But the stockpilling honey (on the above link) sounds really great!
"The honey that was found in the Egyptian chambers was seen to be still good" ---- WOW!!

I wouldn't even give it a thought. While some stuff could leach into the water from whatever it's stored in, that would be the least of your worries in a scenario where you need emergency water. If you have glass containers, or stainless steel, the water should survive basically forever.
We also have a few gallons of water.
Question: for how long is that water potable?
We buy large water containers every year and I mark their dates on them hugely in black and we will restrict ourselves to using only the current year for drinking purposes...except that we have yet to need to use any of them. Thus I have sealed water going back a few years in our cellar now dedicated to possible burns, fires, etc, only...and still unused. Ed has water up at the Drive Shed for burns, fires, etc, but it's from the well, unprotected so to speak, etc.
I really need some guidance about this. We are currently setting up to set up for emergencies and will probably do it properly within the next six months. To date, it's been a trifle haphazard although with the extra space which we have in the cellar we are set for quite a while with canned tomatoes, canned beans, Habitant pea soup, this and that and quite a lot of it, prompted more by sales and the fact that we are quite far from grocery stores than any organized thought.
