  • 1000 days?

    • Quality

    Why does this say that it will last for 1000 days when you need 1 gallon per person per day. That would be 500 days, which is still a long time.

    From The Ready Store:

    1 Gallon is recommended for drinking and hygiene, but if you only drink 1/2 gallon (8 cups of water) per day than it would last for 1,000 days. That is why it says Drinking Water Supply of 1,000 days.

    Thanks,

    I came very close to ordering one of these, until I realized there is no way I could get it in my house. Let alone down into my basement. Perfect for people with a walk out basement and french doors. And for me, the 250 gallon tank is to high. What a pity.

This giant tank doesn't actually take up a lot of space when considering how much it holds. The tank weights only 110 lbs without water. However, you'll be able to store over 4,000 pounds of water in a 4' x 4' x 5 1/2' area!

The walls are 1/4" thick and made of high-quality, food-grade plastic. That means that you won't have to worry about chemicals or other contaminants reaching your water supply.
