You can use bleach - which I do have at home - Add 16 drops of bleach per gallon of water, stir and let stand for 30 minutes. Or you can boil the water for 5 minutes and let it cool before drinking. I also have a stove and propane tank/bbq if electricity isnt working.

I have two purifier kits. The first in my camping kit and the second one in my truck kit. It's not the fastest but it sure beats dirty water. I also have a couple cases of bottled water left over from various events. More is better.
