To keep water fresh in a storage tank you can treat each gallon of water by adding 4 to 5 drops of bleach. It's important to choose a bleach brand that contains 4% to 6% sodium hypochlorite, such as Clorox or Purex. For larger quantities, a teaspoon of bleach can disinfect approximately 5 gallons of water. This disinfection process helps eliminate potential contaminants and ensures that the stored water remains suitable for consumption over an extended period.
