Do You Know the Rule of 3? – Are You Prepared Accordingly?

Survival Rule of 3

Do You Know the Rule of 3? – Are You Prepared Accordingly?

While we may be called Emergency Food NZ today we’re discussing something that is even more important in preparing for the unexpected than food. What is that?

Have you heard of the “Rule of 3”?

The rule of 3 says:

You can survive 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter, 3 weeks without food, but only 3 days without water.

We’ve got the food covered, but the rule of 3 shows water is actually more important in a survival situation. (The aftermath of Cyclone Pam hitting in Vanuatu with some Islanders forced to drink sea water was a brutal reminder of this rule). We’ve now got back in stock a supply of what we believe are the most effective yet versatile water filters and purifiers available. And so we thought you might be interested in hearing about what makes them so useful…

Gravity Water Filters

>>> These are gravity water filters.

Gravity Water Filters

They filter water without using electricity, making them reliable for use during all sorts of emergencies such as storms, power failures, solar flares, and EMP attacks. And of course any natural disasters that may damage your town water supply such as earthquakes. Plus they offer a level of protection from any water borne viral outbreaks as has happened on occasion here in various towns around the country. Gravity filtration has been used by relief organizations such as UNICEF, the Peace Corps, Red Cross Societies Internationally, missionaries and relief workers throughout the world. Untreated water from stagnant ponds, rivers, lakes, streams, bores and wells all become drinkable water sources with one of these on hand.

Great for everyday use too

But what we personally really like about these filters is that they are great for everyday use to filter and purify the likes of chlorine and other chemicals from the local town supply. Giving our families clean, pure great tasting water everyday. We love that they can even remove fluoride from town supply water with an added Arsenic/Fluoride filter element too. Great value for money

They also have the benefit of being great value for money. The filter elements are cleanable meaning they don’t have to be replaced as often as many other brands. We can replace the water delivery we used to get at $12.30 a 17L container, for the equivalent of only 12 cents ongoing cost.

Best of Both Worlds

So you get quality healthy drinking water on a daily basis but also have on hand a water purifier for emergency situations, and even camping use too. Get the full details here. These Berkey purification systems are very popular and we regularly run low on stock. So order yours today to be sure you don’t miss out. contact us here or call 0800 888 465 if you have any questions.
