Water in a hut

I have a couple of questions about water that I would like people's views on:

1) Can you drink rain water which has run off a galvanised (zinc plated), corrugated roof?

2) How long will tap water stay safe if kept in a light proof, food grade, plastic container?

Any opinions based on experience or research welcomed.

I would also like to know about water storage. I plan to have a hut on our site very near my house but it's quite an item to carry enough drinking water even over short distances.
I would also like to know if anyone has any ideas and opinions on solar and/or wind up radios. There seem to be quite a few on the market. Has anyone tried them out?
