Why Every Prepper Should Have a Hot Tub

Yes, there’s nothing quite like relaxing in a hot tub on a chilly evening; but your hot tub can also be a source of emergency water during a disaster and when properly treated and or filtered can help save your life.  If your hot tub is roughly 8×8 and fits 6 people; it should hold approximately 500 gallons.  That’s a lot of additional water which can be used for drinking, bathing, etc.

Remember hot tub water should be properly filtered before using .  If your filter/purification device such as the type that backpackers use; can filter out microbial contaminents and your hot tub has not been over treated with chemicals; the water can be drinkable.   Most people will require at least one gallon a day of drinking water so your hot tub as an emegency water supply can be another asset in your preperations package.

    I wish I could afford a hot tub. And as far as stress relief, I’d think that the return on investment would be relatively low. The care. maintenance. and cost for a hot tub could quickly negate the benefit. TBH a water blivet (sp?) used by the .mil for water storage is low cost and low maintenance. As for the ammo savings…I would feel less stressed by having a mobile asset like ammo versus a fixed asset like a hot tub.

    All that aside, if you know someone that’s getting rid of one…
