I can picture people buying them, then getting home and being mad that they were ripped off because there was no water in them! LOL

Yep, that is why I have my own containers and refill them regularly. I do like most of the Reliance water containers. Some are a bit fragile if you are moving them around a lot, but there are a couple of styles that are very durable and a good size for moving them around.

Jumbo-Tainer 7 gallon

There were several local restaurants offering their washed empty food-grade buckets (they had contained ingredients originally) for free to anyone who wanted them. I thought that was a nice touch.

https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2012/04/bottled-water-doesn-t-mean-better/index.htm

The above article discusses some of the problems with bottled water. I am always amazed at the preference for water in bottles as opposed to that which is virtually free from the tap - $346 per year for bottled, compared to 48 cents per year, also according to Consumer Reports.

When you get right down to it, nothing is as critical or as important as potable water....

if you store water in 20 liter containers, you might drop by your local pharmacy and pick up a small 10ml syringe...I got mine free from Walgreens, and use it to add 2ml of Clorox bleach to the containers when I fill them with fresh water at the beginning of hurricane season

at 8 drops per gallon, 5 gallons equals 40 drops
20 drops per milliliter , so 2 ml
