What is the shelf life of water??
Does water "go bad"? Or just start to taste wierd?
Is there a risk of a stockpiled water supply being contaminated in some way by the time you might need it?
DH and I are discussing water supply currently and wondered if it might be more efficient just fo find/buy/create a few alternatives for purifying water than to actually physically store the stuff.
NOTE: We are surrounded by lakes, rivers, streams, the ocean, and it also rains A LOT here where we live. I can see that water procurement in places with a desert climate would be a stockpiling situation.
