bob® is a domestic rainwater collection bag. Capable of holding up to 1400 liters of clean rainwater, bob® only weighs 3.6kg when empty, and can fold into the size of a large briefcase. bob® is up to 58% less expensive than competing products.
Domestic rainwater harvesting can have a huge positive impact on people's lives. It alleviates the drudgery of collecting water from distant and often polluted sources. In some parts of the world, rainwater harvesting is among the few practical methods for improving water supplies.
Given the variable yet ubiquitous rainfall throughout most of the developing world, the dispersed nature of rural settlements, and challenges of serving urban areas, domestic rainwater harvesting is an ideal way of providing access to safe drinking water directly at the point of use.
