I use both stored water and a basic filter.

I carry one in my primary emergency kit, but Iíve only used it on tap water to test it.

This is very conservative way to add weight to apartments
given the internet wisdom
"Aquariums up to 55 gallons can be placed almost anywhere without much worry at all."


My experience with standard gallons of water is they tend to develop leaks. I've moved to a 55 gallon, food-grade, poly drum and three 7-gallon Aquatainers filled with water, thankfully because I have room for them.

Hi
standard gallons? as in milk jugs?
I've had those leak, in the bathroom and on patio.
Both actual milk jug and distilled water jugs.

This is regular bottled water plastic bottle in 1 gallon size, inside a cardboard box for stacking

Okay, in my case it was standard 1-gallon jugs of water. Hopefully yours are more durable.

I don't know how long you can store water in the bottles that EMP.. Posted. But the bottles are far more durable than the milk jug style containers. The one in that type that is currently wedged between the tool box and bed side in the back of the truck has been there for over 6 months without leaking. The milk jug style does not last very long at all in the back of the pickup.
