How do you process water in quart jars to keep it for water storage? How long is it good for?

Water is easy to keep in jars. Just wash the jars in hot soapy water. If you have a dishwasher it would be best to wash them in the machine. Then heat water to a rolling boil and place it in the jars and place a new canning lid on the jars. No other processing is necessary. The water will stay safe for years.
