How many ounces of water in each packet? How many ounces of H2O are in each packet? Yes, it would make sense to keep in your go-bag, or even in your trunk where repeated heating and freezing would cause most water bottles to burst, but it would be nice to know how many ounces each packet holds. thanks.
All 12 packets combined totals only 1.5 quart, or about 1/3 of a 1 gallon. FEMA recommends a MINIMUM of 1 whole gallon per adult per day. More, in hot or strenuous situations. No, you would not be in good shape after trying to make 1.5 quart last you for 3 days. At best you would be severely dehydrated. I'm puzzled why anyone would buy this product when every supermarket and dollar store sells reuseable jugs of water with a 2 year shelf life for around $1 a gallon, versus $9 for 1.5 quarts. To buy enough Datrex for FEMA's gallon-per-day recommendation, you'd have to buy 9 packets, for $81.
