You are assuming correctly. I remember my 4th grade teacher making the whole class giggle when she explained what happens when you “assume”. Anyway, This would be an shtf or emergency situation to use as drinking water, otherwise using as gray water would be no big deal. I was looking for a better answer but looks like there is not just one answer. a lot would depend on which chemicals were used and the concentration levels.

Thanks trex, I’ll check out those links. I was just being paranoid and trying to say that pool water would be my last choice for a water source not that I’d tell people to not use it if that’s all you have.

The one thing I do know for sure about the black Berkey filters is that they aren’t just filled with activated charcoal like some filters (like the Brita filters.) Here is part of a FAQ I found on the filters:

http://www.bigberkeywaterfilters.com/he … urces/faq/

What are the Black Berkey elements made out of and how do they work?

So while it’s probably safe to drink pool water filtered by a black Berkey filter, since it’s not listed I’m not willing to risk it in all but the worst circumstances. I’ve got access to a river and other water sources that aren’t treated at all that I do trust the black Berkey filters to work with.

But if the pool water is your only source then you have to weigh the risks unless someone can find information that it will remove the algicides, or that there is another filter that says it definitely will remove them.

Well, I was making the assumption that the inquiry was discussing using pool water in an emergency, and I guess I am to be faulted for making an assumption…

That said, I have some basic chemistry background (on par with a year of normal college chemistry) and some dealings with public policy. Based on the fact that these algaecides are approved to use in pools and that most pools get drained into the environment, the chemicals are not likely to be too dangerous.

I did a bit more research, and found this:
http://www.poolproducts.com/blog/pet-po … icals-pets

Algaecides, Antifreeze and clarifiers are not considered harmful when they are properly diluted in the pool water. When they are not diluted or broken down into the water they are corrosive and dangerous.

The article is discussing pet safety around pools, and while they warn several times about the chlorine, this is saying that algaecides are not dangerous in moderate amounts. OTOH, if you are drinking out of a pool for several days, you are ingesting a lot of this water.
Hmmm.
There is a good resource (for a lot of stuff about water) here:
https://omegamanjournal.wordpress.com/
you can see his qualifications here:
https://omegamanjournal.wordpress.com/2 … ink-about/
(Note the HTTPS in his address – this guy seems “kinda serious”)

The author specifically addresses pool water here:
https://omegamanjournal.wordpress.com/2 … ing-water/
and there are links from that article to several other of his articles.
If you plan to use pool water as a primary back up, I would recommend reading all of the linked articles too. (Frankly, I plan to read all of them, just because water is such an important subject.)

What are the Black Berkey elements made out of and how do they work?

Without getting too complex, several methodologies are utilized by the Black Berkey purification elements. The elements are composed of a formulation of more than a half dozen different media types constructed into a very fine matrix creating millions of micro-fine pores. The pores are so small that pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, sediment and sedimentary minerals are not able to pass through them. The media formulation both “absorbs” some contaminates and “adsorbs” other contaminates. Next, heavy metals ions (mineral molecules) are extracted through an Ion exchange process where they are essentially electrically bonded to the media. Finally, our filter elements are designed such that each water molecule can take several minutes to pass through the filter elements whereas these molecules passing through other filtration systems pass through those filters in literally microseconds. The longer the water molecules are in contact with any media, the greater the removal of the various contaminates.

For flushing or washing, any charcoal filter will suffice. For drinking also, if it is a good quality charcoal filter. If the pool was recently filled and treated, you could drink it straight, although that isn’t the most healthy thing in the long run. By “day thirty” you will be dealing with a lot more contamination. Do you have a strategy for replenishing it? If you are collecting dew/rain from the roof, all you need is a good sub-micron ceramic or hollow fiber membrane filter like the ones used in the Berkey system (those aren’t the only choice, just an example).

What about swimming pool water? is there a good filter for it? What information I have found is all over the map. Everything from it normally has too much chemical to be removed easily to you could almost drink it straight. When the day comes my main plan is to use the pool water for the toilets and maybe as wash water and such. But have been trying to get some reliable info to use as potable water. Anybody have an opinion?

I don’t think she even thinks about the water stopping to her house.
Anyway, I motioned to the bleach in the grocery bag and told her I don’t use for laundry, but add a few drops to my water when I refill it…and she said…EWWWW!!
Oh, yes she did!!!

We have a supply of water stored in 55 gallon barrels. After disinfecting the inside of the barrels and flushing the bleach out, I set them in place on a north facing wall and fill them with water. I add 1/3 cup liquid bleach and tighten the cap. Hubby throws tarps over them and ties them off. Hopefully the tarps will hide the barrels from view and keep them shaded. We also did this in 1999 for the – then – computer scare of 2000. I’ve forgotten what they called it now, but, six years later when we emptied the barrels we were surprised to see that the water was absolutely crystal clear.

