new question about 55 gallon water barrels : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

I haven't seen this question, before.....when we fill our 55 gallon water barrels with water and purifier of our choice, how are we going to be able to know the solution is well mixed?

Put your bleach / purifier in first and run the hose to fill. The force of the water will mix it.

Food grade water hoses are for sale at Home Depot for about $14.95. It is white with strips. Clerks don't know they have food grade hoses. Read the cardboard label. Has photo of a boat, etc. on it.

If you are using something like iodated water or bleach you don't need to worry about the disinfectant dispersing in the water, that what the "wait xx minutes" is for.
