#MotownMom: Keeping Water when you don’t have any… #urbanliving #WaterCrisis #Detroit

As a mom living in Detroit, I do understand when utilities are hard to come by, especially as a single parent. Water was a key thing for us on a day to day basis and when we didn’t have any by way of the landlord not paying the bill or the pipes freezing, we had to find a way to get it.

As Detroit Water Crisis worsens and obtaining water because harder to come by, we have to keep in mind the safety of keeping water long term.

I found this handy video to help store water and if you want to help people store water, you can easily put this all together just from items at Walmart or even Amazon.com


55-gallon barrels:

* Bung wrench: http://amzn.to/2AVbPPr

* Siphon hose: http://amzn.to/2yTplB4

If it’s a small family or a single person, you can also just buy a container with a hand pump. I’d buy two containers and switch out the containers to fill one and then use the other. That way you have a steady water supply. This is great for an elderly person someone else is helping out to keep clean water in the house or even in their room.

I hope this helps. I’m going to spend 2018 using this channel as a way that I survived as a single mom, especially when we became homeless to survive, including food, bathroom procedures and keeping warm when you have no heat.

Yes, we went through that.

If you want to know other ways to live cheaply or how we survived, just post in the comments and I’ll make a post or create a video.
