Store Water And Keep It Safe


Image (6) Layton_Water-tank-185-gallon.jpg for post 28512I own a 185-gallon water tank. I really like it, and it fits the needs of our family perfectly. This large, cylinder-shaped water tank is ideal for storing water. It tucks away into a corner of a room or garage. It easily fits through doors. It is gravity-fed and has an opening at the top to fill the tank. It has a drain at the bottom and a spigot-type faucet about a third of the way up from the floor to fill smaller containers.

I always keep several 5-gallon containers close by just in case I need them. I use a bottle and a half of the oxygen stabilizer ION for the 185-gallon tank and two bottles for the 250-gallon tank. I like to put the ion in at the beginning of the fill so it will mix properly with the water as it fills the tank. If you wait until the end, the ION will not get mixed in properly. ION is guaranteed to keep the water safe for up to five years and probably much longer.

These tanks also come in 250 gallon and 500 gallon sizes. They are tall and stand upright so there is no need to stack water containers on top of each other. This tank takes up less space in a garage or room than any other water storage tanks. Because it is gravity fed, it does not need a pump to get the water out. There are indentations in the tank so it can be strapped to a wall for extra strength in an earthquake.

The tankers are shipped from Utah. The shipping costs on average are around $250, depending on where it is shipped. If you ship two tanks together to the same location, the shipping cost is cut by about 40 percent. If interested, please e-mail for a shipping quote.

ION Very Effective For Water Purification

ION Stabilized Oxygen 2 oz. bottleStabilizing oxygen is a proprietary process in which sodium chloride is added to purified water to increase electrical conductivity. The sodium chloride helps facilitate the process of manufacturing ION, a product that stabilizes the oxygen in the water by separating the oxygen molecules from the water. The electrolysis process starts with a saline solution similar to that used by most hospitals. This saline solution is made up of seven different salts collected from around the world. The entire process takes about 30 days. The end product is called ION. It has a very high concentration of oxygen, safe pH levels, with very little sodium chloride remaining in the product. The 30-day brewing process removes the acid from the product and makes it an alkaline base. Alkaline base products are better for your health because bacteria and disease cannot grow in an alkaline environment

Our Bodies Require Oxygen To Rebuild And Repair

Our bodies are amazing in that they require oxygen in every process and function involved in the absorption of nutrients, the reproduction and repair of the healthy cells and the elimination of unhealthy or dead cells. Stabilized oxygen goes into the cells and gives them the much-needed oxygen to rebuild and repair, which helps the body’s natural defenses of the immune system.

ION stands for Ions of Oxygen Negative. It is the negative charge of the ion oxygen molecule that attracts and steals away the positive charge of any anaerobic bacteria in the water. It acts like a magnet attracting and attaching to the bad bacteria or foreign free radical, thus killing them. Anaerobic oxygen cannot live in an oxygen environment thus the ION treatment kills, and eradicates bacteria, some viruses, toxins, fungus, mold, parasites, toxic chemicals and inorganic substances that are either added to or leach into our drinking water.

Dangers Of Non-Purified Or Untreated Water

When people drink untreated water, even from a stream in the mountains, it can be dangerous and even deadly if the following bacteria and parasites are present: cholera, typhoid, dysentery, flukes, leeches, giardia, cryptosporidium, hepatitis A and E. coli. The pathogens can cause vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, weight loss, fever, abdominal cramping and extreme pain. Typhoid can cause extremely high fever and illness. Some of them are waterborne and get into the water through fecal matter. Giardia is a parasite that attaches to the intestines of humans and animals. Symptoms include severe headaches, inflamed liver, weakness, anorexia and jaundice and can be fatal.

ION is great for wilderness water treatment. I take it with me when I travel to foreign countries or anyplace where the water is questionable. When ION is used in water that will be stored for emergency purposes, it will keep the water safe for at least five years. I believe every medical kit and 72-hour bug out bag should have a bottle of ION in it at all times. One bottle of ION will last for three months for one person. Every person in the family needs to have at least one bottle of ION for an emergency situation.

Filter All Dirty Water Before Using ION

When you are filtering water, it is a good idea to remove as many large particles as possible to prevent clogging your filter system. If you do not have a water filter, you must use the clearest water you can find. If you can’t find clear water, then strain the water through a bandana, cheesecloth, pantyhose or just a piece of cloth.

Another effective way to filter water is to use a 2-liter soda bottle and a coffee filter to filter out large particles and sediment. Cut off the top third of the soda bottle. Place the pour spout upside down inside the bottom of the bottle. Place the coffee filter in the top and filter the water through the bottle. After the water has been filtered, use ION stabilized oxygen to kill bacteria in the water. ION and coffee filters should be in everyone’s emergency kit or 72-hour backpack.

Is ION Safer Than Other Products On The Market?

ION has a mild taste similar to sodium chloride (salt) without the harmful side effects of chlorine. It is nontoxic to the skin or body and works very well for water purification. That is why it is so much safer to use than chlorine bleach, iodine, colloidal silver or hydrogen peroxide. All these products can be toxic when taken in large doses.

ION Can Be Taken Internally

ION is well known for killing bacteria in the human body when taken internally and used medicinally as a health supplement. It should be taken at the first sign of flu, cold or any other bacterial infection. All you do is put 20 drops of ION in an 8-ounce glass of water, stir, let it set for a minute and drink it. It has been tested by many labs and has all the documentation to prove its effectiveness against harmful pathogens (disease-causing microbes).

ION Can Be Used Externally

Use ION to sterilize cuts, scratches and bruises, infections, wounds, fever blisters, herpes, cold sores, burns, insect bites, spider bites, bee stings and mosquito bites. ION will not kill friendly flora or good bacteria. In fact, it stimulates the growth and development of beneficial bacteria.

ION is great for plants, root cuttings, transplants, sterilizing cooking tools and surfaces, extending the life of milk and juices, and in making yogurt.

Shelf Life Of ION

ION stores indefinitely on the shelf if kept in a cool environment and out of direct sunlight.
