Your workplace water solution
  1. The pods served as the shutdown’s main potable water source for multiple camp infrastructure components.
  2. Safe, secure, traceable drinking water was delivered to the mining site prior to the arrival of the 800 personnel, ensuring no operational delays to the project due to inadequate hydration requirements.
  3. The water pods reduced transportation costs because they only require carrying one way then they are recycled.
  4. A >75% reduction in plastic use by using the 1000L Aquapax Pods as opposed to the equivalent volume in plastic water bottles which equates to reduced non-recyclable landfill and therefore a reduction in carbon footprint.

Problem faced by the client

A top-tier mining client had a looming shutdown with 800 personnel due to arrive on site. Unfortunately, there was insufficient infrastructure to supply safe drinking water demands of that number of people.


The client required the Aquapax products to:


  • Be a safe, secure and traceable source of quality drinking water for the mining site
  • Easily transportable utilising site equipment (forklift or telehandler)
  • Minimise transportation expenditure with one-way packaging
  • Reduce plastic water bottle use and associated waste disposal issues

Solution provided by Aquapax

A total of 90 Aquapax 1000L Water Pods (that’s 90,000L total of fresh Australian spring water) was dispatched to the mine site over a 1.5 month period.


We provided support to safety, environmental, and infrastructure teams seeking to implement the pods in various settings around the site including:


  • Linking 1000 L Water Pods to Crib Rooms with existing plumbing
  • Linking 1000L Water Pods to Ice Machines
  • Linking 1000L Water Pods to eye wash stations
