The dry calcium hypochlorite IS NOT used directly into the water being purified.
Here's the recommendation from the EPA website.
GRANULAR CALCIUM HYPOCHLORITE.
Add and dissolve one heaping teaspoon of high-test granular calcium hypochlorite (approximately 1/4 ounce) for each two gallons of water. The mixture will produce a "stock chlorine" solution of approximately 500 mg/L, since the calcium hypochlorite has an available cchlorine equal to 70
percent of its weight. (THESE STOCK CHLORINE GALLONS ARE LIKE BLEACH GALLONS)
To disinfect water, add the clorine solution in the ratio of one part of chlorine solution to each 100 parts of water to be treated. This is roughly equal to adding 1 pint (16 0z.) of stock chlorine to each 12.5 gallons of water to be disinfected. To remove any objectionable chlorine odor, aerate the water by allowing the water to stand exposed to the air for a few hours
or by pouring it from one clean container to another several times.
As always if the water is colored or cloudy add more of the solution (EPA says for regular Chlorine Bleach to double the amount of chlorine used).

as for water I have been using the Katadyn filters for years. I am looking into a large cistern for storing filtered ground water to supplement my town water consumption.

Most of the money for Remnants was raised via the Web. For a while if you donated $25 you would get a copy of the DVD when it came out. Last I heard was they are coming out end of Sept.

In the beginning of this thread, folks were wondering how to convince the women that prepping was a good idea.
Well, it's hurricane season. We haven't had a bad one in a while and I would say we are due.
Remember Hurricane Bob? I remember we had no power for a few days. Preppers lived just fine - others maybe did not. And that was only a few days.

i have a berkey system, works great, we use it for direct drinking, anything made with water, i.e. tea coffie etc. it takes the after taste out of the water, and i'm sure a bunch of crud we cant taste. i got it online from "the berkey guy"

i picked up from shelfreliance.com a can rotation system. you put the new cans in the top and the older stuff comes out the bottom. cost an arm and a leg but well worth it. plus it keeps the wife from grabbing the first can she comes across when making dinner
