    I'd like to get some input on my plan (or lack thereof) for our water storage. Is it unreasonable to think that I could store at least one month's worth of water for 3 people (me, hubby, and 2 year old DD)? This would be drinking water only. I am planning on getting a good filter/purifier as...

    I have a couple food grade 55 gal barrels that I have cleaned out for drinking water storage. I need some tips/advice on where to store them. I have no place to store them inside, and was wondering if I could store them outside? I heard that you don't want them in direct sunlight, but how...

    Just passing along a thought. I'm using 6" and larger PVC as underground/waterproof storage containers. I'm not a math whiz but would like to know how many feet of 6" pvc would be needed to store 500 gallons of water? Anyone? thanks

    I have a well..which runs into a water softener which gets salt pellets " red out" Then into a tank, water taste very good, However hot water has a smell to it, " magnesium rods in hot water heater" So i have a bunch of empty 2 liters and water storage tanks :-) How would I store this for long...

    My wife and I just had our first child not that long ago. Now it seems like I have about 30 empty gallon jugs of nursery water in the garage. Can I just fill these back up and put them in the basement, or do I have to clean them out with something and put purification tablets in with them? Also...
  10. Food and water
    Hi everyone, been lurking for a while and learning all kinds of great stuff, getting to where I have a few questions for you more seasoned folks on here. My first is about food-grade water storage jugs. I was trolling my local China-Mart and picked up some 6-gallon "bpa-free" food-grade etc...

Im currently stockpiling food and water for myself, Ilive in a small apartment in a large city, I do...

    I just received the latest Cheaper Than Dirt catalog. For all that do not have a water storage system here is a temporary fix. You place the bladder in your bath tub and fill with 100 gallons of water. It is only $20.00. If your water gets cut off you are out of luck but if you have a well and...

    I live along the coast in texas where we only have two seasons, summer (8 months out of the year) and then a mild winter. I am looking at getting some plastic water containers. I am going to add Aerobic Stablized Oxygen to it, but I was wondering if that will be enough. Does anyone else have...

    I've always been a bit dubious about using some of the supermarket's own brand thin bleach products for adding to stored water, because most of their ingredients lists seem to be a bit vague, and seem to suggest "other ingredients". On Asda smart price thin bleach for example - it actually...

    Saw an ad in my local Craigslist for 55 gallon foodgrade plastic barrels for $25 ea. If you buy 15 or more, they'll give you wholesale prices (haven't called them yet, so I don't know what the wholesale price is). Is this a good price? They alo have: 5 gal - $5 15 gal - $15 30 gal - $20 60...

    A recent thread mentioned a lack of water preparedness so I thought I would post a great way of storing water. The best part is that this is a 100% free prep. When you are done with a bottle of laundry bleach immediately fill it up with tap water and use a magic marker to write the month and...

    A while back I stored water in about 50 2 liter pop bottles. I followed directions from somewhere...don't remember at the moment. I know I used about a cap full (from the two liter) of bleach per bottle. I open one the other day and I can smell and taste a bit of bleach. Is this normal and...

    I apologize in advance if this is common knowledge, but I did several searches on this site and couldn't find anything relevant- at least not easily. What's the best kind of container to store drinking water in, and how long will it stay "drinkable?" Is plastic OK? I'm assuming that whatever...
