How To Obtain Clean Water In A Variety of Conditions
224 pages; 14 chapters and 4 appendixes
No one rejects the idea of drinking clean water. Most everyone believes that the
water that comes out of the tap in America is clean. Survival Water explains just how
dirty and dangerous American tap water truly is. It also explains how dirty American
Bottled Water really is. In fact, the startling evidence precisely explained in the book
reveals that the only clean water available in America is that obtained by steam
distillation. Then, the book covers such important topics as desalination, and the
importance of water to the survival of the planet. An entire interesting section is
devoted to how to find water in the urban or rural jungle, when you need it to
survive. The book also includes some very interesting facts on how to build your
own water distillation process still in the woods, and even at home. If you drink
water, or bathe with water, you really should read Survival Water.
“The ancients were aware that the sea could produce pure water. In the fourth century B.C. a method of desalination by
evaporating sea water was described by Aristotle. Greeks and sailors of that era drank fresh water desalted from ocean
water, in their ships.
Other early methods of desalination included the wick siphons used for passing saline water through threads of wool,
which trapped the salts. The Romans, in the first century A.D. filtered seawater through clay. Water distillation
processes became a common means of desalting water in the fourth century.
Arabian chemists wrote instructions for distilling water in the 8th century. In the 1500's one writer described four methods
of purifying sea water: "by filtering through sand, by clean linen laid over a boiler and squeezing the moisture out…by
distillation, and also by bowls from white virgin wax..." "
