Being a Dad can sometimes be a thankless job. This Father's Day say thank you with a water storage tank. Is it a traditional gift? No. Is it a useful and necessary product that your Dad needs? Yes. We chatted with the folks at WaterPrepared about how water tanks factor into emergency preparedness and the difference they can make in a natural disaster. Check out our interview below to learn more about this important product.

What are your featured products this season?
"160 Gallon Water Storage Tanks."

What can we look forward to from you at the Deseret News Home Show?
"We've recently created a 100 gallon stackable tank that allows people to build up their storage with a smaller investment."

What home design and decor trends are you anticipating for the rest of 2015?
"Emergency preparedness is growing. It certainly isn't design and decor, but with growing awareness and increased natural disasters, more homeowners will be looking to have peace of mind in the event of an emergency."

What inspires your products?
"Initially, it was frustration. There wasn't a residential water storage company that made emergency water storage easy or convenient. Now, it's helping to prepare homeowners for disasters."

What is your favorite part of the Deseret News Home Show?
"What love the small 'what the?!' products. Things you only see at shows. And presentations by great performers."

What advice would you give homeowners?
"Don't be impatient. Often the saying 'you pay for what you get' is true when it comes to your home. Don't settle, it's worth the wait to save and get the right product the first time. And don't forget about what's important, a house is a place to keep your family safe."
