Water is an essential element to consider when preparing your long-term emergency preparedness storage. Without access to clean drinking water, your chances of survival greatly diminish.

Although many people store all of their water supply in large 55-gallon water barrels, it can become a bit inconvenient if the barrel ever needs to be transported. When filled, a container of that size can become extremely difficult, if not impossible, to move. These portable storage containers have been designed to simplify your emergency water solution!

These 5-gallon water jugs are safe to use. They’re made from food-grade plastic that is also BPA-free. The dark blue plastic limits the amount of light coming in through the container, thereby reducing the potential of any algae from growing.

You can fill each container with potable tap water and store them for five years. After that time, it’s recommended that you refresh your jugs with freshwater or treat the existing water to improve the flavor and remove any potential impurities.

With these portable 5-gallon water storage jugs, you no longer have to worry about evacuating or traveling long-distance without a backup of water storage! Get yours today!
