Survival Gear Review: AquaPodKit Emergency Bath Tub Water Storage

The AquaPodKit Emergency Bath Tub Water Storage Kit  starts off with the words that I like to hear most… How to store water for an emergencyMade in the USA.  And if you are a regular reader of either of our survival blogs (SHTFBlog or Survival Cache) then you know that storing water for an emergency is a basic principal of modern preparedness.  This American made product, which you can pick up on Amazon, is a cheap insurance policy that you can’t afford to not have in your preparedness plan.  There are basically two companies out there that make an emergency bath tub water storage kit, one company makes their tub liner in China and won’t be named here and the other makes it right here in the USA – AquaPodKit- PlusOne - Emergency Drinking Water Storage (130 Gallons - Two....  Hopefully you can figure out which one we like better.

  1. I have two 100 gallon water bladders for the bath tubs, (probably the other guy's) but so far haven't had to use them. Better to have and not need! Though I haven't tried it yet, I've been thinking that you could use these in large plastic totes as well! If you live in an apartment or anywhere in a city then this item(s) are a no-brainer IMHO! If the power goes out, then the water pressure would probably drop quickly since suddenly everyone will what to store up as much as they can. Having at least two of these already full (rotated on a regular basis: toilet flushing, plant watering, dish washing, etc.) would give you a serious leg up on your competition (maybe your neighbors), especially if you're not home when the power goes out! GLAHP!

  2. On the surface this seems good, but I believe it is a waste of money. I will just fill my tub and add a splash of bleach to keep it potable. Average tub is 35-50 gallons. 1 teaspoon per 10 gallons, but you really need less if you have city water, because it is treated and normally has small amounts of chlorine already. No bag needed. Also, my hot water heater holds 50 gallons as well.

      • "Wild" water is more gross and as W.C. Fields once said, “I don't drink water. Fish [email protected] in it.” ― W.C. Fields

        “Remember, a dead fish can float downstream, but it takes a live one to swim upstream.” ― W.C. Fields during a disaster all water is "gross" that is why we should have the ability and knowledge to treat and filter it.

  3. I've mentioned on another site somewhere, probably in the review section of "the other bag," I'd be careful about using this product on anything but the ground floor! If a gallon of water weighs 5# (I've also read it weights 8# but haven't bothered to verify either stat), then 50 gallons X 5 pounds = 250 pounds. At least one of these bags claims to hold 100 gallons … that's an extra 500 pounds of stress you are putting on your floor and depending on how your tub is constructed, or what it's constructed of, that kind of weight could pull the tub or shell away from the wall.

    As for just filling a tub as is, that's not safe if you have small children or small animals in your household. And over time, either hours or weeks, the water may leak down the drain ever so slowly, as well as evaporate.

    If I decide I want this quantity of back-up water, I will probably go with this bag … I like the USA-made.

    • Really great points. I may consider getting one of these bags but not filling it more than I would normally fill my tub if I were sitting in it because of the stress issues with the tub and floor. I think having a bladder like this would be better with small kids so they couldn't fall into an open tub, and also keeping debris, hairs, potentially bugs, etc out of the water.
