raptor,

Could you post a pic of what this modern canned water looks like? I've never seen that before.

I keep four, 7 gallon Aquatainers filled in the basement, and rotate the water out every 6 months. Also have a couple bottles of bleach for any purification issues.

My water heater, I believe has 38 some gallons in it. I would like to find some additional 55 gallon or larger storage containers for water but am holding off till I move into a house that I own. A plus would be to find a house with a pool, but I'm really looking for a place with a wood burning fireplace, basement, and garage. Pool would a bonus for non-potable water storage.

I hear the water beds have anti-fungus chemicals in them that would be hazardous to your health if consumed.

All it is is a 12 oz soft drink can with "DRINKING WATER" in black printed on it. It is simply a bare aluminum can without the soft drink logo. When you turn it over it shows the lot and canning date.

I have seen some that say bottled by Pepsi, Coke, Budwieser, miller coors, etc. each have slightly different variation of color and printing. For instance the Pepsi cans have slightly carbonated water.

I avoided posting a picture since the can has the bottler name on it. I thought it was unfair to them for any negative PR since they donated the goods and it was meant for immediate consumption.

Ahh thanks, I couldn't picture it before. Reminds me, I had bought a 12 pack of Chinese Beer, Sin Tao maybe, that was on sale for really cheap. Must've been really old as it too had that dirt flavor.

hey thnx! now i should add, we dont have canned water but we do have water in plastic bags, also juice in plastic bags... i have never seen the expiry date on any but i will post as soon as i get one in my hands.

the water in a plastic bag is awesome because its very very cheap, but as you can imagine a little hard to handle.

*edited once to add pics of the plastic bag

The short filled cans were bad. I'm guessing those would be the carbonated ones. When soda really goes bad ( not just optimum taste) it would turn to a vinegary , nasty smelling liquid and leak out of the cans. The caramel and fruit juices would turn the cardboard cases black , but since there is none in the emergency drinking water , that might not occur. I don't remember if the water canned after the Northridge quake by Coke was carbonated or not and after 23 years the two cans I kept as mementos would most certainly have lost their carbonation . I'm not sure where all that memorabilia from my younger years is stashed away. But I'm sure my kids will find it after I'm gone . :clownshoes: I don't believe any of those emergency canned waters would be good past a few months. I definitely would not keep them in your preps. That stuff is solely for disaster type emergency where there is a extreme need to quickly get water to a population in need by companies with an incredible capacity to supply. I think Coke of L.A. had three can lines in 94 that produced about 23,000 cans per hour.

Thanks. I've drank some rancid water but not from one of the survive 6-packs. Love the taste tests people share. Somewhere, I have a bottle of Little Kings Cream Ale (Cincy) and a can of Black Label from 1979, plus, one of the first MRE's I was ever issued (Beans w/ Frankfurters) I have been saving for just this reason. I think I am going to wait until 2019 so that the beverages will be 40 years old. The MRE should be fine though...

I had a gallon of water from the dollar store in my car trunk for 8 years.
Seemed fine when we drank it.
Those cans are intended for immediate emergency use, I would think they wouldn't last nearly 8 years.

Someone can correct me if I was told wrong, but a professor always claimed that cans will leach just as much or more BPA than old school plastic bottles.

Something to think about if consumer massive amounts of canned goods, including crappy water

If you're talking about in everyday life, Which do you think is worse for you? Leached BPA's or the soda pop ? :rofl: . If it's a SHTF and you have no drinking water are you going to tell that nice red cross representative , thanks no I'm afraid of the BPA's in that canned water. I'll just sit here and dehydrate to death .

And this, boys and girls, is yet another reason why I store grain alcohol.

<--- Happiest dead guy in the apocalypse :lol:

I was going to add this to a previous post but since I'm rambling here :crazy: . If you have soda in your preps, you do know that diet soda's have a shelf life of 90 days from time of manufacture ( optimum taste) 10 months for regular soda's. Except for any soda in PET containers , which have only 90 days. Most sodas have a best by date ( lid, neck or bottom of can ) A few still use Roman calendar (PITA ) Any soda , can or PET, if it's soft ( you can squeeze it) It's at best flat or worst , that stinky stuff Raptor posted about or it might be even hazardous to your health. Also heat speeds up the life of soda. Leave a case out in 90's degree sunlight for an hour and whatever hasn't exploded probably won't taste too good

ETA Oh yea also move any cases from time to time. When the stuff isn't moved for months at a time the acids in the soda tend to eat through the cans

hahaha yes I agree, but if I have a choice, I'll store water somehow else to avoid estrogenic compounds as I am trying to avoid dysentery and malaria

Buy big containers and fill them with tap water. Every 3 months empty and refill.

No more need to buy expensive tap water

Money saved and you will now survive another week when the zombies come

thank me later :)
