SPG 005: How to Store Emergency Water Supply in an Apartment

How to Store Emergency Water Supply in an Apartment

Rule of 3’s teach us that you can only survive 3 days without water.  Prepping for locally affected/short recovery threats doesn’t require much water.  However, what if you are trying to prepare for a more extreme threat like a collapse that could have a longer recovery time?  This is especially challenging if you live an apartment where you have a limited amount of storage space.  In that case we must consider how to store emergency water supply in an apartment.

In this week’s episode Magaret has a question about prepping in an apartment but more specifically how to store emergency water supply in an apartment.  Being that I am also an apartment prepper I can definitely relate.  So I wanted to share some ideas that I have used personally and other ideas that I have found from other prepper communities.

  • Use Smaller Soda bottles like 2 liters to take advantage of smaller spaces in your cupboards and other areas like under the bed, the floor of your closet, etc.
  • Purchase Blue Can – Premium Emergency Water to store water in extra small spaces throughout your apartment like under sofas and other furniture
  • Keep collapsible water bottles that you can take with you to gather water from local sources
  • Rent local storage spaces or garages
