As long as the water stays in the dark.... I have had water that has lasted years and is still fine. I have bottled water that is 7 years old and tastes like new.

Although I do have the capability to store over 5000 gal of water, I'm not sure why to store water if I have all these sources available and the wifey distills all our water to drink anyhow.
Store as much as you need to feel comfortable - drinking, bathing, etc.

Consider the possibility that sources may become contaminated - or frozen - or whatever.

How do you purify your water? Distillation? Can you still do that with the power gone? Probably not. So... make sure you have enough to keep you tied over until power comes back on.

It's up to you to decide how much and what quality of water you will need, and how to make it ready to use.
