The AQUABOX comprises three simple components, a rigid re‐inforced 75 litre plastic container, a re‐useable carbon activated filter and dispensing tap. The container is filled with whatever water can be found locally and is initially strained manually through a muslin to remove solid material. Two purification tablets (effervescent chlorine release type) are then added. After 2 hours, potable water may be drawn through the filter and tap. Many of the outbreaks of disease and infection which commonly follow disasters are as a direct result of drinking polluted water and the bacilli contained therein. These can rapidly cause epidemics such as Typhoid and Cholera but can be simply and easily rendered harmless when correctly treated in the AQUABOX.
In many regions of the world, particularly in the absence of deep‐well installations, the AQUA30 version is frequently used on a long term basis. This can combat endemic diseases such as Bilharzia.
Though simple and 'user friendly' the AQUABOX, is normally only released 'into the field' under the supervision of experienced agencies. It is always accompanied by a 'language free pictogram' manual.
