In the past I've purchased the large plastic containers of water to have on hand for emergencies, but I want to move away from that because 1) it costs money 2) I want to avoid plastics.
I have several large glass containers that formerly held apple juice. I want to use these for storing water, but everything I've read says I should treat the the water with chlorine bleach first. I am on city water and I realize that my water is treated with bleach already, but for some reason this freaks me out.
I found one source which also stated I could can the water. If I did that, I would have to buy gallon canning jars and probably a bigger pot since the pot I normally use for canning isn't big enough. It would be a little costly, but I've been meaning to get a large stockpot anyway. And there is the question of BPA in the lids, so maybe that's no better than a few drops of chlorine bleach?
Just curious what everyone else does for emergency water storage.
