Bad water kills people! Diseases such as cholera, hepatitis, typhoid, dysentery, guinea worm, and more are all a result of contaminated water. Over 1 billion people today do not have access to safe water (UNICEF). Every 8 seconds a child dies of a waterborne disease (United Nations).
|Less than 1% of the earth’s water is fresh water, and only about one-third of this 1% is available for human use. Unfortunately, almost all of this water is contaminated. In the developing world, contaminated water accounts for 80% of all diseases and claims the lives of 5 million children a year (World Vision).|
|According to USA Today, "More people die each year from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war." One person in six lives without regular access to safe drinking water (UN Sec. Gen. Kofi Annan).|
The best solution to the water problem is the same one you benefit from every day: chlorination.
Chlorination has protected the United States and other countries for nearly a century and has saved more lives than perhaps any other technology. The New Life International Water Purifier is an unique system that creates chlorine from table salt to disinfect water and make it safe for drinking. It is a simple, light-weight, cost-effective water purification system designed and constructed for use in harsh environmental conditions with minimal resources.
How It Works
The water purifier uses DC voltage (battery or AC with transformer), table salt and water to create chlorine which kills harmful bacteria in the water. The purifier can treat up to 55 gallons per minute depending upon water quality and the size of the unit.
Water that is free of harmful bacteria—just like the water you buy at the store.
Depending on the size of the purifier, the number of people being served, and a few other factors, safe water can be provided for as little as $1.00 US dollar a person per year! That's less than you would pay for ONE bottle of water! One purifier can serve an entire village or more. And treating a single case of a waterborne disease may cost more than providing safe water for a village for an entire year.
"The device produces chlorinated water at a rate that is more than sufficient to destroy, with proper contact time (as instructed in the manual), illness-causing microorganisms in the water." —Pentair Inc. Water Report, November 17, 2005.
Independent laboratory testing concluded that:
"Her report [local health worker] was that prior to the installation of safe drinking water in Lingira, 90% of all families suffered from diarrhea during the rainy season. Since the system has been in use, she hardly sees diarrhea-related illnesses." —A Report From Uganda, 2006
The New Life International Water Purifier has been in operation for over 10 years. As of December 2012, more than 3,000 purifiers have been sent to 78 countries from India to Kenya to Haiti to Brazil.
These purifiers have been used for villages, hospitals, churches, orphanages, schools, refugee camps and disaster relief.
