How much water should one Store
You need to have at least a water supply for about three days because emergencies come around when you don’t expect them.
You are recommended to store water for about two weeks. Because of how life happens these days, one could wake up, and another horrible pandemic could begin for no reason.
Reasons we need to store water
We need to store water for the following reasons
- To survive
Water is one of the most critical resources that has been given to us on planet earth. It is just as essential as air. The only difference between water and air is that we can survive without water more than we can survive without air. 70% of our body is made out of water. You don’t want to imagine living a complete day without water. That is going to be torture, trust me.
- To drink
We need to store water so we can always have enough to drink. We need to drink half a gallon of water daily. If you don’t drink this high amount of water, you will suffer horrible things like unitary tract infections and dehydration. You can see the importance of storing water already.
- To cook meals
Without having the necessary amounts of water, cooking your meals would be very difficult because water is a significant constituent of food that’s cooked. Without it, the ingredients you have to cook meals would not bond properly.
- To do laundry
No one wants to go to their office without having clothes that are not clean. Irrespective of the type of machines used to do laundry, you always need to make use of water. This is an important reason why we need to store water. To keep our clothes completely clean
- For personal hygiene
If you don’t have enough water to take your bath, brush your teeth, rinse your face and feet after being done with a long run, then there would be a big problem. But when you store water properly, you have more than enough to take good care of yourself and your physical health
Let me talk a bit about how you can store water properly.
How to store Fresh Clean Water
You could store water by using the following ways
- Using containers
You can store water using containers. There are several different containers available in the market. It all depends on the need you have for the water. Containers used for cooking or drinking need to be different from containers used for laundry and personal hygiene.
- Using gallons
You could use gallons to store water; these gallons, just like containers, could be used to store different water for different uses. Make sure you don’t use a container that was used to store things that are not edible for edible water. For example, don’t use a gallon used to save fuel to store water for cooking, drinking, or personal hygiene. That is not good or healthy for you in any way.
- Using tanks
You could make use of tanks to store your water. There are several different tanks. These tanks have different colors, different sizes, and can be used for a lot of different forms of water. The difference between a tank from containers and gallons is that you could store water meant for different things in a tank. But you can’t go that for a gallon in a container. The reason is that a tank has a lot of space, and it is sealed. When you want to make use of your tank stored water, you get a bucket or a pot or a bottle and use your water.
- Using bottles
Bottles are ideal for times when you want to save water specifically for drinking. The reason is that bottles are small, and their size wouldn’t be enough for you to store water for usage on other things.
Now you know the reasons we store water. The reason we can’t correctly store water in buckets is that not all buckets have covers. And if you leave your bucket open with stored water, it would get contaminated in some days.
