2nd Week

Amount needed is 14 gallons per person. This is a two week supply which is the generally accepted amount of time for a city to fix damaged water routes. 7 gallons are for drinking and 7 gallons are for cleaning. Place in 2-liter pop bottles with 4 drops of chlorine in each. Do not store in milk jugs, as they will leak. Do not store water in vinyl containers, such as water beds as these have chemicals, which can cause harm. Also, water purification tables are good, although they often leave a strange taste in the water. Rotate the water in the 2-liter pop bottles every 6 months. (Some families rotate water every General Conference)
