Surviving Water Disruption
There are various ways of storing water to cope with water disruption:
1. Prepare a large barrel
Need to prepare this big barrel which is very useful when there is no water.
2. A pot is fine
If you don’t have a big barrel, use a pot or any kitchen item that can hold water.

3. Big plastic
Use a large plastic. Even plastic waste can be used, fill it with water and tie it. Save as much mana as you like. Some also put large plastic in the basket.
4. Water dispenser for the sink
It is easy to wash anything like a water pipe.
5. Use disposable plates, cups and spoons
No need to waste water supply for washing, buy stock for 51 hours without water. You can also use plastic as a plate.
6. Mineral water for drinking
Buy mineral water to drink. Stored water is used for more essential needs only.
7. Prepare food stock
Cooking usually uses a lot of water. Make a stock side dish and keep it in the freezer during the period without water. When you want to eat, just heat it.
8. Wet wipes
Use these for general cleaning instead of soap and water.
