The Earth's water supply is 97% saltwater. Of the 3% remaining approximately 2% is frozen leaving a mere 1% to fulfill the needs of the planet. Of the 1% there is a large portion of non-potable water from pollution, bacteria contamination and naturally occurring substances such as sulfur, arsenic, fluoride that we have little control over.
Depending on the source there are in the world approximately one trillion different species of bacteriae occuring in nature. Most of the research and talk are about the "bad guys" such as E.coli, E. Bola, Salmonella, shigella, cholera, and other enteric pathogens that cause severe illnesses and even death. The smallest bacteria is approximately 0.2 microns in size up and can go up to 10 micron bacteria.
There are thousands of devices and treatments ranging from the addition of chlorine and boiling water to ultrafiltration and hollow fiber membranes. Additionally the use of distillation equipment such as the system created by the Israelis on the concept of dehumidification are gaining popularity but at a much higher cost. There is also ultraviolet radiation to zap the bacteria and reverse osmosis areless available. The heavy use of electricity and the wasting of precious water resources make these approaches less desirable.
The Right2Water Missions Solution
Ultrafiltration is the best approach to providing clean, safe, and good tasting water. It does not require electricity, nor does it waste water in its process. It is cost effective, durable, portable, easy to operate and maintain. This is where Right2Water Missions comes in. Its products remove all the pathogens providing up to 30 gallons (120) liter PER HOUR, and once assembled is a hands-free system. One of the benchmarks set out by the World Health Organization and others is the prevention of cross-contamination that takes places with hands, cups and ladles in the storage container. Right2Water Missions has a sealed container with a snap on lid keeping people out of the water. The Right2Water family of products have a 10 gallon storage capacity with a clear visibility throughout the systems for checking the progress of water filtration without having to open the system adding another layer of protection against cross-contamination. One of the other benchmarks is the lifetime cost of production for safe water. Right2Water products average approximately 0.3 cents USD per gallon (4 Liters) in lifetime water production.
