How to Store Water for an Emergency
Featured Pro: Eric Stromer Category: Home Improvement Time: 1:35
ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer. And I think it’s always a good idea to keep water at home in case of an emergency. Learn the best way to store it with this GMC Trade Secret.
Now, to be prepared for any emergency, you should be sure to store at least one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days. Use only food-grade containers for storing water. One-, three- and five-gallon containers made of PETE plastic work best. You can also find large water storage barrels at many supply stores.
A plastic or glass container that previously held food or beverages, such as a three-liter soda or water bottle, can also be used. But keep in mind, plastic milk jugs don’t seal well and get brittle over time, so they should be avoided. Don’t use bottles or jugs that have previously been used to store non-food items like gasoline or cleaners.
Clean your containers with hot, soapy water and then rinse well. Sanitize them with a solution of one teaspoon of bleach mixed into one quart of water. Tap water does not need additional treatment. However, you can take additional precaution by adding eight drops of bleach to each gallon of water.
Clearly label all drinking water containers. Store water in a cool, dark place, away from direct light and heat. Now, because bacteria can build up over time, you should rotate your water supply every six to 12 months.
Water storage is important. Take the time to properly store water in the event of an emergency.
