Default Stocking up for SHTF. Dehydrated Water.

I've been stocking up on some ammo, medical supplies, and some dehydrated food. Plus a couple generators and some fuel. Not a survivalist but just want to be prepared for a major disaster or if, God forbid, SHTF.

I just ordered some dehydrated water today. They claim that all you have to add is water. It should be here early next week because I paid a little more to get express shipping. I got the gallon size packets thinking they would be the most convenient. They had some smaller packets and also some small drums of it. Does anybody have any real experience with dehydrated water? Please, real experiences only.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on how MUCH water you have to add to get 1gal. of the HYdrated water? ;?

If it's LESS than 1gal., you COULD be o.k.. ;? If it's MORE than 1gal., you'll have to get the SUPER-dehydrated stuff (probably more $'s). ;?

Maybe you could add ICE to the DEhydrated stuff? ;? I have about 8,000lbs. of ice that I have stored for the SHTF days, and I keep it cold with 10,000lbs. of ICE!

As long as you have PLENTY of water to make the water, you'll be around longer than those that don't have the "source" you found!

You got plenty of CONTAINERS for the "excess"?

Why did you get express shipping?

Do you think something is about to happen?

Express shipping is a good idea for dehydrated water,
If it gets too hot in the UPS truck it could evaporate,
whith the express they probably use a cool pack to keep that from happening.

I've gone the same route but found that the express shipping on the water to hydrate the dehydrated water is rather steep.

Anyway around this? Seems like a scam to me.

Shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with a powdered air distributor. Great prices, and free shipping.

It's the solution to " Global Warming " haven't you heard?

Powdered Water just add....
Known as Dry water, it was originally discovered in 1968 then forgotten about, in 2006 it was rediscovered and a group of UK scientists decided to find a use for it. "Hopefully, we may see ´dry water´ making waves in the future."


It has powerful ability to soak up gases
making it an ideal candidate for research into ways to adsorb out of the atmosphere and store greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. In time the technology may be applied to other liquids such as oil.

´Dry Water´ is actually tiny droplets of of water coated in modified silica (sand). Water molecules makes up 95 per cent of the powdered water and the silica stops the droplets from combining and creating regular liquid water.

I had a severe vertigo a while back and they thought maybe I was over hydrated. The prescribed dehydrated water and it seems to be working - I haven't had an attack since.

I am not sure about long term storage though. I think it has to be nitrogen or vacuum packed

IF it's the hydro I think you're talking about, well then, I'm stocked and loaded but still need to stop off at the store for ice-cream and beer.

Yes but, they really don't honor it.

Does anyone have experience using the dehydrated water with a boat? I'm thinking of using a couple of funnels to route the dehydrated water toward the propeller then I could drive my boat around town on roads while still on a trailer. Or spill it off the bow and I would create my own waterway wherever I might be. Yea, that's it, kind of like IceMan, but a boat bringing it's own water.
