Yes, yes, and yes. We have two gallon glass jugs with spigots that we use for "lite" drinking (such as a small glass). I hate to keep bringing up Smith's but a couple of months ago they had a "Taste of Italy' sale and sold big (1.5 L) bottles of San Pelegrino mineral water and were selling it two for $2. We didn't buy any and most Americans don't drink mineral water = we do, but we waited until the sale was over. San Pelegrino comes in a green glass bottle, very desirable for refilling. But, we waited it out. And then one day Smith's marked them down to 10 cents a bottle. My wife caught it just as they were putting it up and bought 4 cases (12 to a case). She actually pissed another shopper off, but all's fair in love, war and prepping. The plastic bottled water is an emergency back-up. We store it in the basement where it is cool and no sunlight. When we begin filtering water again to fill the glass bottles, the green will keep out the bacteria from growing. In the meantime, while we finish up last year's water, I have about 100 glass bottles siting in the garage for my use. Mineral water does hydrate you (same as beer) I take a quart jar with a handle, squeeze one fresh lemon and fill it up with mineral water. My doctor said it was one of the best things I could drink instead of soda. See, I've been drinking so much mineral water ........Ciao, Bella!
