During these so very dangerous times, I've read that it's advisable to have emergency supplies and to stock up on food and water and my family has taken this to heart. I've gotten the food part of it down, but how do I store drinking water so it'll keep safe to drink? Will I have to buy ready-made bottled water or can I bottle it myself and what would I have to do, if anything, to treat the water to keep it safe over a period of time? We don't have a yard, so a well or barrels for storage are not an option unfortunately.
Filter and Boil, yes, and then bottle in new or sterilized containers with a small amount of hard liquor. This keeps stuff from growing. When you open a container, let it sit for a couple of hours open, and the alcohol will evaporate off.
