To function properly, the human body needs much more water than food. Without the possibility of normal water consumption, dehydration occurs and the chances of survival are rapidly decreasing. And we are talking about clean, drinking water after purification and filtration..
Means for disinfecting, cleaning and filtering water in a wearable kit or survival kit.
You can’t just collect and drink any water. Even if it at first glance seems transparent and clean to you. Almost all natural water, with rare exceptions, should initially be considered contaminated and contaminated.

Therefore, in order not to depend heavily on these factors, it will be very prudent to have with them alternative chemicals for cleaning water. This will reduce energy consumption in an emergency and significantly save time..
Water disinfection in the field can be carried out both in the old-fashioned way, using potassium permanganate (the color of the water should be slightly pink) or 2% iodine solution (5-10 drops per liter), and using various tablets and powders for water purification. Manufactured on a chlorine, carbon or iodine basis.
water disinfection may not be enough. In case of its severe pollution, water will require mandatory purification and filtration. Here small-sized filter tubes may come in handy. For example, Aquamira Frontier Emergency Water Filter, Aquamira Frontier Pro Water Filter and the like.
home or carriage (car) survival kits and kits. Remember that most industrial in-line water filters can only clean, but not disinfect, water. Therefore, in case of the slightest doubt about the quality of water, it should be boiled or chemically treated..
napkins, if available in the first-aid kit and so on.
