WaterBOB--As God is my witness, I will never go without water again
Imagine my surprise when I found this on my doorstep on Thursday. A reader had said I was getting one from the company she contacted. My only duty is to blog about it. Of course, my water emergency is over for now even though I don't have hot water.
I worried when I heard I was getting this because I assumed it would be very heavy, too heavy to handle easily. I doubt it weighs 2 lbs. Plus, it is small enough not to gobble up storage for other emergency items.
Cost and shipping was only $29.95. Somehow, I assumed that such a critical piece of equipment would cost more. No, it is very affordable.
Taking only 20 minutes to fill the waterbob would also be an advantage over filling jugs one by one. I would not have to go to the grocery store because I am thirsty and find I had no jugs of potable water. Yes, I did that. Leaning over the neighbor's water hose in the dark and rain to fill jugs and then haul them home would be eliminated. Yes, I did that. Prevailing on your neighbor to deliver them to my back porch has been eliminated, too. I know he would be glad I have this now.
The website clears up a few questions I had. "Won't the continuous exposure to sunlight spoil the water?" Well, I just need to cover the waterbob to keep sun or light from the water. I think a blackout curtain like the ones sold for day sleepers would work. Easy peasy.
This would be just the thing for me, a woman who has 100% disability, limited mobility, lots of pain, older.
Go HERE to the site to learn more. The video starts up immediately and is loud, so turn down your volume.
So, weight, cost and storage space are all much less than I assumed. You can go HERE to see a video and peruse the website.
