Have you ever wondered if water jugs go bad? You’re not alone. Many people want to have cleaner, better-tasting water in their homes, but they are still determining if a five-gallon water jug will go bad before they can drink it all. Luckily, water jugs don’t expire. Here’s everything you need to know about five-gallon water jugs:
How Long Does a Five-Gallon Water Jug Last?
When people buy a water dispenser, they have to decide what size water jug they want to get for it. So they wonder if water has a shelf life or will taste good indefinitely once bottled.
Water doesn’t go bad. But it can start to taste stale if it’s left on the shelf for a long time. You should use a five-gallon water jug within six months of getting it. If the water in the bottle gets exposed to air or is kept in a place with no climate control, it may need to be replaced sooner than six months. It should be used within a month if the weather is hot and humid and the water isn’t kept in a cool environment.
How Much Water Do I Need To Get?
There’s no hard and fast answer to that question. Everyone goes through the water at a different rate. Some of the factors that could influence how much water your household needs are:
- How many people are you in your household
- How active the people are in the household
- How much water each person usually drinks
- If pets are also drinking bottled water
Typically a household with just two people in it will go through 3-4 five gallon jugs per month, but your usage could be quite different based on these factors.
The Benefits of Five-Gallon Water Jugs
One of the most significant benefits of five-gallon water jugs is encouraging everyone in the home to drink more water. When plenty of water in a large five-gallon jug is available, it’s more likely that everyone will reach for a glass or fill a bottle with cool refreshing bottled water. Some other benefits are that five-gallon jugs are easy to recycle or return to the company to refill and that bottled water tastes better than tap water.
