reservoir-boxSeptember is National Preparedness Month. What are you doing to become more prepared this month?

We try to do something to add to our preparedness plans each month so that we aren’t overwhelmed trying to do everything at once. It’s a slow, but steady road and I know we’re more prepared than the average family.

See everything we did to get prepared last September. We definitely haven’t checked as many things off the preparedness list this month, but we did just add one more great product to our preparedness storage.

That product is the Reservoir Emergency Water Storage System. This plastic liner system turns your tub into a water storage tank that will safely hold up to 100 gallons of water.

Our tub drain leaks water, so we’d never be able to store water in it if an emergency arose without a liner like this. Since authorities recommend filling your bathtub with water when a potential emergency is pending, I’m happy to have this liner handy.

Since it’s recommended that you have at least 1 gallon of water per person per day available, 100 gallons would be a 25-day supply of water (although we’d need water for more than just drinking, so I’d probably cut that number in half).

reservoir-tub-faucetThe Reservoir Emergency Water Storage System is made from heavy-duty, food-grade plastic that meets FDA safety standards. You fill it by sliding the fill tube onto your tub’s faucet and turning your water on.

If you want one simple, affordable thing to do this month to become more prepared, pick up a Reservoir Emergency Water Storage System.

Great work, as usual. Preparing is something we all should be doing and I for one am glad a month is highlighted to open the eyes of others.
