donkeystyle because: (no reason given)
