What is the Best Way to Store Water for an Emergency?

Water storage is important if you want to be prepared for any emergency situation; flood, power outage, blizzard, etc. Water storage containers can be purchased at many different retailers and come in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials. They are also very reasonably priced. You can choose from plastic or glass water storage containers of various shapes and sizes, and they will keep your water clean and safe for drinking no matter how long it needs to be stored.

Water storage systems are ideal for emergency preparedness planning.

The best way to store water is to buy a water storage system that is designed specifically for storing water. These systems are usually made of plastic, stainless steel or glass and can be used in conjunction with chemical purification, mechanical purification, or electronic purification methods. Or, they can be sealed and stored if a non-BPA plastic container like Heaven’s Harvest water storage container, the Waterbrick.

Water storage systems come in various sizes and costs and can be used for storing water in different situations.

The size of the system you need depends on how much water you want to store. If your household uses more than 500 gallons of water per week, then a larger storage tank may be necessary. However, if you are using less than 100 gallons per month, a smaller container will suffice. Emergency situations, such as blackouts, water shortages, and weather have many families reconsidering their water storage needs. In these cases, long term containers such as the 3-gallon stackable solutions from Heaven’s Harvest makes the most sense.

The cost of the system depends on how much water you want to store. The more water that needs to be stored will mean higher costs due to increased installation fees and materials such as concrete or metal tanks that help protect against contamination from dust or other elements found outside your home's walls/floors/ceilings (such as dirt or insects). Heaven’s Harvest water storage system allows you to store as much or as little as you needat an affordable price. Water stored in a Heaven’s Harvest Waterbrick will have a shelf life of 6 months. When filling the container, write the date on the outside and store in a cool, dark place.

Not all water storage systems are created equal.

The best way to store your water depends on what you expect it to be used for and how much space you have available. For example, if you want to store large quantities of water for use in emergencies such as floods or storms, you may need a large container that can hold over 100 gallons of water at once. If you only need enough drinking water for the next few weeks or months, however—for example after an earthquake or wildfire—you won't need anything bigger than a 5-gallon jug. The Heaven’s Harvest water storage bricks hold 3 gallons each and can be stacked to increase quantities as required.Storing water in smaller containers is not only easier to transport, but also keeps bacteria from infecting your entire source; unlike a large cistern which must be accessed each time water is needed, making the water storage susceptible to contamination.

Systems that require refilling and cleaning need periodic care.

When you store water in a tank, it can become a health hazard if the system isn't properly maintained. The water might be contaminated with bacteria or other harmful substances. Also, when you're filling up your tank, it's possible that some of the material in the water may leak into the bottom of your container. To avoid this problem, keep an eye on how much liquid is left in your reservoir. If anything looks unsanitary inside your tank—visible particles floating, green or black growth on the sides of the vessel—take samples for testing before using!

When storing water in a Heaven’s Harvest brick container, it should be used within 6 months and restocked (unless you have filled with commercially bottled water or water preserver) Fill the container to the top with regular tap water. If you utility company treats your tap water with chlorine, you do not ned to add anything else to the water to keep it clean. However, if you water comes from a well or source not treated with chlorine, add two drops of non-scented liquid household chlorine bleach to each gallon of water.
