Where to buy water: Preparing for Unexpected Emergencies


One of the most essential resources to have on hand is safe drinking water, but in the case of an emergency, what happens when you can’t trust the water that comes out of your faucet? What if your home or business’ pipes freeze? Being able to buy water in bulk becomes necessary for the health of you and those you care about.


Water Treatment Plant Error Contaminates Water


No one wants to be caught unaware when a disaster strikes. From national weather emergencies, like the outbreak of tornadoes across the country in mid-December of 2021 and the winter storms of early 2022, a crisis can reset an individual’s priorities in an instant. And the number one concern that will be on most people’s lists is clean drinking water, which is never a guarantee.


While certain crises like weather phenomena can be predicted, there are still situations some people find themselves unprepared for. The people of Austin, Texas faced such a situation in February, when the city had to issue a boil water notice for the third year in a row due to an operator error at one of its central water treatment plants. The city itself had already distributed thousands of cases of water bottles just days after the advisory was delivered. 


Emergencies take many different forms, but a number of them have the same answers when it comes to offsetting their impacts. One of these answers is access to a large supply of clean, bottled water. If the methods we create to ensure that our tap water is safe can fail because of a mistake, then it’s important for us to be aware of the steps we can take to be ready when a crisis occurs. 



How long can you go without water?

Don't try this at home, but experts say the human body can survive about 2 to 4 days without water. Stay hydrated and keep water supplies stocked at all times so you never have to answer this question yourself.


According to Harvard University’s School of Public Health, not only is drinking enough water each day necessary for organ function and survival, but it also helps to maintain body temperature, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and even improves sleep, mental processes, and mood.


Needless to say, clean water is essential for your health and well-being. It’s better to be overly prepared than unprepared. Winter storms are not the only disasters to be considered. Tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, public health emergencies and others could pose significant threats to people’s ability to access clean water.


How much water should you drink each day to survive?

Because the CDC recommends 1 gallon of water per day per person, every American should be storing between 3-14 gallons of water for emergencies. 


To plan ahead, a family of four should plan to have between 12 gallons of water (3 day supply) and 56 gallons of water (2 weeks supply) available for emergencies. With an Elevate Marketplace membership, you can save over 20% when you order water online.


If you are planning for a large family or providing water for a group, community or team, the numbers can add up unless you order bulk water with extra member savings in the Elevate Marketplace.



Where can you buy pallets of water?

We sell wholesale water bottles in bulk that can be delivered right to your door. We sell clean drinking water in bottles or gallons and ship it by cases, cartons, or pallets of water.


How many cases are in each pallet? It depends on which product you buy, but the pallets usually range from 48 to 84 cases per pallet of water. Some cases are packaged with bottles, and others with gallons of water.


You can save money by buying bulk pallets of water bottles instead of paying high retail prices at the local store near you. Here are some of our popular bulk water products we have available for delivery now:
