Use your bathtub for water storage in an emergency
Most people won’t think of using their bathtub for water storage in an emergency but why not? Everyone has some sort of tub in their house so why not use it for your benefit? I was surfing the internet sometime last year and came across the waterBOB. In any emergency situation, drinkable water or potable water becomes the highest priority. I live in an area that is prone to flooding and hurricanes. Reports go out after major storms on the health of the water and if it’s safe to drink. Even as a child I remember filling our bathtubs up with water just in case of an emergency. The pain was always making sure the tub was clean and water stayed in the tub. This is where the waterBOB is a huge win.
- Fits virtually any bathtub
- Holds 100 gallons of fresh drinking water
- Keeps water fresh for up to 12 weeks
- Attaches to faucet, fills in minutes and includes pump to dispense water
- Made of FDA approved food grade materials and is BPA-Free
By using your bathtub for water storage in an emergency, you will ensure you have 100 gallons. It’s recommended in emergency situations that you have 1 gallon of drinking water per person, per day. This would provide a family of 4 25 days worth of drinking water. Often times it’s not unreasonable for an area to go a week without clean water flowing a major storm. Sure you can boil the water, but that requires use of a grill, gas stove, or electricity. Once you boil the water you have to wait for it to cool in order to drink, so this saves a lot of time. It’s always good to have a case of drinking water on hand, but having extra water in reserve is always a plus in my books.
