AquaPod Deluxe – When the Going Gets Tough the Tough Saves Water

Print Friendly

It is Friday here at Backdoor Survival and you know what that means; it is time for another fabulous giveaway!  As someone who lives and breathes and is even obsessed about preparedness, it goes without saying that when an opportunity comes along to demonstrate how to store extra water in advance of a disruptive event, I jump on it.

Today I am thrilled to share my experience setting up the AquaPod Deluxe and, in conjunction with the nice folks at AquaStorage, am offering one for free in a giveaway.

AquaPod Review

What the Heck is an AquaPod?

So what that heck is an AquaPod?

The AquaPod is a heavy duty bathtub liner that can be filled with water in advance of a storm or weather system.  Think of it as insurance when you anticipate that access to clean, usable water will be unavailable for a few days.

The AquaPod is is made in the USA which is rare these days.  You already know how I love it when companies support their communities by using local organizations in their manufacturing process. AquaStorage does just that; the AquaPod is assembled by the Austin State School of the Aged and Disabled. Now how cool is that?

Assembling and Using the AquaPod

Follow along below as I set an AquaPod up all by my own self – without any help from Mr. Survival Hubby who thinks he is better as such things than I am!

Other Facts About the AquaPod

The AquaPod holds up to 65 gallons of water.  Think about that.  At a water requirement of 3 gallons a day per person, that works out to 22 man-days or 11 days of water for two people and more if you conserve.  Also, you can expect the water to stay fresh for up to 8 weeks although water never really goes bad, just stale and or contaminated.

In addition to being a cinch to set up, something I like about the AquaPod is that the storage requirement is zilch.  Storing the boxed kit takes up no room at all.  Plus, if you have two bathtubs, you can have up to 130 gallons of fresh water ready to go before that hurricane of storm hits.

Which gets me thinking: I wonder how the AquaPod would work in a shower stall?

The AquaPod Giveaway

Here is the part you have been waiting for.  To enter the giveaway for an AquaPod Deluxe Kit (which includes three liners!), all you have to do is enter leave a comment below telling me why you want to win an AquaPod.

Of course I would also love it if you signed up to receive my email newsletter, or followed me on Google+ or Pinterest so you might want to do that, too, for good karma credit.

You know the drill.  All entries must be made via the comments area on this website and a winner will be chosen totally at random.  The deadline is Thursday, May 1st at 6PM PDT.

The Final Word

This has been such a fun review.  It was satisfying to know I could create 65 gallons of water storage all by myself in less than 10 minutes.  Also, once the tub and liner was filled, I didn’t have to find anywhere to store the water.  It was readily available in a suitable container (the tub) designed to carry the weight of the water.  And by the way, no, I am not dumping the water.  I am using it to water plants and flush the toilet.  We do not waste water in this household!

Did I mention the AquaPod is well priced at only $46 for the deluxe kit with 3 liners or $23 for the regular kit with a single liner?

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Aquapod Deluxe Kit

Have you considered storing water in your bathtub?  The AquaPod is a bladder that you can use in your bathtub to store water if you know that a storm, flood, or hurricane is brewing. (I call these “disruptive events”.)

Bargain Bin:  Let’s make today all about water!

Suncast RB50D 50-Gallon Rain Barrel:  A rain barrel is a great way to collect water for, well, a rainy day.  This is the rain barrel I own.  The instructions indicate that it must be dumped regularly to prevent algae formation but since I will be using this “free” water in the garden, it will get replenished regularly by Mother Nature.  That said,  I am definitely going to keep an eye on things.

Potable Aqua Water Treatment Tablets: Potable Aqua Water Purification Tablets make questionable water bacteriologically suitable to drink. Easy to use and the water is ready to drink in 30 minutes. One 50 tablet bottle treats 25 quarts of water.

