Waterbrick

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen these before? I was browsing around for cistern ideas and saw these. Would work well for those that are short of space (urban environment) or maybe put under your sub-floor. A little expensive but other than oxygen, water is the most important resource you need. Thoughts?

1. Volume: The volume capacity of each WaterBrick is 3.5 gallons or 1.6 gallons for the half size. However, when filling these water and food storage containers, one should assume a volume loss of approximately 2.67% due to the structural design elements.

2. Cleaning: Simply use a quarter cup of bleach with one cup of water and pour inside the WaterBrick, tighten lid; then, shake back and forth for a few minutes. When completed, thoroughly rinse out the contents and let dry. If you feel it is necessary to clean the lid and gasket, remove both and wash. However, make sure when replacing gasket that the gasket's "flap" edge is directed outbound.

3. Filling: When filling these plastic water containers, make sure you completely dry the container, especially the "treaded" area of its neck and cap. Once completed, lay the container on a dry paper towel and let sit long enough to see if there are any leaks before stowing away.

4. Water Storage: For short and long term water storage, it is recommended that you add a water preservative. Aquabarrel does not offer chemicals for treating storage water at this time.Visit the American Red Cross web site for details on how to store water properly.

5. Stacking: Although WaterBricks, when filled, are designed to be cross stacked up to 5 feet in height for storage purposes, we strongly recommend that the average person not exceed 4 feet in stacking height or beyond one's own ability to handle safely.

Food Storage: If you are using WaterBrick as food storage containers and are applying oxygen absorbers to deplete the air inside, make sure you first remove the gasket from inside the cap and cut a 1 inch slit in the middle of the gasket to allow the depletion of air within the container.

 

Ice Blocks: If you want to freeze WaterBricks, do NOT fill the WaterBrick to the very top of the container. Water expands as it freezes and will cause the WaterBrick to distort from it's normal straight sided shape. This expansion will cause damage and void any warranty. Therefore, when filling, your water level should be NO HIGHER than the top of the male locking lug which is just below the WaterBrick logo on the container.

I saw them and what was interesting was they could be stacked like bricks covered with a table cloth to look like furniture

 

the price was a bit steep but for those with money and the need to store water in an apartment it may be good.

 

as Wally pointed out you need to make sure that if your on a second floor or have a basement that the weight is not

 

so concentrated to cause the floor to fall in, water is 8.3 pounds to the gallon + your container you need a gallon a day

 

minimum not including bathing / cleaning / flushing as if water is cut off your going to need to flush with your water

 

or dig and build an outhouse.

 

Another reason why I think in 90 days the world will have fewer contestants fecal matter is the most deadly thing

 

now add in all the people who are woefully ignorant of that or because they have not the resources to remove

 

waste will do as in old Europe throw it in the street and create a petri dish of diseases,

 

add in all the violence and no services to clean it up and you got real problems the movie soylent green comes to mind

 

so yall city folk have fun ya hear ROTFLMAO....

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
