This is a 3rd time re-order product for me.

It sounds nasty but you deal with it every day in very low doses in commercial kitchens, bathrooms, locker rooms, and pools.

Easy to use and highly recommended for every time you prepare water for storage!

Having dealt with these chemicals for 35+ years in a variety of water treatment applications, it is my considered opinion that there is value to the product, but it really isn't worth the bother and it is incredibly expensive for what you get, and there is a strong element of risk. You will find much more benefit from cheaper and more common treatment methods without worrying whether if what you have is fresh or will work.

The trick to what they are talking about is to kill off the pathogens, and then store the water in such a way that it is not possible to introduce new pathogens. Keep water in an airtight container and out of the sun, and you've prevented it from being recontaminated. It is your water storage method that does this, not this or any other product. Any product that would itself keep your water pathogen-free for 5 years without these storage procedures would be so toxic that you couldn't drink it.

That said, sodium hypocholorite works. It also actually is household bleach (go look at your Clorox bottle), and it really doesn't matter if they put a stabilizer in it or not. Sodium hypo is most stable at 5.25% (household bleach strength). It will be at strength for a year or more if left cool and in the dark and it will be close to that strength for several more years. A half cup of bleach in 55 gals of clean and clear water will do the job. Seal the water and store it. Done! Doing it this way will also keep your water drinkable for 5-10 years.

If this product needs stabilizers in it, it's because their bleach has a shorter shelf life or because they are using it as a marketing gimmick. My concern however, is that stabilizers also add another chemical to what you are drinking.

The basics of water storage are to keep it in water-safe, opaque containers, out of the light, and away from any chemicals (e.g., gasoline, paint, etc.). If you do this, water will typically remain safe for 6 months to a year. It's difficult to predict precisely since many factors, such as temperature and initial impurity levels, can affect the shelf life. So, if you're only storing a few jerry cans of water, simply pour them out and refill every six months. However, if you're going to store larger containers of water, such as a 55-gallon drum, or a SuperTanker, then you will likely want it to last longer than six months.

This concentrate contains proprietary stabilized sodium hypchlorite, NOT ordinary household bleach as the other reviewer suggested. Think of it as bleach that continues to be slowly released over time. Experts recommend replacing normal bleach-treated water within a year. This product pushes that shelf life from 5-10 years. Not bad if you're stocking water for emergency reasons. Do be aware, however, that treating water with bleach of any sort will introduce a chemical smell and taste - can be objectionable to finicky drinkers (such as children).

I would refer skeptics (or any potential purchases) to the company website (waterpreserver dot com). They discuss the testing and certification, and it should help you better understand the benefits of this product. Obviously look around for the best price.

I bought this item to store water long term.
This enough additive for 55 gallons of water.
The FDA claims this product works.
One thing they don't tell you is this product has a expiration date of less than a year.
It will keep your water drinkable for five years but don't buy a bunch of this product unless your going to use it within a year.

My order from Acme Prototype via Amazon arrived today stinking strongly of regular everyday chlorine bleach.

The small bottle is packaged with papers in a small zip-lock baggy which was shipped in a small bubble pack mailer and sent via USPS. Which of course got squished somewhere along the way and the contents of the bottle squeezed out all over.

Looking at the active ingredients on the bottle it's Sodium Hypoclorite at 5.25%. Exact same ingredients and concentration used in everyday household bleach. I could have gone to local drug store and bought a couple of gallons for what I was charged for this, plus shipping.

What an absolute ripoff.

Follow up: Acme Prototype imededately shipped out a replacement order, this time in a cardboard box, and refunded my full purchase price for my troubles. Kudos to them for exemplary customer service.

This "concentrate" preservative is simply 3/4 ounce of household bleach (5.25% Sodium Hypochlorite). Not even a nickel's worth of the high-priced brand.

Oops, almost forgot! It comes with an instruction sheet telling you to mix it with ~ 55 gals of water.

Companies that sell this sort of rip-off display an astonishing contempt for their customers.

I can't speak to the chemistry involved, and perhaps the "pool shock" is worth looking at especially for large quantities of stored water, but I've used this for over 12 years (changing water @5) and the water has been fine. I drank water from the barrels each time I rotated it, and it was like straight out of the tap. Of course the containers and water must be clean when filling.

I stored the water in certified storage barrels, outside in So.Cal, under a tree w/plastic garbage bags draped over the barrels to keep them clean (with plenty of air circ). It is important to store barrel per instructions (out of direct sunlight, on wood blocks not directly on concrete, not in prolonged contact with other materials, not in rain puddles, mud etc). I also used some none certified 4 gal water jugs; half worked fine, but a few sprung leaks and some did not seal air tight. The water in the defective jugs was foul but possibly usable with a good filter. I also stored a few cases of bottled water inside the house (climate controlled); I had problems with leaks and white crud clouding the water. Now, for short term storage, I use heavy plastic O.J. containers with some bleach, and change water every 6 mo.
