Water storage is a bit tricky for most people. Few are fortunate enough to have a well on their property and a means of removing water from it without electricity. But since there are a lot of new preppers out there now, we have decided to put together a helpful guide on how to store water for a short and long term emergency.
In a short term emergency, even if the power goes or you’re experiencing a massive storm, bottled water can be purchased at grocery stores. But there are other ways to have it on hand in case of an emergency and you don’t want to battle anyone at the store. You could just buy a few cases of water beforehand and keep them around, but the plastic bottles will eventually begin to break down and could leech plastic into your drinking water. If you plan to store bottled water for a short term emergency, make sure to drink it every year and replace it before the leaching process can begin.
