RALF (Restoration Aquatic Life Filtration) Provides a New Solution During a Power Outage to Help the 13 Million Households with Aquariums Sustain Healthy Aquatic Life

Health- Tech Sales is the first company to offer battery powered multi-stage filtration (patent pending) which can be used during power outage emergencies. RALF will make its debut at Booth G5 at the Marine Aquarium Expo at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California on April 6 – 7, 2013.

Southington, CT, April 02, 2013 –(PR.com)– One of the biggest nightmares for aquarium enthusiasts is losing all their aquatic life due to a long-term power failure. During a power failure, lethal toxins quickly accumulate because current aquarium filtration is powered by AC voltage. Health- Tech Sales is the first company to offer battery powered multi-stage filtration (patent pending) which can be used during power outage emergencies. RALF will make its debut at Booth G5 at the Marine Aquarium Expo at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California on April 6 – 7, 2013.

According to statistics from a National Pet Owners Survey compiled by the APPA (American Pet Products Association) there were 700,000 households with saltwater aquariums and over 11.9 Million households with freshwater from 2011 to 2012. While investment in the cost of setting up an aquarium varies, Bloomberg Rankings examined the initial setup costs for a 90 gallon saltwater aquarium to be as high as $17,334. Since power outages are becoming more frequent and longer in duration due to unprecedented super storms like “Sandy” in the Northeast, all these aquariums are vulnerable. According to the Eaton Corp’s “2012 Blackout Tracker Report,” there were 2,808 power outages in the US during 2012.
