  • Proper Storage of Water

    When I was in the Marines we would just take 5 gallon water cans to the field with us in bulk. They would sit around in the sun for days and we never thought twice about drinking the water. As I am storing/preparing at my house what do I need to be concerned about with water safety. I have 4 7 gallon food grade water jugs from camping trips. Can I just fill them up and store them in the basement long term? Or after a certain amount of time will I need to rotate it out or filter it? Should I just buy a pallet of bottled water? I could just use a little advice on this issue.

    (FYI) all i have in the way of filtration is a camping/backpacking filtration pump...