NALGENE BPA-Free Water Bottle:  These $8 water bottles have served me well.  I fill them up with water from my Royal Berkey and keep one bedside, one at my desk and another in the bathroom.  Keep in mind that price-wise, some colors will be more expensive so if color does not matter, go with the cheapest (currently the green version).

LifeStraw Personal Water FilterThe Amazon Top Ten Most Wanted Survival and Outdoor Items   Backdoor Survival:  The LifeStraw is considered the most advanced, compact, ultra light personal water filter available. It contains no chemicals or iodinated resin, no batteries and no moving parts to break or wear out. It weighs only 2oz.  making it perfect for the prepper.

Did you know that Emergency Essentials sells gear as well as food?

I recently purchased the Goal Zero Nomad 7 Solar Panel plus a solar battery charger to provide auxiliary power to all of my USB devices.  That means that worse case, I can use the solar power to fire up my iPad and post to Backdoor Survival if the need arose.

The Goal Zero® Nomad 7m is an ultra-compact yet powerful solar panel. Enables you to recharge your handheld devices directly from its USB or 12-volt DC charging ports.

I will soon be writing up a review but in the meantime, here are the specs:

  • Provides up to 7 watts output in good sunlight
  • Only 13 ounces
  • Compact foldable fabric case
  • Compatible with most USB devices
  • 5+ year life span

As of this writing, the combination of the two items is $119.99 and for me, represents a good investment in having solar generated power available to my devices, no matter what.

AquaPod Deluxe – When the Going Gets Tough the Tough Saves Water — 138 Comments

  1. Why would I want the aquapod?

    Because this one is free? 🙂

    No, actually, in an emergency water is the number one most precious thing a person needs. Without water you may live for three days, possibly less. I can think of few more horrifying ways to die than from lack of water. So, it’s always smart to have as many options to have potable water as possible.

    • I love this site! Very helpful! I would love to have the aquapod. I live in a very rural spot with three kids and little space to store water. The nearest water source that I know of is miles away. It would be wonderful to have this backup water source! Thank you for your very informational emails! Keep them coming!

  2. Water is the one of the first needs to be filled in a crisis. I like the ease of setting this up. Since I take care of my Mom, I think she could help with getting things in place during a disaster with this kit. She would be able to handle it as it not heavy, awkward, or require extensive directions.

  3. Hi, I would like to win an Aqua Pod because I am trying very hard to do prepping on a limited, fixed income. I’m a single dad raising a teenage daughter on a disability income. I would very much appreciate the opportunity!

    I’m a regular reader, have left comments many times. Hope I win this one!

    Thanks,
    Rich

  4. Awesome. I’ve been concerned about how to store water and this is a great way to do that and a great gift for others. Also makes a great spare bed for visitors. Loved my waterbed in the 80’s! Lol!

  5. The 3 gallons of water a day is a minimum. A big problem is having to go outside to the rain barrels and carry in water to flush the commode. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the water right there by the commode and it would be so easy to fill the tank for flushing? And you are right about the price. Not bad at all.

  6. I would love to win one of these! I think it’s a great idea! I would probably share one with my parents too. They live just outside of town and their electricity goes off if it rains or the wind blows too hard or the sun shines just right (let’s just say it happens a lot 😉 ), so they lose power to their well quite often. It would really come in handy to have water to flush their toilets while they are waiting for the power to return. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. I already subscribe to your news letters and through the last couple of years much of your information has been a great help for me to provide for my family. I would like to enter the AquaPod giveaway as it sounds like a wonderful way to keep water clean during unusual times. We already fill the bath tubs when we have warning of storms coming but these liners would allow the water to be used for drinking as well with out the waste of energy spent to boil it after it has set for a day or more in the open. I love your site! It has be a wonderful help to me not just in preparing for emergencies but to live a greener life style every day. Thank you

  8. When I’ve put water in the tub in the past, it always seems to leak down the drain after a time. This would be a great way to make sure the water “stays put.”

