Buy Survival Water

Updated on May 24, 2012

You need water to survive

Any survivalist or water salesman will tell you that the three crucial factors for long-term survival are food, water, and shelter. Many of the same folks readily admit that the world just might be scheduled to end Real Soon Now. Mayan Calendar research indicates that Mayans have been long gone, but 2012 may include a few really bad days, survival-wise.

Don't find yourself thirsty. Be sure to stock up on water and water-related supplies just in case apocalyptic events sneak up on your neighborhood. We've done the work: simply browse our detailed list of products guaranteed to slake the deepest thirst as civilization crumbles. You must choose, but choose wisely. Actually, you don't have to choose: simply order everything.

Datrex Emergency Water Pouches Case of 64 for Survival Kits, Disaster Supplies, 5 Year Shelf Life

In 4 years and 364 days you will be thirsty. It's comforting to know that tucked away on a dusty shelf at the back of the bunker are pouches of long-term water designed to remain drinkable for 5 years. Highly skilled H20 engineers designed these pouches to withstand over 599 pounds of pressure: use them as water containment devices or build a barricade with them when zombies gather for a full frontal assault.

Each pouch efficiently stores 125 ml (milliliters) of water, a perfect amount for tucking into your Kevlar vest before a long hike through bombed-out subdivisions in search of recyclables. Keep yourself hydrated regardless of how the world ended.

Portable Water Filter Aqua Mira Frontier Pro Survival Kit, Disaster Preparedness, Earthquake, Camping, Emergencies

Survival in apocalyptic situations is much like camping, except the park ranger is a zombie and your camping space is up for grabs every time you hike down to the creek to hunt crawdads. Be prepared to purify your water in either situation.

You don't even need a pump. This handy device removes over 99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia things, which also want to survive, but let them get their own lower intestine, right?

It's great for emergencies such as earthquakes or campgrounds with yucky tap water.

Original Big Berkey Survival Package includes a Big Berkey with ceramic filters, 1 Waterbob, and 2 Berkey sport bottles.

If you plan to survive at home, this handy device will produce over 100 gallons of clean drinking water. A Waterbob offers state of the art bladder-based water control. Simply lay it in your bathtub and fill it with water (after taking a bath). As needed, transfer that sequestered water to the 2.5 gallon stainless steel filtering device. Water goes in the top and comes out the bottom. When it comes out the bottom, it's drinkable and also useful for reconstituting powdered eggs.

Swiss Army 5 Gallon Tough Rubber Water Bladder for Shower & Storage - Military Surplus - NOS

If you've ever been a member of the Swiss Army, or ever hung around Swiss Army folks, you know how good they smell. They take showers all the time, despite working diligently to protect Sweden and also to build those wonderful Swiss Army Knives. This extremely handy portable bladder hangs from any tree of any nationality and dribbles out a cleansing shower onto your head. No one can survive very long without bathing, especially if you expect to rebuild civilization anytime soon.

Don't run for hills without a few of these kits stowed in your Hello Kitty camouflage backpack.

Shark Cave Escape 3D

Fortify your bunker, then lay in massive quantities of food and water. Should you be left with free time, whip out your Android phone and play a few games of Shark Cave Escape 3D. Sharks love water more than anything except escaping from caves. Eventually your phone battery will die: make sure you've built up a few memories by saving the virtual life of a virtual shark on a tiny screen.

Marine Combat Water Survival: Mcrp 3-02C

Should you find yourself with too much water, refer to the Marine Combat Water Survival Guide. Better yet, read it before you attempt to paddle through a war zone or sail up the Potomac. Learn how to traverse water obstacles and perform water rescues (not of sharks) correctly and safely.

You don't have the option of deciding in advance where to survive. Actually, you do, because if you build an underground shelter and hunker down in your bunker for extended periods, then you probably don't need water survival techniques unless a neighboring clan sticks a garden hose in your exhaust vent. We hate when that happens.

      I'll opt for the ceramic filters and a rainwater tank - I'm betting we will still have rain, Nicomp.

      Nicomp - Derdriu took the words out of my mouth (which is very unsanitary).

      nicomp: This sentence says it all: "Actually, you don't have to choose: simply order everything."

      After journeying through these very thoughtful offerings from companies which clearly are disaster-oriented, I would, however, have to put in a massive order for the Swiss Army "handy portable bladder" and suspend them everywhere so that I and everyone else are always close to cleanliness, the basis for cogitating on challenges and arriving at viable solutions. :-)

      The time and thoughtfulness which you put into this apocalyptic hub are greatly appreciated.

      This garners every possible vote.
