Well,that varies by ones access to water.We store a ton of tap water,collect a ton of rainwater,plus have a clean creek on my property with the feeder lake only a mile away and we also have the filtration needed,so luckily water won't be an issue for us.In my introduction, it was said that water is number one. How much should one stock pile and is it better to convert dirty water to clean, store, or have tanks to store rain water?
The more methods you have available to store, get, and/or treat water the better. 3 days without it, and you die. No other prep stockpile has that statistic, so that's why it is number one.In my introduction, it was said that water is number one.

So many people forget this... Im glad this point was brought up because the only thing thats as good as having it, is knowing just where to get it and how to use it!!!Part of being prepared isn't just having stuff stored, but also knowing where or how to acquire the things you can't store.
You don't need to spend thousands for this either. My daughter purchased an above ground pool this summer for her kids and it was on sale for $250, including the filter.Swimming pools offer a large volume of water. If you don't already have one, an above ground pool would serve you with multiple purposes for just a few thousand dolars. For now, while everything is fine, you can cool off in the summer and enjoy family time. When times get bad, you have thousands of gallons of water stored. You just need to make sure you can filter out all the chemicals. This only applies if you are bugging in.
