The prepper in you is probably already wondering how to include bottled water in your bug out bag. So, we will take a minute and talk about that for you! What if the power went out? How would you get fresh water? What if it’s cloudy outside or there is heavy rain so the sky isn’t clear enough to use solar stills? You could be stuck without any access to safe drinking water until help arrives. That’s where bottled water comes into play! Bottled waters can improve your bug-out bag by giving you an alternative source of drinkable H2O when all other sources are exhausted. A little goes a long way too; one gallon will last four people three days or three weeks at two quarts per

Fast, easy and entertaining.
Bottled water is a must have for any prepper, but if you’re like me and don’t want to buy more plastic bottled water every time your supply runs low, then it’s important that you know the best ways of storing tap or filtered drinking water in order to keep up with all those everyday emergencies we face.
If you know that your water source is going to be contaminated, it might make sense for you to pack an empty container or two and fill them as soon as possible when needed. However if this isn’t a concern of yours, filling up the containers before leaving on trips will help avoid having some nasty smelling plastic in your bag!
The journey from tap to bottle is fraught with danger.
Your packed bag has only one thing missing: filled-up water bottles/containers. You’re not sure what option would work best so here are both pros and cons with each scenario – deciding which one works better for you should depend largely on how concerned about contamination at sources are (if any).
We’re not a problem, we’re the solution.
Pack your clean, dry empty water containers in your Bug Out Bag. Then pack enough bottled water to fill all of the containers. Don’t waste valuable pack space with a plastic bag full of bottles strapped on the outside which is only temporary and not as efficient because it will take up too much room inside; consider packing some sealed bottles for storage instead so that when you need to bug out you have enough time if needed but don’t forget about keeping some extra just in case at home or another location!
Here is the product I recommend for you to get:. This applies not only your Bug Out Bag, but also an Urban Survival or Get Home Bag where you might be away from home and need more water on hand. *Note: Even though this will provide a better solution than bottled water stock that needs rotating occasionally, it won’t last forever so make sure to rotate these supplies periodically too!
