Wisconsin Pharmacal Company’s Potable Aqua PURE, powered by Aqua Research technology, now available in retail stores nationwide
ALBUQUERQUE, NM– June 24, 2015—Water purification devices using the technology Aqua Research licensed to Wisconsin Pharmacal Company are now being distributed exclusively under the Potable Aqua® brand in the United States. The water purification technology developed by Aqua Research LLC provides a compact, convenient, durable and cost-effective way to ensure that, no matter where they are, if people have access to fresh water, they have access to safe water. Whether you are an avid hiker who does back country treks, a soldier on deployment in a remote region, or a part of a family living in an area temporarily or permanently without a safe water source, having access to pure water can be problematic. More than 3.3 million people each year die of water-related illnesses
Aqua Research has a mission to provide safe drinking water to anyone anywhere. In addition to the distribution agreement with Wisconsin Pharmacal Company, Aqua Research markets its H2gO™ Purifier to water safety and disaster relief non-profit organizations (NGOs) around the world and is developing distribution channels for outdoor and military applications outside the US in Mexico and Canada, as well as in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia
The Potable Aqua PURE Electrolytic Water Purifier from Wisconsin Pharmacal Company and Aqua Research’s own H2gO Purifier, use patented Aqua Research technology to purify up to 20 liters of water at a time using nothing but water and salt. The devices use electricity from an internal battery to create a powerful disinfectant that kills 99.9 percent of all organisms without the need to pre-filter or pump. Fresh water treated with this disinfectant is safe from contamination by viruses, bacteria, Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
“It’s been a number of years since we’ve released a new item under the Potable Aqua brand because we wanted something with true stand-out technology that would live up to the Potable Aqua name,” said Andrew Wundrock, VP of Sales and Marketing for Wisconsin Pharmacal Company. “The Aqua Research technology that powers our PA PURE device is just that. It is completely sustainable and requires no replacement parts throughout its 60,000 liter lifetime.”*
“Wisconsin Pharmacal Company has been an outstanding company to work with,” said Rodney Herrington, president and CEO of Aqua Research. “They share our passion for providing the highest quality health and safety products. Their outstanding distribution channels will ensure that anyone in the US who wants the security of safe drinking water for recreation or for daily living will have access to our technology.” The award-winning PA PURE is available at REI, Sports Chalet and Bass Pro Shops nationwide.
