Power4Patriots Presents 9 Ways to Store Water in Case of Disaster

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When disaster strikes in the form of a storm such as Sandy, a tornado, an earthquake, a terrorist attack or anything else that could result in power outages and unsafe drinking water, those who are prepared will have the best chance of surviving and thriving until things return to normal. Power4Patriots offers nine ways to keep a safe supply of water handy.

Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 16, 2012

If they absolutely have to, most people can go without food for several weeks. But without clean drinking water, they may not last more than a few days. In an emergency situation in which the purity of the water that comes through pipes has been compromised, people are going to wish they had stockpiled plenty of water for themselves and their families.

Power4Patriots says it’s not enough to merely have an emergency water supply sitting around. It must be stored properly. Below are listed nine ways to store water for a crisis.

  •     Use multiple sizes of containers: The recommendation here is to store enough water for drinking and washing to last a family 30 days. But it shouldn’t all be stored in large containers. Water is heavy and some family members may not be able to safely handle a larger container. It’s also possible that mobility may be necessary, so it’s a good idea to have a variety of sizes for water storage.
  •     Choose food grade barrels: Blue, polyethylene plastic water storage barrels for large quantities are recommended. These types of containers will differentiate one’s water from other items such as fuel, and will lower the risk of water being tainted by toxins.
  •     Keep containers clean: The way to clean water containers is by diluting one teaspoon of bleach in one gallon of water and washing the insides, lids and lips before filling them with water. Water should never be stored in a container that has been used to store other materials.
  •     Label and date containers: A number of different people might be accessing water containers during an emergency, so it’s important to mark the fill date and clarify exactly what is in the container (filtered water, ground water, etc.).
  •     Store water in a proper place: Water containers should be kept out of sunlight, which can promote algae and bacteria growth. Cool, dark places away from chemicals are the best places to keep them. Only airtight lids should be used.
  •     Secure water: Water containers should be stored in areas where they won’t get tipped over or knocked over. It’s best to avoid high places and areas that might be difficult to access following a natural disaster. If looting is a possibility, containers should be hidden and/or locked away.
  •     Avoid freezing: This is something that many people forget about. If the water freezes, not only might it be useless, but it could also break the storage containers.
  •     Use filters: Depending on the circumstances, water may need to be filtered prior to its storage. A plan for filtering possibly contaminated water in an emergency should be in place ahead of time.
  •     Replace water annually: Properly sealed and stored water should last for years, but proper storage can be challenging, especially for large quantities. Once a year, water containers should be emptied and washed before being refilled.
