We can all survive several days without food, but we cannot survive long without water. If you have safe drinking water from your tap or well, this isn’t much of a problem. Many businesses have large jugs used in the typical water cooler. There are usually large jugs of water standing by so that an empty jug can be replaced when one becomes empty. These jugs can be purchased at the local grocery store, or they can be professionally delivered by a water distributor. Stored water, if not managed properly, can become a breeding ground for bacteria and other contaminants. Over time, the risk of bacterial growth increases, especially if the storage conditions are not optimal. Another significant concern is the chemical leaching from storage containers. Plastic containers, particularly those not designed for long-term water storage, can release harmful chemicals into the water. These chemicals, over prolonged periods, can be detrimental to health. Environmental factors like temperature and exposure to sunlight can accelerate this process, further compromising the water’s safety. Therefore, understanding and mitigating these risks is essential for anyone relying on stored water.

A few quotes worth remembering:

“Don’t cry because its over; smile because it happened.” ~ Ludwig Jacobowski
“Patience is needed with everyone, but first of all with ourselves.” ~ Saint Francis de Sales
“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” ~ James Dean
