ok I'm a little knew at all of this. My question is about storing water. I have several big orange igloo coolers for drinks. Can I store water drinking water in thoses and if so for how long? Or what is the best way to store drinking water and how long will it keep? We have a well and when the power goes off we have no water. I have been saving water in old gallon mike jugs to flush but wasn't sure of the best way about drinking water. I have four children. Also another crazy question how is the best way to store batteries so you will have enough for emergencies. Last year between the ice and the hurricane we were out of power for a long time with each. I would appreciate any help I could get.
