About the AquaPodKit and AquaStorage
The AquaPodKit is easy to install and provides the safe water your family will need in the event of a contaminated public water supply. Storm surges and destruction from hurricanes, water main breaks and other catastrophes can make tap water unsafe to drink. With up to 65 gallons and a convenient pump, the AquaPodKit can provide a 14 day supply of water for basic needs for a family of four, and at a much lower cost than bottled water.
When the next hurricane threatens, don’t be without the security of a simple solution for fresh water. Don’t drive to the market only to find yourself too late to get bottled water. Buy one or more today for every residence and be sure to share them with family and friends. When faced with little time to prepare, rest assured that the AquaPodKit will provide peace of mind that you will have potable drinking water.
The AquaPodKit is not re-useable; however, considering the cost and weight of 65 gallons of bottled water, the kit is an excellent and practical solution for emergency water storage needs. Now offering refill bladders!
Storage tanks and other types of containers should be used with caution. For example, previously used cans or bottles, plastic jugs or cardboard containers that have had milk or fruit juice in them may be contaminated and are not recommended for water storage. Milk protein and fruit sugars cannot be adequately removed from these containers and provide an environment for bacterial growth when water is stored in them. Don’t take the risk. Keep your supply in a closed system. Buy the AquaPodKit today, and be prepared next time.
The Need For Clean Water
In an emergency that affects the water supply, you should not use contaminated water. You should always wash hands and face with water that is clean and drinkable – and frequently wash children’s hands, especially before meals. There is always a risk of disease from eating or drinking anything contaminated with floodwater.
FEMA recommends that water be stored for drinking in clean bathtubs, jugs or bottles. The AquaPodKit assures that your storage begins clean and stays that way. After an emergency, if you suspect damage to sewer lines, avoid using toilets and call a plumber to evaluate. If water pipes are damaged, contact the water company and do not use water from the tap.
The Red Cross recommends that water be stored in plastic containers such as soft drink bottles. Avoid using containers that will decompose or break. A normally active person needs to drink at least two quarts of water each day – heat and physical activity can double that amount. Children, nursing mothers and ill persons will need more. Store at least one gallon of clean water per person per day. In an emergency, it is recommended that everyone should keep at least a three day supply of water per person.
