In the last episode of doomsday preppers we saw a product that is really innovative for survivalists and invaluable in emergency situations such as earthquakes and hurricanes. This product is a water bladder that can be put in a bathtub so that water will stay clean and not leak yet hold a large amount of water.
One such product is the waterBOB emergency drinking water storage bladder. This bladder costs about $29 and can store as much as 100 gallons of emergency water. If ordered from Amazon there’s even free shipping at the time of this article.
Another product is the Watersafe 65 gallon bathtub model. This is a large food grade plastic bladder that is placed in the bathtub first and then filled with potable water. It will store as much water as your standard tub will hold.the cost for this product is around $35.
Finally we have the Aqua pod kit. This simple and safe solution is great for when emergency strikes. It can store up to 65 gallons of fresh water using an ordinary household bath tub.
These water bladders can be helpful in that they don’t leak like a standard bathtub. Even a good bathtub will leak some water over time. With a water bladder in their you will have no leakage and less chance of the water getting dirty. the one drawback to most of these water bladders is that they are a one-time use item. They don’t usually come with a drain that will allow you to easily completely remove all water for them and have them ready for your next emergency situation.
In a hurricane situation or earthquake one of the most important commodities you can have for short-term survival is water. Most people never think of this as we often think we can just run to the store and get bottled water. In an emergency scenario water will be one of the things that’s least available so having a bathtub water bladder would be the ideal item to make sure you and your family are safe during any crisis.
