In an emergency, nothing matters more than having a sufficient supply of clean water. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) emphasizes the importance of storing at least one gallon of water per person per day in your emergency supply. The Shelf Reliance Water Storage System provides you with the means to store and access healthy water at home. Use your supply of clean water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and washing, all while keeping yourself hydrated and comfortable in case of an emergency. In addition to the BPA-free 55 gallon drum, the Shelf Reliance Water Storage System includes extra tools to help you put your water supply to good use:The high-quality water pump is the ideal accessory for accessing and transferring water. With 60 PSI at the point of contact, you'll find it to be an indispensable tool for all sorts of emergency and household situations. The pump also comes with a special adapter and is adjustable for use on all water storage containers between 5 gallons up to 55 gallons. The pump can also be used to draw water from other natural water sources like lakes, rivers and streams. Included are two (2) Advanced filters which attach to the Water Pump and each yield up to 100 gallons of fresh, clean, drinkable water enough to fill up the barrel nearly 4 times! Seychelle s exclusive filters are the most laboratory and field-tested of their kind in the world using EPA protocols and tested to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 and 53 by Broward Testing laboratory. These filters reduce or remove 99.99% of chlorine, chemicals, and heavy metals; and up to 99.9999% of bacteria and virus using its proprietary Ionic Adsorption Micron Filtration System.Using these filters allows you to store water for an extended period without having to use chemicals to treat before drinking. Also included is a heavy-duty bung wrench which can double as a gas shut-off tool and provide access to other storage barrels of all sizes.
