My mother probably wishes I didn’t live in LA. I mean, she wants me to be happy, but she worries about what would happen in a natural disaster. She’s not a total 2012’er but I think she would be happier if I were with the family in Australia when the Mayan calendar ends. She’s the kind of person that makes lists and plans and is always prepared.

So I when I saw this, I thought of my Mum, and how she would think it’s a great idea. It’s called the waterBOB and it’s to collect emergency drinking water storage. I’ve lived in a few different places. The kind of places that throw ice storms, tornados, hurricanes, floods, drought and earthquakes at me, so I have heard of filling up the bath tub before. However, I’ve never needed to do it, so I never considered the fact that the water may become contaminated, evaporate or leak down the drain slowly.

waterBOB is an innovative heavy duty food grade FDA approved plastic bladder that fits in any standard bathtub.

“attach the fill sock to the faucet and fill to capacity. In about 20 minutes, you’ll have 100 gallons of clean, safe water for drinking, cooking, washing and flushing that stays fresh for up to 4 weeks. It includes a handy siphon pump for easily dispensing water into jugs, pitchers or pans. It’s definitely a great peace-of-mind solution to have on hand, especially in areas prone to hurricanes, and a cheaper alternative to last minute panic runs to buy expensive bottled water.”

The Guarding™ wave is about being prepared. We are seeing these kind of survivalist products really surge lately. I mean, there are so many shows about survivalists or people prepping for disasters on TV lately and I even heard the term “dramapocalypse” to describe the many end-of-the-world films we are seeing be released. (Incidently, this one looks pretty amazing.)

Some people may assume the Guarding™ wave is profiteering from people’s fears. I’m sure that may be the case sometimes, but generally it’s empowering people to feel secure and ready for whatever life throws at them.