  9. We have one of these and only one bathtub, but I’d love to win for my daughter and son-in-law. They’re newlyweds and don’t have the budget for much prepping yet, so we’re helping them out when we can. I can just see their cats leaping on this big “water bed!” haha!

  10. I know that I need to get my water storage situation started and the AquaPod kit would be the first and least expensive option before I buy and setup water barrels.

  11. i live in a limited space, which makes storage hard, but we manage. my four year old daughter loves helping me prep things for uncertain times. the auquapod is an item i’ve looked at for a while. i believe its simple enough that i could teach my daughter to use it for when i’m making other preparations in the time of a crisis, or worse, i havent made it home yet.

  12. This is a great tool to have! This winter because of the extreme cold we had many area water main breaks that left us without water for days. I found out very quickly that water goes the fastest and you never have as much as you think!

  13. Living in a house that is on the outskirts of town and looses power frequently sucks.
    Living in that house and having well water is great until the power goes out then it sucks.
    Winning an Aqua Pod would make my life suck a lot less when we get another storm. At least we could flush……

  14. I live in hurricane country down in SE Texas. We have evacuated a number of times over the years. This thing would be ideal. I have always just filled all our tubs up before leaving (for flushing toilets). We definitely could use one of these for drinking water. I usually just load up on cases of water from Walmart. We have well water and I really hate investing in all that disposable plastic.

  15. Why you want to win an AquaPod?

    I’ve been considering purchasing a few. These are great for what I’d call a mid-term emergency duration situations. The AquaPod is ideal for situations where events where warning is involved like, hurricanes, forest fires, and possible flooding. The AquaPod would help round out my water supply requirements.

  16. My biggest concern for a “When the Fit Hits the Shan” senario is having enough clean water. Since we have two bathtubs in the house, the Aquapod kit will provide up to 130 gallons of water … and a spare bladder. Yippee! Thanks for the opportunity to win this kit!

  17. Here in southern Oregon, we are in a drought and expecting to get worse over the summer. We periodically have power outages, so this would come in handy.

  18. We live way out in the middle of nowhere and fully depend on our spring for water. Unfortunately when the electricity goes out which can be often we have no source of water. I think that the Aqua Pod would be incredibly handy to have on hand because quite often we know when we will be losing power. It also looks like I could set it up myself after seeing you do it!!! 🙂

  19. This would really help to store adequate water especially during hurricane season. I like the fact it doesn’t take up much space until you need it.

  20. I want one of these because water storage is the one area in my preps that is lacking. This would really help in that area.

  21. Water is life. That being said, water is also cleanliness–an aid to health and hygiene–and it restores you inside and out!

  22. I love this! I would love to give this to my son and new daughter in law and grandson. They are new “preppers” and just getting started is sometimes the hardest part. This would give me peace of mind as I gently encourage them to always be prepared for anything!

  23. Sufficient water storage has always been a problem for us, living in a condo. I have used the tub when the water had to be shut off in the past, but not for potable water. Mainly for flushing. These liners look like a great way to store water quickly and easily.

    Thanks for the heads up, Gaye!

  24. The aqua pod is an amazingly simple and ingenious idea! I would love to win this to get closer to the goal of being prepared. Thank you for your enthusiasm and selflessness in wanting all to be prepared 🙂

  25. I have always loved the idea of the AquaPod. It is a great option to have several gallons sitting in an out of the way location. I have a well and am still figuring out how to draw water from it as it is fairly deep; this would be a good temporary fix for that problem.

  26. This is great because I don’t have much storage space for water, I can keep this filled at all times in my second bathtub. I live in earthquake state Cali, so we never know when it’s coming! We don’t have time to think ahead and fill bathtub, everything needs to already be ready! Gosh I guess I don’t have enough water stored after rest in this post I thought it was 1 gallon/ person per day min! 3 per person would be much better!! I need to store more H20!

  27. We live in Florida and the constant threat of a hurricane makes us
    very concerned about having water after one hits. The water supply is
    nearly always compromised and the power off.

