How to test your drinking water

The importance of testing your drinking water.
As a prepper it's important to test your water if you live off grid
because of your well water, livestock, aquaponics and irrigation;
however, even if you're a prepper who lives in an urban
environment you'll want to test your water.

County health departments regularly test for bacteria or nitrates
and you can ask them to help you test your water for free if you
have concerns. Test kits are inexpensive and you should test your
water for peace of mind.

Everybody deserves clean drinking water:

  • Water testing in Alaska. Alaskans often have private water
    sources and have more problems with water quality than
    most. That's why water testing is so important if you're
    living off-grid in Alaska. Poor water quality can come from
    naturally occurring minerals, animal waste, sewer and septic
    infiltration and poorly installed or degraded water systems.
    Fecal Coliform Bacteria is a typical problem in Alaska water
    quality because of urban runoff. Peppers in Nome and Dutch
    Harbor Alaska should test water for Cesium, a radioactive
    isotope contaminant.

  • Water testing in Flint Michigan.
