Augason Farms Emergency Water Storage Kit - 6 barrels
Water is a very important part of your food storage and preparedness plan. Each Emergency Water Storage Kit starts with a durable 55-gallon barrel designed specifically for water storage, a closed storage system with two fittings for convenience. The hand pump, with its siphon hose, is easy to use and will transfer up to five gallons of water per minute. The bucket lid opener allows quick and easy opening of barrels, pails and buckets without lid damage. Storing potable water at home in case of shortages or an emergency is a wise precaution. And if you want to keep your stored water useful, the included water treatment drops are ideal, purifying up to 60 gallons each. Its four-year shelf life is not affected by partial use of a bottle, and it's effective on bacteria, viruses and cysts. When used properly, it leaves no unpleasant aftertaste and meets stringent EPA guidelines.

Instructions for use of the hand pump and siphon hose
Place the suction end of the hose in the water source and the other end in the receiving container. Be sure that the source is at a higher level than the end container, otherwise siphoning will not occur. Pump the handle repeatedly to start the siphoning process, which should begin automatically once the hose is full. Alternately, the hand pump can be used without the siphoning effect to manually move the water from the source to the receiving container.
