According to the Datrex website, "5 years shelf life."

Just add water?

Water expires?

  How did you do that? You must be a genius! 

I actually keep a bottle of water in my trunk for emergency. Maybe this is a good idea to keep one in vehicle if you live in a remote area because things like this could happen.

do you have coupon code ?

Green for the deal but I can't possibly understand why someone would want this.  Perhaps if you were making a few dozen kits and just wanted to throw a small packet in there vs a good container.  If its for home storage a 2 liter pop bottle just makes a ton more sense and the material it is made from is ideal for storage.  If in a 24-72 hour hour kit why not use a smaller pop bottle or something along those lines that can be re-used, evaporate liquid from plants and severing many other uses.  Its not like water goes bad if stored in a clean and sealed container.  It can give an off taste if stored for a few years though.

Can we just buy regular water bottles and store them.

  Actually.....
2 Liter bottles will leach chemicals over time.
"Arizona Ice Tea" bottles are made of a type of plastic that is safe.

I keep a Sawyer mini filter in each car and a few around the house. It can make all the emergency water you need.

WalMart has matched the offer price

As for why this option instead of large bottles:
-Meant for long-term storage in harsh conditions
-Easy to divide up among a group of people
-Damage to one does not mean loss of all

Lastly, I agree with the recommendation of a Sawyer mini filters.
A four-pack is on my wish list. I am just waiting for the price to drop.

While I agree that this is a great product, it will not and can not MAKE the water you need. There's such a thing as having an unclean water source, and then there's having NO water at all. That's why it's a good idea to have both!

Now $17.41 at both WalMart and Amazon

  i don't get it - if you're dying of thirst and there's an unopened water bottle - do i really care leached chemicals? just buy a water bottle and store it in your car...you'll be fine. 

Price is now increased. So may be its now expired.
