Water

Storing water is critical to our future safety.  There are a few ways to store it, this is our way:

liter bottles: we take liter bottles of soda, clean them, fill them with tap water, date them, and put them in a storage bin so if any of them leak it will be contained.  Once a year they are completely changed out and re-dated.

55 gallon drum and 7 gallon containers: outside we have placed a 55 gallon drum (more on the way) for misc. water needs, and 7 gallon containers for additional water needs. All this water is potable as it's cleaned frequently and bleach is inside the drums (1/2 cup).
