Survival Gear: Part 5 - Water.

There is simply no survival hope without adequate clean water. I certainly am not interested in drinking my own urine if I can help it. If all else fails remember to boil water. “Water temperatures above 185° F (85° C) kill all pathogens within a few minutes. So in the time it takes for water to reach the boiling point (212° F or 100° C) all pathogens will be killed, even at high altitude. The moment your drinking water reaches a rolling boil, the water has already become safe to drink.” ..How Many Minutes To Boil Water Until Safe To Drink? - 30 minutes at 160° F - 3 minutes at 185° F - Instant at 212° F.
