Providing access to safe drinking water is the easiest way to directly impact health, happiness, and productivity. It is our primary responsibility to listen and take time to deeply understand the challenges first hand.
"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 low-cost water filter was developed to meet the cultural, economical, and logistical challenges of the third world while being easy to demonstrate, implement, and maintain.
- Ultra-Fine Filter is a 0.10 micron tubular membrane that eliminates 99.999% 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!
