For those of us who are paranoid and are uber-prepared for any type of disaster, we carry at least the minimum of one gallon of water per person in our emergency kit. However, when disaster strikes there is no guarantee that recovery will be faster than three days, which leaves the opportunity for many of us to be without water for days. 

The WaterBOB™ is a fresh water containment system used to store up to 100 gallons of potable drinking water in the event supplies become scarce during times of natural or man-made disasters. Water can be stored up to 2 weeks in a controlled environment. 

The WaterBOB can be beneficial in the event of storm/hurricane warnings, severe power outrages, or in any case where one must prepare and remain on alert for several days. Using WaterBOB can ensure that you and your loved ones will be able to have fresh drinking water for several weeks.

Please note: the WaterBOB™ is intended for a one-time use only.