    We would certainly put the POD to good use and it would help so much
    to have water if we get a hurricane this year. This POD is well designed and practical we would just love to have it.

  28. I would love a free aquapod because of my locale. In a storm, especially the winter storms we had these past 2 winters, we could use a resource like this in times of limited water availability.

  29. I have actually been meaning to buy one as I was turned on to them by my father.

    Water is the number 1 things to have in an emergency. Can you ever have enough water?? Me thinks not.

  30. I would love to win a Aqua Pod , as a prepper I am always looking for great idea’s and I think this Aqua Pod is one of the best tools a person could have.

  31. This aquapod would fulfill my water needs at least to some degree. I’d love to have one. My concern is I have no tub, only a shower stall so therefore, nowhere to set it up or fill easily. Wondering how a quick little setup frame would work, just need to figure out a fill method. However, my kids each have tubs so this would go into a prepping kit for them.

  32. Would love to win an AquaPod! It’s actually been on my “To-Buy” list for a little while, but I haven’t had the extra money, which could be solved with a free one 🙂 Great review, and thanks for the giveaway!

  33. I would like to win the AquaPod because it’s easy to use and even if you have some water put back for an emergency situation, you can never have too much. I appreciate the chance to win one since, like most people these days, I’m on a very limited budget.

  34. The AquaPod would fulfill one more item on the list. And it is way neat that the Austin State School of the Aged and Disabled assemble them. Thanks Gaye

  35. We live in the country and our primary water source is our well – 280 feet deep – I have a $70 Well Bucket that holds almost 2 gallons – that is 16 lbs a lift – I would have to make 32 lifts at 16 lbs a lift for a total of 512 pounds a distance of 4480 ft to equal 65 gallons – it would be LOT easier to have 65 extra gallons water in my bathtub – you need to work smart not hard

  36. My wife and I live on a limited income (SS) and getting prepared for emergencies takes a long time. Winning the AquaPod Deluxe would be a great help to us.

  37. As a senior, living alone, this would be wonderful. It is something I could do without having to ask for additional help.

  38. Living in a small apartment, this would be an ideal solution to water storage, leaving me room to store other essentials.

  39. Been a low-profile prepper since Y2K and regularly advocate to others to be prepared for energencies and disruptions.
    I fully expect water supply problems if we get a major Northwest eathquake or other big problem. Our backup water source is the nearby tidal river which I expect will quickly become an open sewer.
    The wife’s 5 grown kids and their families all live in this area and some will surely be coming here when SHTF.

  40. Having one of these kits will greatly ease some of the worry and stress that I have in regards to supplying fresh water for my family in the event of an emergency.

  41. Why? Right now I have 3 7gallon aqua tubs sitting in my bathtub and that is not nearly enough. Being on disability and knowing that I need better resources,this would go along way in enabling a good amount of clean water storage and with the siphon it appears to be fairly easy to retrieve water as needed. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these. I subscribe and have your food storage book and am on my way to becoming better prepared.

  42. We live in the desert and have a standing water tank outside. We haul water to keep it full. If something happened to that tank we would be in a mess. The Aquapod would give us some extra time to get another tank and be back in business. We can’t bury a tank because the rock that covers our area is too big and deep.

  43. Why would I want to win an aquapod? You can never have enough ways to store water in an emergency situation. Plus you make this look easy! You go girl!

  44. this would be a wonderful and CLEAN way for me to store water for me and my daughter, son-in-law and little grandson. I can’t convince my daughter that she needs to prepare (storing food, supplies, water etc), so I’ve been trying to set aside provisions for all of us in case of a disaster. This would be a gigantic help to my limited water storage space.
    Thanks for all you do – you have given us all so much invaluable advice. Let us all hope we never need to use it because of a disaster!

  45. Living in earthquake country, you never know when, but you do know the big one is eventually coming. Water is available until power to the pumping stations fail, so there is time to store water.

