Can you store them outside covered with a tarp or do they need to be inside? Does temp affect the water?

I ended up storing three barrels in my shop on wood planks. Well water with ten teaspoons of bleach in each. All sealed. I've heard different versions of how long stored water will last. Anyone have good information on this point?
