First production run

June 26, 2020

Our first official production units are here!! After three pilot runs and a great deal of testing and more testing we are ready to launch.

By no means does this mean that development is over.  We will continue to refine the product as needed and as we get feedback from users, but we’re confident that the UV-H2O-Box  is fit for purpose.

If you’re interested in some of the changes we’ve made over time, take a look at our change log.

Changes in pilot run 3 relative to pilot run 2

  •  outlet port fitting, replaces outlet port stopper and chain include
  • outlet port cap with glued on magnet
  •  glue on complementary magnet to top of tank; match polarities so that cap seats on tank magnet
  •  include screw-on outlet valve with accessories
  •  add rubber feet to WB-GX; discontinue the friction sheet
  •  add the lid switch; the switch disconnects power to the ballast when the lid is opened
  •  spray on water-resistant coating on labels before placing labels on tank
  •  use printed circuit board instead of hand-assembled circuit
  •  use rocker switches in place of toggle switches in the WB-GX units, but not in the WB-X units
  •  Replace the black PC722A DC jacks on the Bud boxes with red PC721A jacks, to improve the fit with the AC adapter and cigarette lighter adapter plugs

Changes already in pilot run 2 relative to pilot run 1

  •  use blue HDPE 1 gallon tank instead of black polypropylene 1.5 gallon tank
  •  allow for use of external 12 VDC power
  •  include AC adapter, car cigarette adapter
  •  circuit turns off lamp automatically after about 1 minute when using external power