  46. I would love to win one of these, not for myself, but for my sister and family.

    We already have a 55 gal drum with filters for at home and 2 smaller 12 gal containers to put in the back of the truck if we had to leave.

    I really worry about my sister though. She lives in a very hot part of TX which is prone to hurricanes. She relocated there a bit over a year ago from western NY where the threat of such weather doesn’t exist and I cannot convince her that they should keep water on hand.

    I know if I gave her one of these she would keep it in her bathroom and use it if there was an emergency. She just isn’t going to go out and buy one for herself. Hubby and I started assembling emergency kits for our family members for Christmas: crank flashlights, emergency radios, nice firstaid kits, etc. Gathering things as we find deals. This would be awesome to include in my sister’s.

  47. I want an aquapod (or 3) because, given time to fill them up during an emergency, it solves the problem of WHERE to put 50+ gallons of water AND oh my god what if it leaks. These look like a great solution.

  48. I am so glad you did this post. I have seen the Aquapods for a couple of years, but never heard of anyone setting them up. It would go a long way to completing my water storage. Especially living here in tornado alley!

  49. we are in our 60s and 70s so this would be a big help as lugging water gets to us easily to have it in this quantity and close by is great

  50. I would like to win because I have recently, in the past 10 months, transplanted my family from the North to the South and life is a little different here. We lived in a concrete jungle, in the North and everthing was easy to get to and obtain items but now we live more in the suburbs. Me and my family would surely need a item like that.

  51. My worst fear is being without water for my family in an emergency. We have a well and our pump stops without electricity. I have some water in bottles but they would go fast. This would give us extra for a few days. I love your site for the great info and books. Thx

  52. I would love to win the aquapod because water is of the utmost importance for life and you can never have enough in an emergency that you don’t know how long will last.

  53. I would love to win this because it is such a simple, practical solution to the problem of clean water. Our house is the planned location for family, so we will have quite a few more during an emergency. This would help tremendously.

  54. I just ran across your website(hope it didn’t hurt too much). When I last tried to get an AquaPod, they were out of stock everywhere. Since then, I just did not get around to it(The round to its are hard to find; the square ones are every where). My wife is not on board re prepping, so this could be a case of “you can’t complain, it’s free”.

    In the spirit of exchange of values, some advice. Consider the use of the AquaPod in a shower stall VERY carefully! The bladder is over size for most stalls and even if you could block the entrance, unless the walls were concrete or heavy duty backed tile, the weight of the water is likely to break through and spill.
    I am looking forward to getting your emails.

  55. I would love to own an aquapod because we live in a gulf state where hurricanes and tornadoes are not uncommon. It is important to be prepared for natural and manmade disasters. I have recently started prepping and I’m in need of a good water storage option for my family. Thanks for your site and all the informative articles.

  56. I’d love to win the AquaPod because, let’s face it, you can never have too much water.d not just for drinking or cooking, but keeping clean is also an important part of survival and this would give me a bit more I could count on for those ‘wash rag washups’.

  57. I have looked at these before and considered buying one because I think it would be an excellent source of clean water.

  58. This device would be great for vacations, cottages, beach houses, etc. where the need may arise for water but it is not practical to use jugs and bottles.

  59. It would be a great solution for us because we are moving into a new apartment and will finally have a bathtub to use it in. Water is the most important thing to store and can be one of the most difficult to find space to store it and that will support the weight. Hope I win this!

  60. When I was growing up, we would fill the bathtubs with water during emergencies. It always kind of grossed me out to be using water that was open to whatever was floating in the air. I would love to win the AquaPod so that my family & I can feel just that much safer (and cleaner LOL) if a disaster should occur.

  61. why I want to win an AquaPod. This is a great idea! I never seem to accomplish storing water. It would be nice to know if I needed I could just fill one or two of these up. I probably would try the shower stall. But it might lose its shape when the door was opened? I would love to win this so I could give one each to my sons for their families use>

  62. What an awesome product and a great price! This would give our family such peace of mind in an emergency. And I’d definitely like to see how it would work in a shower stall too 🙂 Is it recommended to use the liner only one time or can it be reused?

    Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  63. I have been wanting a bathtub water storage kit for awhile. I think it is the most practical, if you have any warning, to getting a substantial amount of water. No lugging it around or trying to fill 5 gallon bottles. I need one of these!

  64. I would love to win an AquaPod! Being from Oklahoma, I know first hand what going without basic necessities can be like- (the F5 on May 3rd, for example!). It is the main reason I started to prep and your website is awesome in helping not only me but others on their path to self-sufficiency!

  65. I only recently found BDS. I have subscribed. You should give me an extra entry 😉

    I want an aquapod because water is currently the weak link in our prep’s. We have plenty of filters, but would be forced to haul water from nearby farm ponds. With an aquapod, and if we knew the power outage was wide spread, we could store some extra, clean water, which would delay the trips to the pond. Hopefully, until the power for the municipal water pumps comes back on.

  66. We live in an apartment so storage space is limited. Also new to prepping for the new family. This piece of equipment would allow me to fill it at the last moment putting the necessary amount of water aside while not taking up too much space or money. Nice review. Best write up I’ve seen so far on this item. Thx.

  67. I want to win this because I live in an apartment so I cannot keep rain barrels or large containers of water on hand. This looks like the perfect solution to that problem….such a great idea.

  68. Since I have a small home and very little storage space for water, this would be the perfect solution in an emergency situation. Thank you for the review, I’ve seen these before and have often wondered about how you siphon out the water. Thanks for sharing and for a chance to win!

  69. I’m currently disabled and my wife is still partially disabled due to a car accident. Prepping is something we’ve come to learn about recently, and the limited income we have makes it tough to gather and stockpile supplies. Any help with gear we can obtain free helps. We already know the importance of potable water in an emergency, and this kit would help us dramatically. Thanks for your website and giveaways.

  70. Holy cow! I absolutely love this!! What a smart invention. Our house is very small and we don’t have a great deal of storage space. Stocking up on water during hurricane season (I live in Florida) has been a challenge. The aquapod is a good solution to our space problem. Thank you for taking the time to review the product and tell us what you think.

  71. This Aquapod looks great! Any home that has a bathtub can prep quickly! This is an answer I’ve been looking for!

  72. I’d love to win the AquaPod because water is one of the first necessities in an emergency situation. While I have the ability to filter small amounts of water, I do not currently have a storage system for a large amount of water. This would be ideal.

  73. I would like one to see how it would work in a house with only showers.
    And to introduce it to the Australian prepper market.

  74. I want to win this because I am responsible for my mom who is disabled andit is vital that I have an efficient way to provide water in a time of crisis.

  75. I would love to win one because I have seen these before and was intrigued. I would like to see what this is all about before committing to buying anymore. I think this is a great idea and hubby says he can the ‘tubs’ for any extra ones i get so that we can have a safe inside storage way for water come hurricane season. It does seem to us that his would be the ultimately safest way to store water and have clean water if it floods in our area.

  76. the reason i would want to win any sort of water collection item is because water is the number 1 item to have to survive!!!!

  77. I would love to win the Aquapod Deluxe System to add to our preparations for the upcoming hurricane season here on the Gulf Coast. The Aquapod seems to be the best solution to water storage in the event of a disaster. Thank you for exposing your readers to this great resource. Win or not I am going to purchase this item.

  78. We are just about to move from earthquake country to hurricane territory. These Aqua Pods would be a strong step in the right direction.

  79. We have one of these and last year there was a problem with the water main. by filling this up we had plenty of pottable water till the problem was reapaired..I think it is a great item to keep on hand. Reasonably priced and easy stoarage.

  80. We have quite a bit of water stored in 2-liter soda pop bottles. I would use the Aquapod as a gift to one of my adult daughters and her husband, who are just starting on their road to emergency prep!

