California's New Back-up Water System Expands into Other States
The demand for LifeTank is gaining momentum as households and businesses see the benefits being prepared for emergencies – everything from city chemical spills to earthquakes, floods and winter storms. FEMA and the Red Cross both promote storing large amounts of emergency water, stating, “If an earthquake, hurricane, winter storm, or other disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, and electricity for days or even weeks. By taking some time now to store emergency food and water supplies, you can provide for your entire family.”
LifeTank is unique in providing backup water because its flow-through technology allows water to be automatically replenished with daily use of household appliances – meaning the water doesn’t stagnate or need maintenance. Basically, you just install it and leave it – until you need it.
And needing emergency water could be sooner than you think. Over the past decade, the United States has become one of the top five countries most frequently plagued with natural disasters, according to the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (http://reliefweb.int/
“… the first thing you put in in a city is the water pipes. That means our water pipes are some of the oldest parts of our infrastructure,”
The LifeTank system provides a safeguard against losing water for an undetermined amount of time. Standard systems com in 80- and 120-gallon sizes but multi-tank and custom designs are available. LifeTank is unique, in that it simultaneously addresses three needs:
1. Access to emergency water
2. Ability to isolate from contamination
3. Continuous replenishment of fresh water without maintenance
