Properly storing water long term for emergency situations is vital in food grade BPA free water containers. Improperly treated water can lead to high bacteria and algae levels that are potentially life-threatening or fatal. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):
You should have at least a three-day supply of water and you should store at least one gallon of water per person per day. A normally active person needs at least one-half gallon of water daily just for drinking. Additionally, in determining adequate quantities, take the following into account:
Individual needs vary, depending on age, physical condition, activity, diet, and climate.
Children, nursing mothers, and ill people need more water.
Very hot temperatures can double the amount of water needed.
A medical emergency might require additional water.
FEMA goes on to explain the how to prepare your own water storage container:
It is recommended you purchase food-grade water storage containers (like WaterBrick containers) from surplus or camping supplies stores to use for water storage. Before filling with water, thoroughly clean the containers with dishwashing soap and water, and rinse completely so there is no residual soap.
