Protecting our people and the planet with greener packaging solutions

Aquapax understands that sustainability is an ongoing process, not a destination, and we are dedicated to protecting our planet and its people through sustainable packaging solutions. We partner with our clients to create environmentally-conscious products that minimise our carbon footprint and reduce our impact on the planet.

Our commitment to being sustainable water suppliers in Perth is evident in every aspect of our operations. We work with fewer resources and collaborate with other industry leaders to remain competitive while making a positive impact on our employees, communities, and the Earth.

Businesses need to address the problems of plastic bottle sustainability, poor water quality in remote areas, and difficulty in water transportation and storage to remote sites.

At Aquapax, we believe that businesses have a crucial role to play in addressing the challenges of sustainable drinking water. We understand that every decision we make has an impact on the environment and the communities around us. That’s why we strive to make sustainable water solutions an integral part of our business practices, from sourcing our materials to manufacturing, transportation, and distribution.

Problems Worth Solving

The issue of plastic waste and its impact on the environment has become a significant concern for individuals, businesses, and governments worldwide. The staggering statistic that more than one million plastic bottles are sold every minute highlights the urgent need to address this problem. At Aquapax, we believe that reducing plastic waste and promoting sustainable packaging solutions is essential to protect our planet’s health and wellbeing. Our commitment to being a sustainable water supplier is actioned through our use of eco-friendly materials and minimising our carbon footprint helps us ensure that our products are not only safe and healthy for consumers but also for the environment.

Water quality is another significant concern, particularly in remote areas where access to clean and safe water can be a significant challenge. Traditional water treatment methods, such as chlorine dosing and membrane filtration, can be costly and require regular maintenance. At Aquapax, we are committed to providing innovative solutions that can help improve water quality in remote areas. Our sustainable water packaging and distribution solutions provide a safe and convenient way to transport and store water in remote locations, ensuring that communities and camps have access to clean and safe water when they need it most.

As sustainable water suppliers, we recognise the challenges associated with plastic waste and water quality, particularly in remote areas. We believe that by promoting eco-friendly packaging solutions and investing in sustainable water management solutions, we can make a positive impact on the environment and communities worldwide.

Aquapax FAQS

Wondering where our spring water is sourced, how our products work or how we can help your business with bulk spring water solutions? You’ve come to the right place. If you’ve got another burning question, give us a call or send us a message.

Where do you source your spring water?

Our Perth spring water is sourced right here in W.A from a natural spring in the Darling Ranges. Our source is carefully monitored and tested to ensure our bulk drinking water meets stringent Australian standards at all times.

What is bag-in-box technology?

Bag-in-box packaging utilises a box, bag, and fitment to transport and dispense liquid products both efficiently and without contamination.

 

Bag: The bag is constructed from layers of film that are sealed together and designed to protect the product quality and keep it safe inside from filling through end use.

 

Spout: The foundation of our all bag-in-box fitments, this plastic-framed opening is sealed into the bag when it’s made and is the entry point for filling the product into the bag. After filling, bag spouts are covered by either a simple cap, dispensing tap, or connector and fitment depending on their intended end-use.

 

Box: the outer package that holds the capped and filled bag. This can be anything from a simple cardboard box to an industrial-sized steel drum.
The bag is first filled with liquid product, and then a fitment is placed to secure the packaging. The bag is then placed in a box to ensure safety in transportation and dispensing.

 

Bag-in-box history
Bag-in-box was pioneered and patented by William R. Scholle in 1955, and it was initially used to safely transport battery acid to automotive filling stations and repair shops. While only starting off in the automotive industry, this packaging system quickly spread to other industries. After the aseptic filling process was perfected in 1956, bag-in-box was able to expand into working with food and beverage products.

Do you charge for bulk water delivery?

We charge for bulk water delivery in Perth. Delivery of Heavy Pallets ( 1000L Water Pods and Pallets of Bulk Drinking Water) to the Perth metro area is charged at a percentage of the total invoice value – this percentage varies depending on macroeconomic conditions. Small pallets delivered within the Perth metro area are charged at a flat rate (rate available at checkout or upon quotation). Bulk drinking water delivery outside the Perth metro area needs to be quoted on a case-by-case basis. For customers in remote areas (mine sites etc) with their own established transport company accounts, we recommend utilising these providers. We can either drop them off at the transport providers’ depots in Perth or, goods can be picked up from our production facility in Kewdale.

What is the lead time for Water Pod delivery?

Lead times depend on the quantity of 1000L water pods required. Please use the timeframes below as a guide.

 

1 – 25 Pods: 2 Working Days
