Bulk water storage question

Post by Hoss93WW » Mon May 25, 2015 6:32 pm

Hello! I'm researching chemical stabilizer options for 250 gal water tanks. Saw an impressive kit at PrepperFest AZ awhile back but can't find that contact. Hoping to avoid cost of purchasing multiple kits meant for smaller (e.g. 55 gal) tanks. Other than straight Clorox, any suggestions?

You might want to check out pulse pumps or metering pumps to inject chlorine into your system as it's filled. Once treated water should be stable for along time. Stored water will go "flat" in storage and taste can be improved by pouring it back and forth between glasses to add some air back into it before drinking. A small dose of salt can also improve the flavor.

Here's a link to an example of the pumps I'm referring to http://www.amazon.com/Metering-Pumps-St ... 7H32JWAAWJ
