LifeSaver Provides Safe Drinking Water

LifeSaver, a UK-based manufacturer of portable and re-usable water purification systems, is aiming to provide an effective and long-term clean water solution to communities in Africa. In partnership with distributor African Aqua Solutions, LifeSaver will supply schools, medical facilities, and religious centres with its C1 unit, a large-scale water purifier. The project is expected to provide more than one million gallons of clean drinking water to eight localities in Tanzania throughout September.

Capable of producing more than 132,000 gallons of safe drinking water at the turn of a tap, the C1 offers the benefits of mass water purification for larger communities, with the simplicity and efficiency of LifeSaver’s smaller purification devices. Very low maintenance and user-friendly, a single unit will provide a community of 100 people with their daily drinking water for up to four and a half years at a negligible cost per gallon.

Like all of its purification products, including personal water purification, the C1 effectively removes 99.9999% of bacteria, including E. coli and salmonella, 99.99% of microbial cysts such as giardia or cryptosporidium, and 99.99% of viruses including astrovirus, hepatitis A, rotavirus and norovirus from water supplies with no electricity or chemicals required.

Wesley Clarke-Sullivan, Humanitarian and Disaster Response Manager at Icon LifeSaver Ltd, said, “We are immensely proud of LifeSaver’s ability to provide clean, safe, drinkable water in regions where such supplies are limited or contaminated. We are committed to working with governments and organizations around the world to give as many people as we can access to clean water, and this project is the latest in our mission to deliver that.”

Founded in 2007 on humanitarian principles, LifeSaver has a history of providing aid to those in need of clean water. It came to life following back-to-back natural disasters – the Indian Ocean Tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Inventor Michael Pritchard felt compelled to address the resulting need for access to clean drinking water.

The first prototype was developed in his garage and became the world’s first portable water filter capable of removing the smallest known waterborne viruses. Since that time, LifeSaver has established itself as an effective and long-lasting solution to drinking water issues in the humanitarian and military sectors, as well as for outdoor enthusiasts.
