  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
  2. 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...

    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...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...

  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm trying to figure out the best place to store emergency supplies in my house; My main problem is the fact that the two most likely natural disasters to hit this area are either flooding or tornadoes, both of which require opposite storage locations. If I store in the basement, floods will...

  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Kind of new to the survivalist group. I was in my local camping store and they had some of those water storage containers that come in 5, 20, 30, and 50 gallon sizes (blue). They also had some 2.5 gallon ones made by Reliance but those leaked on my when I took them camping. My question, since...
