be careful with the waterbobs, supposed to be 1x use only (probably ok if you dry it out well after usage)
there's been numerous reports of them leaking and not holding water as well. Those things are pretty cool and relatively inexpensive, but it's too bad they didn't build them to be more reliable. Cool to have in an emergency, but I would not bet the farm on it being there for you.
Pulled this brand new item out of the box to fill it in preparation for Hurricane Irma and there is rip right up the crease. It won't hold water at all. When I need it the most, 24 hours from the hurricane, this item was a complete failure. I don't know how the company will react when I try to return it but I know I relied on it and I shouldn't have.
We bought this in preparation for Hurricane Matthew, unfortunately the hurricane is about to hit and the product has a whole and is leaking. Hope we don't loose access to drinking water because this was our water source since water was sold out in our are.
Wanted to use this product for Hurricane Matthew last week, thought I was smart having this on hand. This product really let me down, as the 'filling sock' plastic was extremely thin and flimsy and the seams of it were not closed as they should have been, so unable to fill the water storage container and did not have the back-up water supply I counted on.
trying to prepare for hurricane irma expecting no electricity or water for days to weeks. Tried to fill the water bob and the "sock" part that you need to attached to the bath tub spout has holes in it.
Used for hurricane Irma prep and aftermath with no power. The fill tube leaked all up and down the seam and it took forever to fill. The siphon also fell apart many times getting water and would not gravity flow. Good idea, wound up using the water in the days after but terrible quality control for a one time use item. Didn't need the added stress.
