Bathtub Liner Provides Safe Emergency Drinking Water

The weather may be beautiful today, but extreme weather and natural disasters can come upon us quickly and unexpectedly. That's why it's important to have a supply of safe drinking water available during emergencies.  The other day, I came across a disposable plastic bladder designed to fit in a bathtub that guarantees you’ll have up to 100 gallons of clean drinking water should your usual water supply be interrupted for any reason.   The only catch is … you need one of these before disaster strikes. 

It's called a waterBob.  To fill it with fresh water, remove the cap and screw on the fill sock.  Slip the opposite end over the tub spout and turn on the water. Depending on your water pressure, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to fill the bladder.

When it's time to use your reserve water supply, remove the cap, screw on the siphon pump. Squeeze it a few times to start the flow and collect as much water as you need. The bladder is rated to keep water safe and drinkable for up to 4 weeks.

That's a pretty great idea, isn't it? But you do have to get one of these ahead of time. You can't wait until an emergency strikes. So if there is a water emergency, you can either go out and buy your water a gallon at a time if you can find it, or you can have 100 gallons of drinking water at almost no cost.
