Getting Water for Survival Life in Some Areas
Judging from the natural conditions in our country, the survival when going to wildlife such as camping, outside the city, or forest must be adjusted, also with a tropical climate that exist in our country.
Here the areas that will be encountered are jungle, swamps, rivers, grassland, mountain, and others. There are some problems that we will face. The problems or dangers exist in nature or objective danger, issues concerning ourselves or hazard subjectively.
One of the most important things to survive is water. There are many ways to get water. You can get it from stone ground. Look for spring soil or rocky. It is easily dissolved so easily formed waterways. If the valley is generally very smooth, look into valley water or drains in the valley wall that put the flow of ships in the area near the granite.
Look outskirts of green grass growing up on the hole. Besides, you can get from soil mix. Look for water in the valley close to the surface of the ground water.
Look for water flowing hole located on the top surface friable soil including river flow but remember this water may be filthy and dangerous. In the beach area, homeland knoll-hill or dig sand water basin to combat saltwater taste Strain the sand. Do not drink sea water because it can lead to dehydration and kidney damage.
Water source that can be directly drunk is rainwater. Although sometimes acidic rainwater in principle rainwater can be drunk directly, just need a way to collect it. To collect rainwater, you can dig a hole and daubed with clay or essentially coated with materials that can hold water such as ponchos, leaf, foil, bark, plastic and others. It’s good after getting the water we cook it first.
The second source is from plants or moss. We can take advantage of the process of respiration of plants to get water. The trick is a twig and leaves with a plastic bag that ends tied. Evaporation of the leaves will cause condensation on the plastic signage inside.
Select the part of healthy leaves and more leaves. In mosses we can directly absorb water on the moss with a material that easily absorbs water like a cloth. The third source is dew. In areas that have extreme climate where very hot during the day and very cold at night, we can hold moisture very much. To get the water we can use the fabric, foam, ponchos, plastic and others. The fourth source is or rattan vines in the forest.
Cut with a knife as high as possible to reach the bottom and cut too close to the ground. Water dripping from the trunk can be accommodated or directly dripped into the mouth. The fifth source is the water being stored in the leaves wide.
Usually after rain or dew in the morning, in the joints of bamboo and the interest pitcher there is water. For water from the bag plant, it should be masked out because there is often a dead insects and smells. The sixth source is to utilize the condensed soil. In this case utilizing soil moisture retained then accommodated into somewhere.
The trick is to dig up the earth with a certain depth and then spread plastic over the hole and then ends detained. Give ballast in the center of the plastic manhole cover until the plastic bit into the hole. Previously, place right in the middle of a container until later ballast water would drip on the container.
Sources of water that can be drunk directly is stagnant water. Although we sometimes doubt it will be clean, in an emergency such as this water can still be used.
The safest way to use the water it is to do filter. Water is dug on the beach or a dry river bed. The water must undergo a continuous process that is to be purified first. The trick is measuring a distance of about 5-7 meters above the high tide to conduct excavations by making a small hole.
The water obtained in this way usually does not contain salt. As a note, fresh water will be located above the salty water in the pits. The water obtained in this way although a bit brackish but is safe for consumption. If the water is too salty, it can be done by adding distance excavation or filtering.
