Bathtub Water Bladders – Emergency Water Storage for Survivalists

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.

    I have a 500 gallon hottub in my backyard, is there a bladder this size available I could use?

  • Kristen Nevils says:

    I really appreciate this posting for the water bladders. The 2nd product is acutally called MyWatersafe. There is a Watersafe product that does water testing.

    Ive been in bed for 7 days to try out to get rid of it. Have I been laying around much too long?

    Hi, I not too long ago acquired 5 new little guppies for my 10 gallon tank, and I am anxious that it has not correctly cycled. The water has been in the tank and the filter has been on for about 3 days, so the filter had been cleansing the water for 3 days when I place my fish in on the 4th day. I added (the 1st day) a WaterSafe Full Drinking Water Conditioner that additional useful bacteria as well as taken out chloramine, large metals, and chlorine, and that stimulated the fish’s slime coat. It also says that it will NOT alter pH and will support to set up the tank’s biological cycle. I am worried that I have been too rash and purchased my fish too early, before the tank was correctly cycled. I have however to add any salt for this reason, as their tank at the fish store had salt, because I am concerned about the cycle and throwing it off. If any fish professionals could perhaps reply and then hold up with emailing me or something for the up coming couple of weeks so that I can be confident to get my 5 douleur guppies to total health, I would value it really much.
    Oh- I forgot to add that the shells/small rocks at the bottom of the tank have been taken from a preceding tank, nonetheless filled with water, and I suspect that they have some vitamins and minerals or bacteria on them, as they had been taken right from the h2o of another tank, but I am once more not certain on this aspect.

  • Melyssa Maqueda says:

    I observed my betta has problems swimming, and finding to the best of the tank to eat, so I’m treating my betta for swim bladder. What h2o level is best to make feeding/breathing effortless for the betta until he feels better? I want it to be lower enough to support him, but I’m anxious about leaving much too small as well.

    Ive been in bed for 7 days to check out to get rid of it. Have I been laying close to too long? Would acquiring up and shifting aid the discomfort to ease up and the bacteria to come out> How much water do i want to drink to get rid of it. I am on antibiotics but could I have not drunk plenty of water> The bladder is truly achy. Thanks

  • Keith van der Linde says:

    Why do I need to pee sooner when I drink hot water as opposed to cold water? I drink at least 1.5 liters of water everyday and only have to use the washroom a regular amount of times. But if I drink hot water it seems to go straight to my bladder! It can be either tea or just plain warm water.

  • Spelcomputerkopen says:

    About 2 month ago my i had to change my water bladder/pressure tank under house. When I hook it all up everything worked fine. Then about a week ago I noticed the pressure switch cycling fast and there was no water in bladder/pressure tank. Anyone have any idea what would cause this? Could it be the air pressure leaked out of bladder?
    not blatter but pressure tank

  • Ilse Lahti says:

    I live in the country(rural) where we have a water well as our supply source. the cut-in pressure set at the switch is 30 psi and the cut-out is at 60psi…how much air pressure should the bladder have to obtain maximum pump effeciency..the pressue tank is a 30 gal. tank.

  • COMET says:

    Sometimes when I go jogging, I start off with a partially-full bladder and for the first couple of miles feel the urge to void. If I keep running, however, and don’t drink any water for several more miles, this urge always disappears completely, even for a while after I stop running, until I drink more water.
    All the information I’ve found says once fluid is in the bladder it’s on it’s way out of the body. Is there another explanation for my experience?

  • Romeo says:

    I just recently purchased a UTG Tactical Vest. Not really sure why other than it looks cool. I take to the woods for a few days at a time quite often and i would like to buy a water bladder for the back of the vest. Unfortunately i do not know anything about them. The lady who sold it to me at the gun show said it has a pocket in the back for one but i do not know which one or which ones are good ones. Any help will be appreciated

  • JBoi says:

    I get UTI’s often and i completely stopped drinking sodas and such completely like 6 months ago or more. i drink water water and water only. its getting pretty old and i love lemons in my water so i just recently started drinking water with lemons like 3 days ago. this morning i felt a bladder infection coming along. does anyone know if lemons will make my problem worse.

  • Shelby Luvly says:

    Before anyone says “no, don’t be stupid” some animals can reabsorb water from their bladder.

    I thought I had seen somewhere that gerbils can (it would make sense as they are desert dwelling animals) but I can’t find anything from googling it.

  • Michael Keegan says:

    Hey! Does anyone know where to find a water bladder (like in a hydration backpack cyclists use) in a retail store? I only want the bladder and the tube/nozzle, not the backpack, and being without access to a credit card i’m unable to order anything online, so if anyone can give me info on picking one up at a retail store that would be great, thanks!

  • Nicky Ds says:

    I often drink a lot of water, because I’m usually physically active. I was just wondering if drinking what may be considered “too much” water causes the bladder or other organs to become permanently larger. If you can, please cite some scientific sources, thanks.

  • Jack Sparroow says:

    I noticed my betta has trouble swimming, and getting to the top of the tank to eat, so I’m treating my betta for swim bladder. What water level is best to make feeding/breathing easy for the betta till he feels better? I want it to be low enough to help him, but I’m worried about leaving too little as well.

    I know coconut water can help bladder/kidney problems,i have both. How much should i take? bought two 10oz bottles at organic store,but dont think thats enough?

    Think of under a house. You have rows of Stumps. We need to level an area between the stumps to put in an under-house water bladder.
    I know the width and length of the space and I can calculate the distance from the floor (which will be my level reference – normally we assume the base of an area if what is flat.)
    Width = 1.2m
    Length = 5m
    Now we have at our 4 corners..
    1.Near left – 1.2m from floor
    2.Near Right – 1.8m from floor (indicating a fall of .6m over the width of the space)
    3.Far left – .6m from floor (indicating a rise of .6m over length on that side)
    4.Far right – 2.1m from floor (indicating a fall of .3m front to back on that side and fall of 1.5m left to right at the rear.)
    The bladder assembly has a minimum clearance of 800mm which also needs to be taken into consideration.
    While this instance is exaggerated It shows why you can’t find the rectangle and work out the triangles
    Now to make it into a formula I can use in a computer.
