Water Barrel Towers

Last week we talked about water filtration and purification methods you may need to use, should you not have enough actual water stored. The idea is, that you would be able to find a water source and filter and purify that water should you need extra.

In our "Water Storage Containers" post we talked about water storage containers, one of which is a 55 gallon barrel.
