The chemicals (mainly chlorine) required to make it "safe" couldnt be replaced.Why would the nation's clean water supply begin to run out in two weeks if trucks stopped? As long as the electric power worked the water should be fine almost everywhere.
I would think they would have more than a two week supply of chemicals. Would be simple enough to do water rationing if required. Also many of the chemicals used might not be needed and the water could still be safe to drink in at least some places.The chemicals (mainly chlorine) required to make it "safe" couldnt be replaced.
I could see having this as an activity for children at schools. Pieces of rope, laminated instruction charts. Much better than screen time.Our kids and grandkids learned their knots with that chart. I had a nice laminated one with a book to go with it and two color practice rope. Brought it to the Amish school when we closed ours.
I have made a bunch of these as well. I need to put one in my BOB. Another great activity to involve children in.Those buddy burners work great. Grandson and I made a bunch of them one day, we used old candles and coiled strips of corrugated cardboard. Tested one of them and it burned for 9 hours. Used empty tuna cans and cat food cans.
