Ways to boil water without electricity
The winter storm is hitting Texas pretty hard, here are some tips on how to boil water without electric power.
VICTORIA, Texas – Electric energy and power is still down in Texas, causing many to rely on survival skills.
Since Monday, Feb. 15, Governor Greg Abbot issued a disaster in 254 counties and big cities (such as Austin, Dallas, Houston) have experienced city-wide electricity outages.
Now that the city is going through a boil-water alert, officials have suggested for everyone to boil any public water use for at least 2 minutes before consuming.
This is a mandatory step to prevent bacteria infection for anyone, even those with good immune systems.
Here’s a list of alternate ways to boil water, without electricity :
- BBQ Grill Pit
- Fire Pit
- Gas Stove
- Camp Stove
- Fireplace or Wood Stove
- Solar Cooker
- Rocket Stove
For many Texans, having a BBQ pit is a norm, so using it to boil your water will help.
Don’t hesitate to use old birthday candles lying around or maybe asking your neighbors if they have any old matches to borrow.
