1.) Emergency Water Purification - Disaster Relief
After a disaster in a region, the aid agencies/government/relief organizations are not always prepared to supply large volumes of safe, potable drinking water. They may not have the best tools available when it comes to emergency water purification or water treatment systems, designed for disaster response.
One of the first priorities after a natural disaster is safe, potable drinking water. However, municipal water treatment systems are often one of the first municipal services to fail or become compromised after a natural disaster or boil water advisory. Earthquakes or other disasters like tsunamis could create flooding that often causes contamination, power outages or blackouts. System failures also physically disrupt distribution lines. The task of supplying emergency bottled water to the regions affected by disaster may be overwhelming or simply not possible. Bringing in complex water treatment systems that require electricity, technical support and heavy logistics is often wrought with delays and consumes an incredible amount of financial resources. Cost effective, rapidly deployable emergency water purification solutions must be top priority. Aquapura Water Purification Tablets have been specifically designed with the application of being a disaster response product:
- Have you calculated how much water your community requires post disaster?
- WHO recommends 5 Litres per person per day.
- Multiply WHO recommendation of 5 Litres water per person per day x target population of disaster struck area x 7 days.
- Have you developed a plan to source the required volumes of water?
- What if emergency bottled water is not available?
Delays in providing safe, potable drinking water to the affected region results in disaster, with survivors having no choice but to drink from contaminated water sources. The impact of contaminated water often has the potential to create more casualties than the original disaster itself. An effective emergency water purification or treatment system can provide unheard of response times and aid to regions and communities affected by a natural disaster at a cost that is both responsible and economical. Tonicaqua Labs offers emergency solutions that are incredibly compact and lightweight allowing them to be rushed in to the front line of any disaster area by pickup truck, sport utility vehicle, helicopter or airplane.2.)

3.) Emergency Water Purification for Army / Military
The military team sometimes cannot afford to have safe, potable drinking water when on exercise or while being deployed in the field. Whether the team is on a domestic training exercise or deployed around the world, safe drinking water is of the utmost importance. Bottled water is not always available, and if it is, the logistics of moving, handling and supplying the volumes required can be a very big challenge. Compact, lightweight, rapidly deployable emergency water purification solutions must be top priority. Aquapura Water Purification Tablets have been specifically designed with this application in mind.

The remote team or workers usually showers in untreated and possibly contaminated lake or river water. Everyone ingests some measure of water while showering. It only takes one drop of water containing cysts such as Giardia or Cryptosporidium, bacteria or viruses to cause a reaction ranging from stomach upset to severe sickness or even death. While the remote lake or river where the team or crew is based at may look clean & fresh, it may not be suitable for drinking, cooking or showering purposes. Reliable, cost effective water purification must be a top priority to ensure the health of the crew members. Aquapura Water Purification Tablets have been specifically designed with this application in mind. The costs involved with dealing with contaminated drinking water in one’s remote work place can very quickly be minimised by Aquapura Water Purification Tablets.What are the costs and issues associated with unsafe drinking water in remote locations?

Aquapura Water Purification Tablets have been specifically designed with this application in mind.
5.) Emergency Water Purification - Urban Emergency When there is a powercut or failure or blackout to a routine Boil Water advisory, citizens can no longer boil their water. What if there is no way to bring in emergency bottled water to the community? What if the bottled water companies are not able to operate due to lack of electricity, lack of raw components or lack of staff? Emergency water purification must be a top priority. Aquapura Water Purification Tablets have been specifically designed with this application in mind.
A disaster is often complicated by a number of issues:
- Loss of electricity restricting citizens' ability to boil water,
- Loss or road access due to ice, flooding, washouts etc. restricting the importation of bottled water,
- Loss of electricity, infrastructure and/or staff resulting in bottled water companies not operating,
- A sudden, widespread demand for bottled water will likely outstrip regional supply and capacity,
- Bottled water companies may require days to weeks to be restocked with raw goods,
- Transportation of bottled water from neighboring communities may take days, if available.
Can your community members wait? If a supply of emergency bottled water is available what are the logistics involved with such a scenario? With a minimum recommendation from the World Health Organization (WHO) of 5 Litres per person per day, a community of 25,000 people would require 125,000 Litres per day or 31,250 individual size 1 litre bottles. That’s over 4 truck loads of bottled water per day. A community of 100,000 people would require 500,000 Litres per day or 1,25,000 individual size 1 litre bottles. That’s over 16 truck loads of bottled water per day. The costs associated with both bottled water and the transportation of bottled water can quickly surpass the costs associated with any of Aquapura Water Purification Tablets. Tonicaqua Labs can eliminate the gap that currently exists between the time a water emergency is declared in a community and the time that a response can be arranged. If an affected community is not supplied with safe drinking water within 8 hours, citizens will have no choice but to drink contaminated water which will quickly allow a manageable situation to become an overwhelming medical disaster as symptoms of waterborne diseases such as Giardia, E. coli, Salmonella, Diarhhea, etc. will begin to be present throughout the community. Reliable, cost effective, emergency water purification must be a top priority. These Tablets eliminate the gap when an affected community members may still be drinking unsafe water & save their money. Aquapura Tablets can be used to quickly and easily provide potable water in the event of a municipal water emergency. These solutions do not require electricity and can be stored on site for use in the event of an emergency or transported into a community by truck, plane or helicopter with ease.
6.) Water Purification - Remote Communities
Do you know how much infrastructure is involved to bring in bottled water to a remote community or a fly in only community? With a minimum recommendation from the WHO of 5 Litres per person per day, a community of 2,500 people would require 12,500 Litres per day or 12,500 individual size 1 litre bottles. That’s over 17 pallets per day with a combined weight of over 14,000 Kgs. That’s over INR 4,00,000 (US$10,000) per day not including freight.
- Is that much water even available in your area at short notice?
- What if local roads or airports are closed due to a natural disaster such as flooding?
- Can your community afford the costs of flying in pallets of bottled water each and every day?
- Is their adequate infrastructure in place to fly in enough bottled water, if it is available?
- What will you drink when air shipments of bottled water are delayed or cancelled due to bad weather?
