Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
Zombie Apocalypse Drinking Water
by RainSaucers Inc. on March 28th, 2012

"Prepping" has gotten a lot of attention lately thanks to the approaching Mayan Apocalypse date and shows like Doomsday Preppers. Its probably no coincidence that the Walking Dead TV show is also so popular. But prepper or not, we all know that we need to be prepared in the event of disaster by having food, shelter, and an adequate supply of water.

 FEMA recommends having a 3 day supply on hand, but preppers often have much more than that plus their own water treatment mechanisms. The rationale for water treatment is that in the event of a disaster, water will be available, but not clean. 

We agree this might be true for certain disasters like floods where water might be everywhere. But there are plenty of disasters where your access to water might be restricted because your freedom of movement is restricted. For example, in the event of civil unrest your best chance of survival might be to "bug-in" and stay under the radar. In that case, where will your water come from when your supplies have run out?

This is where rainwater harvesting comes in, especially for people who are currently dependent on municipal water. By collecting rainwater you are actually increasing your chances of survival in the event of disaster because rain barrels are an independent and renewable source of water.
