Design and Construction – Made in the U.S.A.
As simple as it gets, no more digging wells if there is a water source, no constructing sand filters and no more purification chemicals. Families are able to construct and adapt their filter in literally minutes to locally found containers. The kit includes everything you need to attach the filter to any plastic bucket or container. (Bucket not included)
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 (you can do this 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 let gravity do the rest.
Highest Filtration Rates Available
At 0.1 micron absolute, it is impossible for any bacteria, protozoa or cysts to pass through the filter. Other filters at .02 micron absolute, it is impossible for viruses in addition to bacteria, protozoa and cysts to pass through the purifier. These are true barrier filters.
Waves for Water currently offer the 0.1 filter system. If you’re in need of a filtration system dealing with bacteria with the addition of severe viruses then the .02 would be recommended.
Please note we do not offer or sell the .02 filtration system.
Extremely Cost Efficient
One filtration system could provide clean water for a small village for pennies a day.
Since there is such a high flow rate, this eliminates the need to store water which reduces the chances of water being contaminated after it is 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 variations between filters)
Maintenance of this filter is very simple. When the filter starts to slow down or clog, simply back 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.
