Survival Without Water? – Not a Chance! Prepare for Emergencies and Disasters Now!

Last year, I researched and purchased my first pallet of Blue Can Water, convinced that this is the best emergency water for the safety and security of my family, my employees and my community when severe weather or any type of other disaster occurs here in West Palm, Florida. I purchased 3 more pallets for personal and neighborhood use, and opened a business to get this long-lasting solution for potable drinking water out to communities, hospitals, schools and government agencies across the nation.

American Patriot - Respect for Everyone

Folks, this is a very high-quality American product. Water can sit in these cans for up to 50 YEARS! I bought four so far, and will buy more. We used to store water in mil-spec Jerry (NATO) water jugs, but even they grow mildew, and water goes bad. This water stays fresh and clean and will do its job well when called upon.

• Stays Fresh In Heat
• Ability To Double-Stack Pallets

Blue Can’s Aluminum Shelf-Life Exceeds Plastic Bottle Shelf-Life by up to 49 Years!

Blue Can does not utilize plastic because plastic is permeable, which means that gasses and contaminants can pass into the bottle over time. Aluminum, however, is ideal method of storage. It’s durable, rust-proof, recyclable, and it provides a true barrier to outside contaminants, and is easily distributed when needed to thousands of people.

Aluminum cans will never rust and hold up extremely well over time when properly stacked, even in heated temperatures. The inner lining of Blue Can Water is BPA-free. Once you store it, you don’t have to replace anything, unless it is used, for the next five decades.

Whenever it is used in an emergency, Blue Can Emergency Water will taste the same as the day it was made – clean, pure, and refreshing.

Grocery Shopper – Worth the Investment

Reviewed in the U.S. February 2021

Purchased this water products 5 years ago since bottled water has a shelf life of 2 years. With the recent freeze and water system outage Texas experienced, I had to dig into my supplies. Water tasted great and the substantial hardened cardboard cases were great. Thanks. Well worth the extra money.

The cleanest tasting water ever.” – Denise, March 2020

Reviewed in the U.S. January 2018

Could never figure out how to keep water for emergencies without huge plastic containers that aren’t great, plus have to be replaced yearly. This was the perfect solution. Need to get more, but have four to start. Easy to stack and store. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
