Hurricane Preparedness in the Carolina’s with Primo® Water

In a few simple steps, we’ll show you how our new water dispenser helped us prepare for  Hurricane season in the Carolinas. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Primo®.


Just a few years ago in 2015, South Carolina experienced what was called the thousand year flood. Many neighborhoods just a three minute drive from me were under water and the roads washed out. That was the second time since moving to South Carolina that I’ve experienced a major flood.

My husband was born and raised here so he taught me how to adapt and make sure we’re always ready. The first thing he taught me was to make sure we are always stocked up on water that has gone through a purification process. With storms, there’s a risk of tap water contamination and every time it has flooded since I’ve lived here we’ve had to use bottled water.

Having purified drinking water on hand at all times is a must. We used to keep several gallon jugs of water in our storage room, but now replaced them with a Primo water 5-gallon bottle.

The 5-gallon bottle takes up less space, is cost efficient for our family and allows us to “Drink Big and Drink Healthy”. The 5-gallon bottle works with our Primo Deluxe Bottom Loading Water Dispenser (plugged in) and more importantly, with the Primo manual pump when the power is out.

Having the manual pump on hand allows us to dispense Primo water for drinking even when there is no power source. It not only makes me feel prepared for storm season, it also makes it easier for my family to reach our daily hydration goals.

Water is our primary beverage. Keeping water in plain sight and making it easy to access helps increase the amount our family drinks. The Primo water dispenser is in our dining room right off the kitchen where we spend a lot of our time. Our dispenser dispenses ice cold, cool and hot water, removing the need for the kids to go to the fridge for ice during meals.

The dispenser was easy to set up right out of the box. All we had to do was go to the store to buy our first 5-gallon Primo water bottle. Primo water is available at most big-box stores such as Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes and grocery stores like Kroger. You can use the following link to see where it’s available in your area: store locator

We have the Deluxe Bottom Loading Water Dispenser so the 5-gallon bottle slides right inside the cabinet. There’s a small incline that makes it easy to get the bottle inside without lifting. This is important to me because of the weight of the water bottle. With this design there’s no need to lift the bottle at all to reload the dispenser.

Once the bottle is empty, we either take it to be recycled when we get our groceries or refill our existing bottle at a self-service refill station. Whenever we put the empty bottle in the Primo Bottle Return Bin we receive a discount coupon on our next bottle of Primo water – talk about an incentive to keep it up!

The Exchange and Refill Water are both purified using the same treatment process, however, the exchange water does include added minerals to keep the water shelf life stable and fresh. Every bottle has a bottled date on it so we can clearly see how long the water has been on the shelf.

With the Primo water dispenser at home, it’s easy to stay hydrated between working in my office, heading to the gym, running errands or just relaxing. It’s also easy to feel ready for any storm-related water contamination issues as well.
