Stocking an emergency water supply is something everyone should do-regardless of their situation. Natural disasters can disrupt water supply, contamination can occur with chemical or biological hazard leaks, and cold weather can cause pipes to freeze and burst. Bottled water is definitely easy to come by when conditions are favorable, but it has a relatively short shelf life. Canning water is a great method to preserve water, and there’s an easy-to-follow tutorial on Loaves and Dishes that shows us how to do it ourselves!
Canned water not only lasts a lot longer than plastic-bottled water (a year or more!!) it tastes a lot better too. You won’t have the plastic taste that comes along with bottled water that’s stored for a while, plus you have control over the water source. With just sealable jars and freshly boiled water, you can have plenty of water stored up to get your family through a tough situation.
