    The above link discusses water storage options and if you scroll down the page there is a chart you can reference for chlorinating water depending on the size of your container.

    This is an excellent site. I use the 7 gallon Aqua-Tainers and the blue 55 Gallon drums. BUT...the water treatment doesn't appear to be consistent with FEMA specs @ 16 drops vs the disaster-survival-guide site @ 8 drops per gallon.

    Here's the FEMA document
    https://www.fema.gov/pdf/library/f&web.pdf

    <snip p11 and 12>
    Add 16 drops (1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of water, stir and let
    stand for 30 minutes. The water should have a slight bleach odor. If it
    doesn’t, then repeat the dosage and let stand another 15 minutes. If it still
    does not smell of bleach, discard it and find another source of water.
