Amanda, what is the protocol for using pool water in an emergency? Do you shock it first and then put it through a Berkey (or other filter)? I think I have my water situation in pretty good shape but the neighbor across the road has a pool and it would be good if I knew how to help them best use it. I assume their 1st choice would be using my hand pump getting their water from my well and their 2nd choice would be just taking water from the river running behind their house (always crystal clear….one of the nice things about northern New England), but the pool is there and we should know how to use it.
