A simple rundown on how to collect spring water for your family. We do it for our family and you should too!
Collecting spring water is fun and easy
We are so blessed to live in a place that has an abundance of clean fresh water to drink. There are so many places close by that we can go to and fill up our water jugs.
The spring we go to in particular has a few benefits;
- It’s close to my husbands work
- It never runs dry
- There are rarely other people there
- It has a shelter
- I grew up getting my water from this spring so it makes me happy!
How to start collecting fresh spring water
Ask people who have lived in your area for a long time if they know of a spring that you can go to. You would be surprised how many there are if you live in an area that has underground springs running through.
You can use whatever jugs you want to collect your water. Just make sure you can carry it once it’s full!
Don’t be afraid that the water is unsafe. Natural spring water that is set up for people to collect from (like the one I use) is normally tested by the municipality and is deemed safe.
If there is a sign up that says “use at your own risk” then all you need to do is test the water to ensure it’s safety.
You can test the water a few different ways;
- Take it to a water testing facility
- Buy a water testing kit and test it yourself
- Use a filtration system at home for peace of mind
Collecting spring water is a very special thing to us and we are so thankful for it. It’s easy and safe and tastes so good!
