    You can shake it and leave it to get air for a bit before use, to improve flavour.
    I have safely drunk water from the boot of a car that was open over a year before, just taste is nasty but if its all you have its great.
    all water is over 11million years old after all...

    The only thing I’d add to this is... don’t drink direct from the bottle if you intend leaving any water in it for more than a couple of days. Water is cheap so no point in adding risk.

    If you’re boiling it I think it’s safe.

    I use water that has sat over the plots for several months, nought wrong with it!
