We strive to be low-key but we believe in taking sensible precautions, and one of those precautions is storing water, because it's so essential to you and your family's survival.
Your body excretes water through sweat and urination and it's crucial to replenish the lost fluids. Dehydration is the medical terminology for losing more water than you take in. Symptoms of dehydration according to the Mayo Clinic are:
Infant or young child
- Dry mouth and tongue
- No tears when crying
- No wet diapers for three hours
- Sunken eyes, cheeks
- Sunken soft spot on top of skull
- Listlessness or irritability
- Extreme thirst
- Less frequent urination
- Dark-colored urine
Water makes up 60 percent of your bodyweight and in children it makes up to 75 percent, so we can see how crucial it is for your family and you to have water stored in the event of an emergency.
According to Healthline the amount of time one can survive without water is dependent on different factors such as:
- environmental conditions
- activity level
- food intake
As a general rule, the body can survive approximately 3 to 4 days to a week without water.
We recommend to all of our customers to store water in the event of an emergency. Please don't put it off. Do it today.
