Waterfull Receives 2019 TechConnect Defense Innovation Award for Self-Refreshing Emergency Drinking

Patented System Collects and Stores Safe Drinking Water for

Friends, Family, Employees, Team Members, Citizens and Warfighters


Whittier, Calif., October 7, 2019 – Waterfull has been named a 2019 TechConnect Defense Innovation Award winner by the Selection Committee of the 2019 Defense TechConnect Innovation Summit and Expo for the company’s self-refreshing drinking water storage system that provides a week’s worth of drinking water for a team of 4 without requiring any maintenance.


The Waterfull barrel has an inlet valve that connects to an ordinary outdoor hose bib (spigot) through the food grade hose that is included with each barrel. An ordinary garden hose is then connected to the barrel’s outlet valve. Because the barrel is pressurized, that hose can be used for common tasks like washing and watering. Each time the hose is used, it pulls water out of the barrel and draws fresh water into the barrel from the spigot, ensuring a zero-maintenance supply of refreshed drinking water. Multiple barrels can even be linked together to increase the total storage capacity of the system.


“We have just released a new heavy-duty version of the Waterfull Barrel, which is ideally suited for the demanding environments in which our warfighters live and operate” stated Waterfull founder and CEO Howard Murray. “Providing our warfighters with a zero-maintenance emergency drinking water storage system is one way we can help protect those who protect us.”


Attendees to the Defense TechConnect Summit are invited to see the Waterfull Barrel in person in Waterfull’s booth #112. The event will be held at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, October 8-10 in National Harbor, Maryland.

1. The Barrel uses the city water supply or a home’s own water supply and cannot control the quality of water that goes into the barrel – the water is only as safe to drink as the source.
