About the waterBOB:
The waterBOB is a water containment system that holds up to 100 gallons of fresh drinking water in virtually any bathtub in the event of an emergency. The waterBOB keeps water fresh and clean for drinking, cooking, washing and sanitation for up to 12 weeks. Constructed of tough, heavy-duty plastic, the waterBOB stays within FDA food grade guidelines and is BPA-free.
Never Be Without Water:
A hurricane, tropical storm, flood or storm surge can interrupt or even contaminate your water supply. Water stored in an open bathtub, with dirt, soap film and exposure to debris will spoil and become useless. With the waterBOB you and your loved ones will never have to risk ingesting contaminated water.
Always be Prepared:
While others rush to the store for bottled water, only to find empty shelves, or wait in line for water with dirty containers, taking the risk by drinking potentially hazardous water, you will feel secure knowing that the clean, fresh water stored in your waterBOB is available for you, your family and your pets too!
The waterBOB is very easy to use. Simply lay the liner in any bathtub, attach the fill sock to the faucet and fill the bladder to capacity, which takes approximately 20-40 minutes, depending on your water flow. A siphon pump is included to easily dispense the water into jugs or pitchers. Never wait in line again to buy expensive bottled water.

Fortunately, the hurricane spared us. Now I realize there's no great way to empty this bag and dry it out inside. I'd really like to see one more port on the bottom for draining it after use.
The biggest issue, however, is that the siphon pump did not operate. On closer inspection I can see a crack in the plastic at the base of the bulb one would squeeze to develop suction. There are also pinholes in the tubing along the plastic seams of the tubing attached to the siphon pump. The materials used to make the siphon, the stress concentrations, and the plastic molding process all need a redesign and better quality control.
Bottom line, it works, but you may need to invest in a siphon pump or just some clear tubing at your local hardware store.
I'm going to buy a battery operated siphon pump to use with it, though. Although the included siphon worked perfectly well, it was quite painful to use because I have arthritis in my hands.
Update 09/25/17: After Matthew last year, I added some bleach to the water before emptying, then drained and rinsed it, and dried it out by hanging it all spread out. Had to change its position a few times until totally dry inside. Once it was completely dry, I folded it back into the box and stuck it in a freezer. We don't use it for drinking, just washing and flushing, so even though it's intended to be a one-use item, I figured it was worth a try.
To prepare for Irma this year, I thawed it to room temp, then unfolded it and stuck it in the bathtub (do not unfold while frozen; it will be brittle). It was in perfect condition to use again. It held water again for almost 3 weeks without a single leak.
Instead of a battery operated siphon, I ended up getting a shaker siphon - just a long tube with a shaker primer on one end. This makes it SO easy! And it makes emptying the bag a breeze: using your hand, carefully fish the plain end of a siphon tube under the filled bag and make sure the end is pointed into the tub drain. Then stick the siphon end into the water in the bag via one of the holes on top, shake it a few times, and wait for the bag to empty.
