No matter what kind of outdoor adventure you go on, you have to know how to clean your water. It’s a useful skill that can make a difference in any kind of problem situation. This article mainly introduces the ways to purify water.



1. Boiling

Boiling water is one of the best wilderness water purification methods. Boiling clear water is the most efficient way to make it safe to drink. Most bacteria and microorganisms can’t survive in boiling water, and they will likely die off during the heating process.


Only boil clear water. If you boil water contaminated with physical materials like dirt and leaves, you could still end up getting sick from the heavy minerals that will seep into your water. Even stagnant water from lakes can be boiled and purified.


With a solid container and a decent fire, you could have purified water in as little as 10 minutes. Just make sure that you let the water bubble for at least five minutes before you remove it from the fire. Once your water has been thoroughly boiled, let it rest for another five minutes.



2. Tablets or Drops

If you plan to make a checklist to build up your emergency supplies, be sure to add purification tablets or drops to the list. When you don’t know how to purify water in the wild, these can work in a pinch.


The most common ingredients in the filtration tablets are iodine, chlorine, and potassium permanganate. In small enough doses, these ingredients aren’t harmful. However, they are extremely efficient at removing harmful organisms in your drinking water.

One drawback of tablets is that you will need a way to measure the amount of water you’re going to purify, so that you don’t overuse or under-use the tablets. Most tablets require about 20 liters of water.


Here are the steps you need to take when purifying drinking water with tablets:


- Filter 20 liters (or required amount) until water is clear.

- Fill your container with water and add the drops or tablets in as instructed.

- Shake or stir the container for about 10-20 seconds to ensure that everything is evenly mixed.

- Let the water rest for at least 20 minutes before you drink it.



3. Distillation

There are numerous ways you can distill water. The great thing about distilling water is that you can use almost any liquid, including urine and even salt water from the ocean.

4. Pasteurization

To pasteurize water, it needs to be heated to 149 degrees Fahrenheit for several minutes. This method will also not remove contaminants such as heavy metals, salts, and chemicals.
