What do you all think of this VERY innovative watering produ

Came across this very neat new product:

H2GO Bag


And I am looking at getting the Canadian rights to it and could probably also ship orders to the States until if/when they get a distributor set up in that country as well

Retail price point would be in the $15.00 - $20.00 range - max.

Would you buy one for the farm and/or home?

I think its brilliant. I have 3 water troughs that are out of reach of the hose and 2 of those entail 8 buckets of water to fill them each (so either 8 trips with a single bucket or 4 trip with double buckets) and 1 entails 20 single trips or 10 double trips.

I know when we sunk the posts out front for our new sign, we did EXACTLY what that funny video showed - very carefully and gingerly took buckets of water out to mix the cement in and had most of it slosh out in the process before we got there ...

Would appreciate any and all comments - good, bad or otherwise!

Thanks so much everyone ...

Nope.

We have the maternity pens for the cattle in the lean at the back of our indoor arena. Hose will reach but since it's still too cold, we simply use a wagon. We fill buckets, put the buckets in the wagon and the cattle have water. We used what we had on hand. No added expenses or extra stuff sitting around.

It looks to me like you would still have to lift the water into the troughs once you got there.

I will stick with trash bags in buckets for long distance water transport, a ton cheaper.

Other thing we have done when pipes broke in the barn... rinse put a 2wheeled wheel borrow. Fill it with water & bail it with a smaller bucket from stall to stall. We did this to 'top off" the stall waters. Any way we did it.... it suck when you have frozen broken pipes

No I wouldn't buy it. Everything on our place is set up to have way more electrical outlets, water spigots and gates than I could ever need. I thank my Dad routinely for the foresight of doing that. When I go to shows, I bring my own hose. If I have to haul water for any distance, I have 2 bright blue gas cans (never used for fuel) specifically for carrying water. I know other people who use the bucket covers or garbage bags.

Bottom line is, the product is too specific a "solution" for a water hauling issue that is easily solved using other useful products (buckets, gas cans, longer horses) that have more than one purpose already.

Wouldn't have a use for it, but it may be useful if it had a hose attachment to it or something so you didn't have to dump the water out...

Nope, I wouldn't buy it either. To me, it's a gadget.

If I ever need to haul water by hand and can't use the back of my pickup, I'll carry buckets before I put it in a wheelbarrow. If I'm really determined to use a wheel barrow, I'll use a wagon instead and my plastic water containers I have for camping trips, power outages, etc. Fill it up at the tap and instead of lifting it at the other end, use a short length of hose as a siphon.
