Clear water does not mean safe water. Loophole travels to communities around the world to research and understand the challenges, beliefs, and misconceptions of safe water. We feel that it is our primary responsibility to listen and take time to deeply understand the challenges.
"The Amazon is one of the most challenging rivers in the world. If we solve the problem in Peru, the people of Peru solve the problem for the world."Rob Miller
The ProblemOver 2 billion people lack access to safe drinking water and 2,195 Children die every day from diarrhea, more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.
The SolutionThe Global Access Filter was developed to be simple to communicate, simple to implement, and simple to maintain. It is the most cost effective home water filter solution that provides gravity fed safe drinking water filter to families in developing countries.
- Ultra-Fine Filter is a 0.10 micron washable hydrophobic tubular membrane that eliminates 99.9999% of all all harmful bacteria and protozoa without any chemical disinfectant.
- Protective Shell is engineered for efficient flow and moisture retention with a quick slide fit allowing any person from 8 to 80 to effortlessly maintain.
- Modular Design promotes reconfiguration from home water filters to community water farms. With optimized throughflow and minimal head pressure, a simple 5 bucket system will provide around 6 liters per minute—if we can keep them full!
Social DesignThe Global Access Filter was originally developed and patented in partnership with Roger, who founded Global Access 2030, a 501(c)(3), in 2017. Loophole is proud to support Global Access 2030 through contributions as well as self-funding all travel required for project research and program implementation. With each community we assist, we promote the global social design movement. #who #charitywater #waterorg
[UPDATE] Global Access 2030 partnered with RheoBlu [now VivoBlu Inc.] to manufacture and supply these amazingly simple filters to GA2030.org. For each filter purchased from Vivoblu Inc., Loophole will donate all royalties to GA2030.org.
