Short, illustrated instructions from the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies on how to prepare drinking water in the home using simple methods (disinfection, sedimentation and filtration).
The brochure first of all provides information about the criteria for testing the water quality. It stresses the importance of drinking water treatment and of storing water hygienically and then describes the individual treatment methods. These are written largely in the form of pictograms so that the treatment methods are also understandable for the illiterate.
