No problem. I also think it's important to realize the difference between conversations on and off the records. WPC has to make sure they CTA. But I believe Jean provided a good way to check if the iodine has degraded.<br><br>I also have been in discussion with them about them manufacturing the potable aqua in smaller packages. Some may find the following of value:<br><br>Me: "Is there any chance we would see potable aqua in a smaller container instead of a bottle of 50. Maybe in a bottle that has a smaller profile and holds maybe 25 instead. I know many people are repackaging potable aqua in order to fit it into hiking, camping, and canoeing kits. For many people, potable aqua provides insurance on a hike or camping trip in case water filters break or boiling is unavailable. The smaller bottle would more likely to be carried on their person when it is needed most, in an emergency. I would be more than happy to round up some ..... interest in such a product. I don't know if it would be cost effective, but that's a different story alltogether. "<br><br>The Response:<br>"I am forwarding your question on to marketing and giving you the regulatory answer.<br><br>Potable Aqua is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency for emergency drinking water. The EPA requires proper labeling of our product. Virtually everything on the bottle label is required by the EPA. In addition we are currently changing our labeling to include addition verbiage<br>required by the EPA. ( We will be printing on the back side of the wrap around.) WPC Brands has investigated packaging this product into a smaller package, but do to the label requirement it's basically impossible. In addition the glass bottle gives the product a better shelf life than plastic or a foil strip pack. The glass bottle we are currently using is one of the smallest glass bottles available. <br>As a side point the glass bottle used for Potable Aqua is the same bottle that we package the US Military's purification tablets in, which are used by our troops.<br><br>Sincerely<br>Jean xxxxx"<br><br>I'll let everyone know what I hear from their marketing department if interested.<br><br>Oh, and gear freak, I'm not trying to take away from your topic. I think it's great that you found new containers for PA. I'm just hoping we can avoid repackaging all together.
