A) USCAV is pretty expensive place to buy from.. I know, I live 4 miles from their headquarters.. They USED to be a good place.

B) Water does not go bad. It can become contaminated in some way, but it does not go bad.

C) Those particular containers have a bad reputation on other boards I am on.


Water is the most important prep. I suggest getting a steri pen of some sort, or some other way to purify "found water", then see what you can do about storage. Honestly, for 10 gallons, just go to wally world and buy two of the filled 5 gallon jugs, set them in the bottom of your closet. Way cheaper. Or a couple of the square blue containers in the camping section. Again cheaper. Fill with tap water. It's fine. After all you drink it every day.
