What started as a casual conversation soon became the catalyst for a major movement. Adams accepted Cousteau’s challenge and became determined to create a plastic water container that could deliver water and food to people living in remote, impoverished parts of the world and also victims of natural disasters like storms, tsunamis and earthquakes. That container, once emptied of its contents, could then be repurposed to build transitional or basic housing.WaterBricks Save LivesFour years of research and development overseen by Adams and his team finally led to the creation of the WaterBrick. In its simplest form, WaterBrick is a container. But it’s not just any container. Its patented design is uniquely multi-functional.Easy to transport, WaterBricks can quickly deliver life-giving water and food to people in need. Because of their rugged industrial strength, they can be palletized, shrink-wrapped and air-dropped anywhere in the world, no matter how remote the locations. But their functionality goes beyond their capacity as a sturdy container.
Once emptied of their original contents, WaterBricks can be re-used as basic building blocks to construct transitional housing. Properly used, they require no foundation or mortar; just stack them like conventional building blocks. The male and female locking lugs tightly fit together, and 3/4′ PVC pipes can vertically lock the joints together if necessary. The resulting structure is astonishingly strong.
WaterBricks thus not only deliver water and food to hard-to-reach locations, but in doing so, they also provide the means to build affordable, basic housing.
Preparing to Meet and Growing Need
WaterBrick International is based in Winter Garden, Florida. WaterBricks are currently manufactured by Custom-Pak in Clinton, Iowa. However, the company is exploring building an additional manufacturing facility in the shared trade-free zone in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Also in the works are discussions about licensing agreements with companies in various locations outside the U.S. to capitalize on potential savings in manufacturing and transportation costs.
WaterBrick International is committed to meeting demand for its product on a global scale and maintaining affordable prices that make it a feasible solution for diverse applications.