Bleach goes neutral in about 3 months. Three drops of bleach supposedly disinfects a gallon of water. Drinking bleach? Are you on a central water system? Then you drink a form of bleach everyday. I would NOT try using bleach in stored water. If you are trying to store drinking water, filter and disinfect before drinking, not in storage.

To have bleach in your preps buy dry bleach in tablets. It will last a year or more.” Evolve” is one brand. Not drinkable though as scented. Do not use scented bleach to disinfect water. Instead be safe and buy water purification tablets.

So ive heard diffrent opinions on using bleach to store your water in one of those 55 gal blue drums is either ok or a bad idea. So im a little confused is bleach safe to drink when diluted heavilly or no? Also how long can i store one of those drums in my garage off the floor with bleach in it. Im in southern az so it gets very hot but theres no light in my garage unless i open the door.
Thanks guys.

Isn’t this the same filter technology the ProPur Big uses, except their filter is 7″ instead of 4″? Has anyone here used the ProPur Big?

I believe Propur’s is 7 inches high and 2.75 inches diameter.

The other is 4 inches by 4 inches.

This is what I got. I got two of them. I tested them to make sure that the red dye did not get through to the filtered water.

What really makes me angry about Berkey is they have Zero Honor or Integrity. I called them about the red dye test failure and talked to several people and they said I was nuts that no filter could pass that test. I even took some pictures of the test.

Now, Berkey says they invented the red dye test. Liars liars pants on fire. I will never buy their products.

Not sure where it was invented or who came up with it but I saw a video by another prepper doing it years ago.

I keep a bottle of red dye with each of my filtration systems just so after I put it together, I can test it. If anyone is using a filtration system I recommend testing it with red dye at least after you change the filters. If it isn’t removing the dye, you could die or come seriously sick in SHTF.

I don’t know much about the lifesaver, but what I’ve read, it doesn’t do anything with heavy metals, unless I missed it.

I have a big berky, one filter is good for 3,000 gallons of water and does everything the lifesaver does plus heavy metals, etc..

I also have an alexapure pro, one filter is good for 5,000 gallons of water and does the heavy metal thing also plus toxic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc..

I have 3 extra filters for each one of the above plus the one that came with them, for a total of 32,000 gallons of water.

yep….The Big Berky kills it IMHO…..We’ve been using ours for about 2 years now daily in the house. In short, it’s amazing….Extremely low maintenance. I’m only running it with 2 big blacks and fluoride filters(can expand to 4) I’ve replaced my fluoride filters only once(probably early) cleaned the blacks 2 times, and the upper and lower more frequently even though it most likely doesn’t need it as often as I do….

With just the 2 filters we’re almost never out of water…If we notice a slower pressure we just pull the faucet/hose sprayer right from the sink and it reaches the top tank on the kitchen counter even on the stand and fill it for about 3-4 min to top it off…pressure is high again within about 20-30 min…..This is for 2 adults and 1 2yr old and 2 small pets with heavy water drinking habits.

This is pretty much our setup without the water level indicator(I hear that’s a leak point but don’t really know)…

I really cant stress enough if you can have it where your faucet reaches the top so you don’t have to do the “Bucket brigade” to fill it each time…makes life O SO EASY. The stand is a huge addition too as I can even get my Keurig water reservoir under the spicket to fill my coffee up every other day. I also store my drinking cup under the Berkey…(It’s stupid to wash a glass after a single drink of water IMHO)
Image
Image

Then we have the Katadyn that’s as portable as it gets really for as solid as it is….

With a single portable filter good for 71 years supply of water(or 23 years for a family of 3), and being surrounded by 3 man made lakes(Duck ponds really) within 1 mile, and 150 gal of stored water, I think were not doing to bad for in the middle of a city…..(and then there’s the 2 gajillion-billion-million swimming pools here in southern CA that are great backups for anything short of a Nuclear fallout)

(review here)
https://offgridsurvival.com/katadynpocketmicrofilterreview/

I honestly think I’m as good as I’m going to try for in this location…If my water needs aren’t met with these preps in whatever hits, if ever, the survival issue at stake would be dyer/life-ending and wouldn’t be from a shortage of food or water…

IIRC, the Berkey Black filters remove 95+% of lead. The PF2 filters are for removing Arsenic and Fluoridation, and I’m pretty sure it further reduces heavy metals, but the black filters do a good job all by themselves. Oops, my bad, looks like the black filters do an amazing job by themselves on lead:

http://www.bigberkeywaterfilters.com/bl … gory/lead/

The Big Berkey range of drinking water filters fitted with Black Berkey filters can reduce lead and other heavy metals by 99.9%+, and can also remove trihalomethanes and many other drinking water contaminants to ensure your family’s safety.
