WaterBOB: Never Be Without Water
in Emergency or Survival Situations


The WaterBOB is a water containment system that holds up to 100 gallons of fresh drinking water in any standard bathtub in the event of an emergency or survival situation. Constructed of heavy duty food grade plastic, 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.

During a hurricane or tropical storm, water main breaks and storm surges can interrupt or even contaminate your water supply. It is during these emergencies, 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 four weeks.

The waterBOB is very easy to use. Simply lay the liner in any standard bathtub, attach the fill sock to the faucet and fill the bladder to capacity, which takes approximately 20 minutes. A siphon pump is included to easily dispense the water into jugs or pitchers. Never wait in line again to buy expensive bottled water! Be prepared with the WaterBOB.

The WaterBOB has to have support on the bottom and all four sides. The dimensions of the container you are using should not be in excess of 32 inches in width and 64 inches in length. Anything larger would create a great deal of stress on the seams of the liner. Just use care, if you choose to use something, other than a bathtub to hold and support the WaterBOB. Filling the WaterBOB is a bit like filling a waterbed mattress. Make sure the liner is not overfilled and that there is no overwhelming stress on the liner material.

Also, make sure that your choice of container is strong enough for the job and that there is nothing on or in the container itself which could cause a tear or puncture. If you have a sump pump in the basement, it would be best to fill it near that area. Then you will have a good place to empty the water if needed.

“I grew up on the Gulf Coast and all I can think about is hurricanes when I see that WaterBOB. Katrina knocked us out for a long time and bottle water is sometimes hard to come by. If that ever happened again I’d rather have the WaterBOB than to face an angry thirsty mob for emergency drinking water at a distribution center.”

Don't Let Your Family Be Without Emergency Drinking Water

When an emergency arises and the power and water are out, it is more than just inconvenient, it can become life threatening.

Every household should have the WaterBOB for temporary water storage during emergency situations and after disaster relief. Purchase a WaterBOB for your family and friends and for every bathroom in your home.

Clean drinking water is a top priority. Be prepared with the WaterBOB!

How To Use

STEP 1: Lay the waterBOB bladder flat in the bathtub with the nozzles (white caps) facing up and near the faucet end of the tub.

STEP 2: Unscrew the nozzle cap that is closest to the faucet and attach the fill sock by turning it clockwise until tight.

STEP 3: Slide the other end of the fill sock over the bathtub faucet and hold it firmly around the faucet with one hand while your other hand turns on the COLD WATER.

STEP 4: Remove the filling sock with a white cap and tighten.

STEP 5: The full waterBOB. Keep the caps sealed tight until you are ready for water.

STEP 6: When you are ready for water, remove the center nozzle cap and thread on the siphon pump by turning in a clockwise motion.

STEP 7: To dispense the water, place a jug or pitcher below water level, insert the hose in the empty container and squeeze the bulb several times to begin the siphon effect.

STEP 8: To stop the water flow, loosen the vent cap located on top of the pump, allowing all remaining water to flow out of the hose. Tighten the vent cap when you are finished.

To keep the water fresh, cover the WaterBOB with towels and close any window treatments to prevent direct sunlight. When fresh water is no longer needed, slit the side of the liner and drain the remaining water. The bladder should be disposed and recycled.

Much thanx bro', with space being a big consideration in an Apt., I think this will be better for me than a 3 or 4 barrel setup.