  81. We live in Florida and hurricane season is fast approaching. This would come in handy to store water before power outages occur.

  82. Thanks for the chance to win.Water is the foundation of preparedness but more importantly to life.We take clean water for granted in our everyday life.If I won this it would enable me to help family and friends.

  83. My biggest concern with a disruptive event is having access to clean water. Given that my cats often hang out in our tub with dirty paws this aqua pod would ensure that the water is clean.

  84. I would love to win an Aquapod Deluxe! We are fairly new to being prepared for a disaster. This would be a great asset to our water storage – which is not yet built up – if anything would occur. Our area is suffering a great drought right now and our water well is starting to dry up. This would allow us to at least get some water out before the electricity goes out! Thank you for this oppurtunity!

  85. These things are awesome! I always wondered how they would work. Thanks for the review. I’d love to get one and share with my sister who I just got into prepping.

  86. I loive in tornado country and will be having a baby in just a few weeks. Having a reliable source of fresh water in the event of a storm that damages the local infrastructure could make a big difference.

  87. Gaye,
    I would love to win the Aqua Pod kit because I have limited storage space and using the bathtub would be a great way to store more water.

  88. I would like to share the aqua pod information with friends and permaculture folks here in Queensland, and there is no better way to share such info than with a demonstration model on site .. .

  89. Growing up, mom and dad would fill the bath tub with water before a big storm. We had well water and when the power went out, we had no water. I’ve always remembered that trick and the Aqua Pod would make it much more sanitary. What a great idea! I would love to win one!

  90. These water savers are such a wonderful idea. They are simple, but so vital in an emergency. I would love to have them on hand for me and my kids!

  91. I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where the eye of hurricanes Camille and Katrina hit. I save my Kentwood water gallon bottles starting in mid May through hurricane season. 6 to a case. Then when yet another hurricane threatens, I get them from the attic and fill them all with water. I keep about 14 cases of 6 at all times. If the hurricane doesn’t hit us or the threat is over, I use the water to water the yard and plants. This AquaPod would be a dream. Thank you for the introduction. One question. Can it be reused after emptying? Thanks.

  92. I really could use this Aqua Pod, I live in Cal and storing enough water has been very hard for me to do. It hasn’t rained enough to collect rain water. the near by stream has dried up. my freinds well has done dry. All of my back up plans have done dry. All that is left is water storage in bottles.

  93. I’d love an AquaPod for emergency prep here in Los Angeles, where I imagine our state’s massive drought will mean either water shortages or high prices this summer.

  94. Because without drinking water death is guaranteed.
    I don’t like those odds!
    an AquaPod system could make all the difference 😉

  95. I would like to win one because I have wanted to purchase one but due to my husbands unwillingness to prep to the point that I do, he would prefer that I dont buy one because he thinks that I am taking this prepping too serious. He doesnt feel like anything will ever happen therefore it is crazy to spend money on too much prep stuff. I would love to have one tho. Thank you. Love your website!

  96. I was just talking with my husband about a WaterBob. Hmmmm. It sounds like an Aqua Pod might be the better choice! Please enter me in the give-away!

    Thanks!

  97. I want an Aquapod because there really is no other way to store that large a quantity of water easily in my house. We just went through a couple of days of tornado warnings and are entering into Hurricane Season. I want to be prepared if my water system is damaged.

  98. I would love to have this. I don’t have much room to store water at any given time, but if the situation was right this would come in handy with just a bit of notice!

  99. i just want to thank you for doing all this hard work and putting out a superior blog.the giveaways are great don’t get me wrong but the information is priceless.I don’t want to be entered into the running since i have one already and only one tub .i want someone who truly needs one to win .

  100. Although I am on a well with a backup generator, the well is a low producer, so having one would boost my available water in an emergency.

  101. Water is one of the most important items to store….and also one of the most difficult. Living in suburbia, I know I personally don’t have “enough” stored, but just don’t have anywhere else to store. This is a great item!

