Default Genius water saving

I've just ordered one. Saves me from filling up all those bottles every few weeks!

At $30 per unit, that's a pretty cost effective way to store tap water.

Thanks for posting this!

I think it is a good idea for those that dont have anything else. In an emergency, this sort of thing could help stop panic buying. Made in/for the US (I guess) market, this is geared for folk that have a long hot summer, and or are prone to flooding.

Good product if marketed in the right place it could mean that more folk are awakened to the need of being self reliant.


nelly.

Already got seeds and growing food so this is a good investment. The more fresh water available the better....

We have two Water-Bobs, one for each bathtub. I figure that's an additional 150 gallons of water or so when we fill them up. Add that to a 40 gallon hot water heater and we should be good for a couple of weeks anyway.

Not pointless at all. This is something to keep on hand for infrastructure interruption events. Gives you a quick large stash of tap water, indoors, but easy to store until you need to deploy it -- just keep it in the bathroom cupboard.

I keep a couple of 5 gallon carboys of water standing to do fishtank water changes anyway. In the event of emergency that's 10 gallons of water for cleaning, at least.

Saying "spend that $30 on some seeds and grow some food" is not addressing the immediate need short term problem of water service interruption. That's something we do every year anyway. Although, 30 bucks is a LOT of seeds.

any extra source of water is never going to be pointless
