Do you have water Storage?


A couple years back Graham and I purchased our water storage barrels from this location in Phoenix.
http://www.arizonabarrels.com
We got them for $12 per barrel. They were used but easily cleaned up.
This site has them for $18 which is a fraction (seriously) of the cost anywhere else. Maybe they can work out a deal if we get a bunch? I have mine already so if you are interested maybe a group of you can go in on it??

Just a suggestion since we have been Confined to Food Storage for a week. Kind of gets you thinking!

You must have read my mind! We need several of those. Let me know if you order some so we can put an order in together. Thanks!

We have some white ones but need to switch to dark ones- count me in for 4.

I would like to get some.

Let me know about an order too. I'd like to get at least 2.

I know I don't live there anymore, but if you are putting an order together, I want a couple. I can pick them up on one of my many trips to the doctor!

I saw this post I decided I need to get our water and I started looking around on the internet and I found an article shown below: http://www.liquid-stabilized-oxygen.com/WaterStorageSecretsByDaleFerguson.pdf
It says that you should never use, used containers for drinking water. It is fine for flushing or bathing, but not for drinking. Maybe you all knew that, but I didn't. The article had a lot of great tips on how to properly prepare the water and store it.

Who wants to ask Cherise for the info and put together an order? She already has hers...

Tara, that was a really good article. If anyone finds the activated stabilized oxygen bottles(/packets?). Maybe we could split the cost on the 32 oz amount instead of all buying it in 2 oz portions.

Also, we bought some 5 gallon containers through someone in the ward this last year...does anyone know where they got them from? I really like them and like the idea of smaller storage for the drinking water. maybe a 55 gallon would still be good to have for the flushing toilets and bathing.

Nicole, why do you want the dark containers vs the white ones?
