The Water Purification team builds simple, effective systems out of various components according to the needs of the area being served.
We are proud that our filters are made in the U.S. and have been confirmed by a Food and Drug Administration-registered lab to remove harmful bacteria and reduce viruses.
A Bucket Gravity Drip System is made from plastic buckets and is ideal for small families or areas where there is no electricity. It includes a simple drip filter, pre-filter and spigot. Simple construction techniques make this system easy to build and maintain. A 4-by-4 inch ceramic filter containing silver-impregnated activated carbon is placed between the plastic buckets. Water is filtered as it flows from the top bucket to the bottom.
Small, suitcase-sized units are used in areas where electricity is available. These are typically used at disaster scenes to provide clean water for kitchens, laundry and showers. Multiple stages of filtration screen out contaminants as small as 1/2 micron, which is 1/100 of the diameter of a human hair. Improvements to the design enables the unit to put out six gallons of filtered water every minute.
