- In the 2010 Crimson Viper demonstration in Thailand, hosted by USPACOM Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response, the Marine Experimentation Center’s independent assessment concluded, “The DayOne Waterbag can produce drinkable water from a freshwater source. It met the US Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine requirements for US service personnel to be able to drink the product water. The smell and color were also acceptable which indicates that people will drink the water instead of using an unclean source. The system is simple to use and lightweight.”
The Most Cost Effective Water Solution
A DoD study estimated that it spends $5/gallon on delivering bottled water to warfighters. Based on a total daily water demand of 5.2 gallons / Marine-day, supplying to 20,000 troops costs nearly $500,000/day. Assuming 1,040 water bottles/pallet, 385 pallets of water bottles are needed. Under this same scenario, and assuming freshwater sources nearby; only 9 pallets of Waterbags are needed to supply the same amount of water (at 500 Waterbags/pallet). At the $5/gallon, the Waterbags provide a 96% cost savings.
