Check out this hygienic emergency water storage idea!

WaterBOBWe just saw this amazingly simple water storage idea. It’s perfect for your in-place survival plans.  It’s currently available for around $23.  We reckon it’ll keep your family going for a few days, especially if you use any gray water to flush your toilet.  (Use the water in the toilet tank first, and then top it up with gray water that you’ve used for washing. If you have a large tank, add a brick to reduce the amount of water you need per flush but be careful not to drop or knock the ceramic as it will crack.)

It’s called the WaterBOB. It holds up to 100 gallons of fresh drinking water in virtually any bathtub in the event of an emergency. The waterBOB keeps water fresh and clean for drinking, cooking, washing and flushing. Water stored in an open bathtub, with dirt, soap film and exposure to debris will spoil and become useless. A hurricane, tropical storm, flood or storm surge can interrupt or even contaminate your water supply.

It is during these conditions the waterBOB may be used for temporary water storage. Constructed of heavy duty plastic that is FDA compliant for food storage, the waterBOB keeps water fresh and clean for up to 12 weeks. The waterBOB is very easy to use. Simply lay the liner in any bathtub, attach the fill sock to the faucet and fill the bladder to capacity, which takes approximately 20-40 minutes. A siphon pump is included to easily dispense the water into jugs or pitchers.  According to the manufacturer it fits any standard bathtub
