    What is the best non-toxic storage material you can put water in? Is it worth it to get some kind of non-rusting metal instead of plastic?

    Stainless Steel Great but Expensive!

    When our municipal water system went down during hurricane Isabel we used stainless steel, food-grade tanker trailers borrowed from a commercial dairy to make water runs from a neighboring county to keep our hospitals the EOC and county jail supplied with potable water.

    If you could find an affordable used food grade stainless steel tank from a restaurant or food service supply company that would be great. New ones cost about $750 for a 50 gallon size.

    Glass demi-johns from a winemaking place work best. The glass is impermeable, sanitary, and does not leach.
