You got at least three gallons in the back of your toilet. You also got about 20-30 in your water heater. Get showering! Crash

He probably already used it. [:D] I have 30 gal of emergency drinking water around, and I keep thinking that's not enough.

I've been through this a few times when the city water main has broken. That's the reason I started stockpiling water. Everytime I finish a bottle of juice I fill it iwth water and put it in the spare bedroom with my other shtf stuff

Would this qualify as a SHTF scenario for the C-Guy? Noah

Well....tell us about your important appointment and what ya did to get ready. You better get a water stash Computer Guy...water is GOLD when SHTF (ever see that Twilight Zone where gold was worthless but water was priceless-the one where bank robbers put themselves to sleep to wake up in the future so they could spend their gold)

The water heater is kind of useless for running the shower w/o water pressure. If he ran a hose to the spout on the bottom of the WH, he could get (scalding hot) water, but it won't go thru the pipes because there is no pressure to force it through (WHs don't have pumps, they rely on cold water pushing the hot out when the tap is opened.
