For the last three decades, Aquatabs has been the leading water disinfection product used by international relief organizations and aid agencies in developing countries with no access to clean drinking water and emergency water treatment during natural disasters. Now EarthSafe, a company known for pioneering cleaning and disinfecting solutions to solve global challenges, brings Aquatabs Water Purification Tablets to the United States.
“Our job is help protect public health,” said Steve Wilson, EarthSafe CEO. “Every year, communities are devastated by floods, fires, earthquakes and hurricanes. One of the most crucial necessities in almost any emergency is drinking water. Plus, with summer travel and outdoor activities in full swing, Aquatabs ensures safe drinking water is available whenever and wherever it’s needed.”
With hurricane season predicted to be higher than normal this year, EarthSafe created an Aquatabs Emergency Kit for retailers located in the Gulf and Atlantic Coast states to help communities prepare for oncoming storms. Providers of emergency supplies are also incorporating Aquatabs into go-bags for survivalist groups.
Water Purification for Adventuring and for Disasters
Aquatabs kills 99.99% of microorganisms, viruses and bacteria to prevent cholera, typhoid, dysentery and other water-borne diseases. The pre-measured tablets rapidly disinfect small or large quantities of water in just 30 minutes after mixing. Aquatabs are used in a range of critical scenarios including water supplies on ships and aircraft, military patrol packs and even general-purpose disinfection for field hospitals. In agriculture and food production, Aquatabs are used to remove pathogenic microorganisms, such as Salmonella and Escherichia coli (E. coli), as well as fungi, mold and trace pesticides to ensure produce is safe for consumption.
Beyond large-scale applications, the individually packaged tablets are designed to be highly portable for travel as well as outdoor activities like backpacking, hiking, camping, boating and RVs. Aquatabs are iodine-free and dissolve clear for great tasting drinking water in only half an hour. With a five-year shelf life, Aquatabs is the ideal water purifier for adventurers and serious preppers alike.
Rich Prinz, EarthSafeGlobal Vice President of Sales said, “The aim is to provide low-cost water disinfection, whether for recreational activities or disaster response.”
