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.Read more ›
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.

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.
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.
