What Every Prepper Ought to Know About Water Storage

Instructional diagram about water storage and what not to store water in

Considering that the average adult human body is 50-65% water, having a plan for storing water should be a critical part of every prepper’s survival strategy. The CDC recommends at least a gallon of water per person per day…and a least a 3-day supply.

You’ll need at least 1/2 gallon per day for drinking, and the rest for cooking and hygiene. So a family of 4 will need to have 12 gallons on hand.

Now before you run down to the grocery store and grab 12 1-gallon jugs of water, keep reading. That might be a fine solution for a predictable threat like a hurricane where you know when it’s coming and how long it will last. But how often do we get to pick the day and time of our challenges?

You’ll need a water storage plan that can last you much longer. This infographic will give you an excellent overview of what you need to know before making your water preps.
