Filter Solution

Our filtration systems are portable, easy to use, easy to pack, and effective. One $50 filter can provide 100 people with 1 million gallons of clean water for up to 5 years.

FILTER LIFE: 1 Million Gallons / up to 5 years
POTENTIAL IMPACT: 100 People / Filter

Simple Design and Construction

As simple as it gets. No more digging wells if there is water source, no constructing sand filters and no more purification chemicals. Families able to construct their filters and adapt them to locally found containers in minutes. The kit includes everything needed to attach the filter to any plastic bucket or container.

Instruction how to set up:

  1. Obtain a clean bucket or plastic container
  2. Use the hole cutter to drill a hole 1.5 inches from the bottom of the bucket (this can be done by hand)
  3. Screw the connector, hose and filter onto the bucket.
  4. Fill the bucket with water from any source, lower the filter head below the water line, and gravity will do the rest.solution-3-1024x564

Extremely Cost Efficient

Two types of filters are available, the 0.1 micron and the .02 micron. The 0.1 micron filters make it impossible for any bacteria, protozoa or cysts to pass through the filter. The .02 micron filters are effective on viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and cysts. Based on the specific need of the community, we will provide the appropriate filter.

One filtration system provides clean water for an entire school for pennies a day.

Fast Flow

The filter’s high flow rate eliminates the need to store water which reduces the chances of water being contaminated after it’s filtered. The only external force required for the system to function is GRAVITY. The flow rate of a filter is determined by a combination of:

  • Head pressure (The distance from the top of the water to the filter)
  • Altitude (The higher the altitude, the slower the flow rate)
  • How clean the filter is
  • The filter itself (there are slight variation between filters)

Long Lasting

Maintenance of this filter is very simple. When the filter starts to slow down or clog, simply wash it with clean water using the syringe provided in the kit. Since the filters can continuously be back washed and re-used, they have an extremely long life expectancy. The ease of operating this system makes it self-sustainable and dependable. These filters and purifiers make water so clean and accessible that people will not only use the filtered/purified water for drinking, but also for cleaning, bathing, cooking, watering plants and more. Each filter can last up to 5 years.

Natural Disasters

Our portable water system is essential for aid in natural disasters. This system eliminates the need to ship bottled water.

Community filters are $50 (not including shipping) and provide enough clean water for 100 people per day. If maintained properly they will last for many years.
