Stackable water containers enable you to store an adequate water supply while still saving floor space for other emergency supplies! Storing emergency water just got a little bit easier! Water is the most important element of survival, yet if you are storing water in leftover milk containers around your house it has some integrity issues. Those jugs are thin, flimsy, and easily pierced which makes it a mess and impractical to store for a natural disaster situation.
This 5-gallon water container is made from a 100% food-grade plastic that's BPA free and is a thick 90 mils UN rated container meaning they will hold up during an emergency. The opaque material prevents bacterial growth so you won't need to scrub the container every month in order to retain a clean water supply. Because they are stackable, these water containers don't take up a lot of floor space, giving you room for other emergency supplies.
The average recommended water amount per person falls into three different categories. Those categories are Drinking Water, Cleaning and Hygiene, and Cooking. The Institute of Medicine advised that men should consume roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) and women should consume 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of water per day. For cleaning and hygiene, it's recommended to have 2 cups or 16 oz for one day. For water used for cooking, it can vary on how much water is used if you have Freeze Dried, Dehydrated or Tsogo. To make things simple, we recommend having 4 Cups or 32 oz worth of water for cooking.
PLEASE NOTE: To avoid leaking, tighten cap well. The vast majority are able to do so by hand. For those that are not able to fasten the cap tight enough by hand, we recommend using channel locks and Teflon Tape as needed. .
