    I read an article Better than Bleach: Use Calcium Hypochlorite to Disinfect Water That explains how to use grannular pool shock to make supplies of chlorine to sanitize drinking water.

    It's PERFECT! especially for camping/hiking where carrying a gallon jug of anything but water would be highly impractical. I also have another solution which fits in your shirt's a portable UV light bar used to kill all micro-organisms in fresh water for drinking. Before you do that, of course you can use coffee filters to get the 'Icky' particulates out of the water.

    Thanks for that eye opener. I was wondering how I was going to store all the bleach that we would need for us and our livestock.

    Thanks. Here I am sitting on 6 gallons of outdated bleach. Glad to have found it now rather than when I needed it.