  102. I would like and use this product to supplement my other water supplies for just in case. Extra jugs of water..frozen or stored, the hot water heater and water barrels would help get one though but an extra 60 gallons would help immensely, and used with a distiller would definitely not go to waste. A great idea of a product.

  103. I would like an Aquapod for the simple reason I need another form of water storage. This would make life 100 times easier is SHTF…

  104. I would use the Aqua-pod for water storage on the second level of my home. All of our current water is stored and accessed on the first floor and in the basement. This would allow my family to maintain a viable water source in the upstairs portion of our home.

  105. I would like one of these as it is the best way to store up water in a short notice situation. they are great as they do not take up a lot of space and they are always at the ready.

  106. I would like to win the Aqua-pond and it would likely be used a few times a year with us here in short order as we are going to be moving into our micro home and i would be able to share how it holds up to infrequent repetitive use.

  107. I would love to win an aquapod. Our area was hit in 2005 and 2008 with hurricanes. Each time we were without water. The first time for 10 days. I was not prepared back then and stood in line with others as we waited for the guy delivering water to our store to unload the allocation for the store. We were then limited to how many gallons we could purchase. That will never happen again. I start stocking up at this time of the year so that by the time hurricane season hits, we will have a nice supply. However, having something that would hold 65 gallons and could fit our tub would be fantastic—-giving us that extra supply we might need.

  108. You may have heard of the central Arkansas tornadoes that hit in our area Sunday night. I live in the middle area of the 4 tornadoes that touched down, and was blessed we were untouched. I have 2 liter pop bottles of water, and the Aquapod filled would sure be a lifesaver in any emergency for my family and neighbors until we got utilities back operational. Gaye I get your newsletters and FB feeds. I have learned so much from you, and look forward to your continued efforts. Many blessings.

  109. As I live in a major drought area and am on a well, I lose water if the power goes out, so it would be really nice to have a store ready in the event of a storm that kills the lights.
    Thanks,

  110. I would love to win the AquaPod, because I’m new to prepping and water is one of my biggest challenges so far. Why? My house is about 1,000 sq ft and I’m storing water for my DH, myself, my three kids (one under 3) and two dogs. We’ve had several long term power outages here in CT since we moved into our house and the AquaPod would give us a little extra piece of mind when the summer/fall storms start rolling in.

  111. I would love to win this because I know that water is the most important item you need to survive. It is also very much needed by both my wife and me to take our very needed medicine 3 times a day with 8 oz. of water. I have been disabled since 1992 and my wife is almost there now trying to take care of me even if I can get around a bit. We are also the go to place for our 3 children, 8 grand kids and 2 great grand kids. All of our survival supplies are located at my home and the extra water would be a major help with all of the little ones.

  112. I would love to win the AquaPod. Have use the tub before but it tends to become polluted in an open tub. This would make it good clean water for every use.

  113. Well, Id be usin it to gimme some water storage for the Bunker, since it dont have no water there, what with all the ammo takin up all the room and all. I culd move the AP rounds out of the bathtub and stack them over the bags of fertilizer.

  114. I would want since I don’t even have a bathtub. Its frustrating knowing that everyone has a tub except me.

  115. I would dearly love to win the Aquapod because we don’t have remotely enough water stored. If we lose power our well pump wouldn’t work and it is too deep to pump manually.
    We have a seasonal stream that runs by many homes before getting to our land so initial water storage is imperative.

  116. Have an Aqua pod;
    Gave us potable water during a massive forest fire in Nederland Co,the Cold Springs Fire. No power,no water for a couple of days. Evac of 2000 people,8 homes destroyed, flames insight. Waiting for reverse 911, having potable water while watering the roof and property gave me some comfort!
    All Prepers should have one.
    Drained it, 4 weeks later, had a little chl in it water still fine.
    Whats the best way to dry for reuse?

    How do i enter give away for 3pk deluxe?
    Thanx
    CBM
