Life Water
Life Water

In the third world countries, diseases caused by contaminated water, such as dysentery, is responsible for more than 200 million deaths every year. The LIFE WATER is a system designed to satisfy the demand for clean water. It can be easily assembled by oneself out of materials that are accessible and durable. Using a four-tier filtration system, contaminants are removed from polluted water. Purified water is then safer for drinking. This device can also provide drinking water to victims in disasters like earthquake and hurricane, as well as be used in wilderness exploration.
