How to Find Water in Survival Disaster Situation is life saving knowledge that every person should invest in learning.
In survival, the rule of threes is a quick reference guide for how long one can generally stay alive in a survival emergency.
You can survive three minutes without breathable air (unconsciousness generally occurs).
You can survive three hours in a harsh environment (extreme heat or cold).
You can survive three days without drinkable water.
You can survive three weeks without edible food.
You can live without food, but you cannot live without water. Dehydration and dying from that is much more quicker than starvation. As bad as your stomach may depend on food, the whole body needs water and you need to find a source of it if stranded somewhere. By knowing the nature of all insects and animals, you can find their stores of water.
First of all, avoid polluted water because it will have disease and you will die a more grotesque death from a water-borne disease. In a foreign country, avoid tap water in general places; good hotels will purify theirs. Knowing what water is clean is hard to do in the wild; boiling it will kill the bacteria and ensure its safety. This is where you might have heard of the boiling adversary in places where the power is out after a natural disaster. Don’t take a chance on water that could be contaminated.
Then, there is muddy water. You can clean that, but it takes time. Let it sit for a dozen hours, circulate it with a bamboo stick, pour the water through a cloth filled with sand to keep the mud out, and boil for 10 minutes. There are several other ways to clean water, purifying it to make it taste well naturally. But, you have to do it whatever way because you want to avoid diseases like dysentery, cholera, and typhoid.
Fresh water can also be found along the coast of the sea by digging up behind the sand hills behind ocean the beach, a sand well which holds a lot of water.
