3 Tips for Storing Water

 

Having an ample supply of clean water is a top priority in an emergency. Water is an essential element to survival and a necessary item in an emergency supply kit. Following a disaster, clean drinking water may not be as readily available as you're used to. Your regular water source could be cut-off or compromised through contamination. Prepare yourself and your family now by building a supply of water that will meet your family’s needs during an emergency.

3 Tips for Storing Water:

  1. Store water in approved, water-safe containers that do not contain any BPA.
  2. Use water barrels that are DOT-approved for human consumption. All 15, 30 and 55-gallon containers available in our store meet this requirement.
  3. It is recommended to have 5-year water preservers with sodium hypochlorite when storing water in barrels and large airtight containers, available in our store.
