Did you know that roughly 1 out of 8 people in the world do not have easy access to clean drinking water? And did you know that unsafe water kills more people every year than all other forms of violence—including war—put together? Sadly, around 90% of these water-related deaths are children whose developing immune systems are too weak to fight off diarrhea, dysentery, and other illnesses harbored in contaminated water. There is a monumental, worldwide water crisis going on and it’s hidden right in front of us. We in the U.S. don’t need to think about it because safe water is at our fingertips. But that is not the case for almost 1 billion people on the planet. The facts may seem overwhelming because this is a huge crisis.
Hollow Fiber Membrane Filtration sounds complicated, but it’s actually not. It’s doing the same thing that a common kitchen strainer or coffee filter might do, but only at a microscopic level.
Using the same technology utilized in Kidney Dialysis machines, the tiny polysulfone hollow fiber micro-tubes trap all bacteria larger than 0.1 microns in diameter. Harmful bacteria and microorganisms which contribute to millions of deaths each year remain inside the filter casing and are removed by simply back flushing.
Our filters are tested by Pony Testing International and EPA certified laboratories in the U.S. according to the EPA testing method 600 standards.
