East County News Service
May 19, 2016 (San Diego) — Sagan Industries LLC, a San Diego manufacturer and distributor of consumer water filtration products, has launched its newest product, the Sagan AquaBrick™ Water Filtration System, the company announced.
“The AquaBrick is perfect for outdoor and recreational adventures, emergency preparedness and humanitarian aid,” “said Rick Muir, CEO, Sagan Industries. “We feel honored and privileged to play a part in maintaining the health of people everywhere.”
Designed to provide safe water for drinking anytime, anywhere, Muir said the AquaBrick can deliver up to 1.9 gallons per minute of safe, filtered water from any non-salt water source. It is simple to use the pressurized system at home, on recreational outings or in the case of a water emergency, he said.
The Sagan AquaBrick system consists of a unique three-gallon, rectangular plastic container made of lightweight, high-density polyethylene that can withstand temperatures of up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit. The bright, blue-colored AquaBrick container is formed with grooves and handles to transport and interlocking with other AquaBrick containers. The beneficial uses of the airtight and UV-resistant container are numerous, including water and food storage. The containers can keep items dry for camping, hunting, fishing, picnics, boating, kayaking and for use as an emergency kit. The AquaBrick container also is great for storing anything which needs to be kept in a safe, water proof, rodent-proof container.
Also included as part of the Sagan AquaBrick system is the Sagan DuraFlo™ Filter, which has been tested by an independent laboratory and certified to exceed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Water Quality Standard for removal of 99.9999 percent of bacteria and 99.99 percent of virus and 99.99 percent of two common water-borne, microscopic parasites called giardia and cryptosporidium, which are frequent causes of intestinal illnesses, for up to 550 gallons.
“One of the greatest advantages of the AquaBrick Water Filtration System is it can be used to filter 500 gallons of residential pool water for safe drinking in case of an emergency,” said Muir. “Many Californians may need to rely upon their pool water as their only source of water in a disaster situation, such as an earthquake.”
Muir said it’s taken three years of research and development, including testing of scores of prototype filters. “Our goal with this product line has been to make the unthinkable drinkable, which is now become a reality,” he said. “At Sagan Industries, we are committed to providing clean, pure healthy drinking water to everyone for everyday use in outdoor living, including camping, hiking, outdoor adventures and in case of emergency and survival.”
Muir also said the Sagan AquaBrick Water Filtration system is available through several wholesale and retail distribution channels. Retailers represent several niche markets, including outdoor, sporting goods, hardware and warehouse stores. Sagan Industries LLC, in business since 2013, said it is planning to introduce several unique water filtration products in the coming year. For more information, visit www.SaganFilters.com.
