What are you using for water storage indoors?

I have been reusing empty gallon water jugs. Luckily this time they were in an empty tent. One leaked 3/4 gallon, not ideal. Luckily the floor liner kept it all. Was getting ready to sanitize the tent when I noticed it. Before I would put them in milk crates outside the tent.
Need a better solution. Thank you.

Sunny D orange juice containers. They are a little stouter than water or milk jugs. Plus have a wider opening with a secure screw on top.

Courious about how long you “store” water. And why?

I’m guessing to let chlorine evaporate out?

Use the 5 gallon water jugs like we’re going on your water machine very convenient has a handle stores quite easily pretty heavy duty :ok_hand: or 5 gallon buckets with lids

Mainly to let chlorine gas off. Or I store ro water.

Multiple 5 gallon buckets, but may opt for a 50 gallon drum to premix in. With bubble stones and wave maker…

I use this. Like it for the spout.
I do leave the lid off.

They also have a 10g.

Good old Homers with a lid work for me: I’ll stack up 6 full ones and use as needed.

How long to let 5 gallons sit for chlorine? I usually let a gallon go 24 hours. Curious if it would make a difference. Thank you kindly.

I always allow 24 hours at least in a 5 gal bucket. Twice as long in milk jugs due to surface area of the spout. In fact I dont offgas in jugs anymore.

Makes sense due to the area. I think. Not good at chemistry. Will definitely keep in mind about the milk jugs. Five five gallons would be much easier. 48.55 pounds. Boy a 50 gallon 485.5 pounds. Upstairs in a 108 year house. Seems like a extra tub almost.

Lol, I use similar. I use the Hawaiian Punch gallon jugs. Mostly because I like the handle on top.
