Today we are celebrating World Water Day. There is no better occasion to raise the issue of importance the water in our life. Currently, we have to face the problem of reducing floods, droughts, and water pollution. Purisoo Inc., the southern-Korean startup, gave some serious thought to this issue and has created water purifier bottle.
Facing the Challenge
Unquestionably, the benefits of better water sources are innumerable. These mean less expenditure on health, as people are less likely to fall ill and incur medical costs, and are better able to remain economically productive.
Do you know that globally, at least 2 billion people are drinking contaminated water? Furthermore, 844 million people don’t have basic drinking water services. 159 million drink water directly from surface sources, such as streams or lakes.
No doubts, these problems are challenging and overwhelming at the same time. However, we can reduce the wase of water by using a smart solution as Purisoo – a portable water purifier bottle equipped with a manual pump.
How Does Purisoo Work?
The secret of Purisoo hides behind the triple layer filtration. The first layer consists of hollow fiber membrane. The second is made of an activated carbon. Third one contains a fabric filter. Plus, replacing the filter is a piece of cake.
This device removes 99,99% of protozoans, bacterias, and sediments with its pore size 0.1 micron. In addition, this bottle reduces heavy metals, viruses, bad odor and taste such as Chlorine.
Purisoo allows you to purify reservoir water, rainwater, valley and lake water, rust, tap water and even urine. Although, you have to remember that the bottle will not filter seawater, chemicals, poison or agricultural pesticides.
The device solves issues from which other portable water purifiers suffer. For example, thanks to its advanced pumping technology you can get the water even from a shallow water source.
Besides, you don’t need to be close to contaminated water or have your own chamber to store purified water. Hence you can simply drink the water directly from the bottle.
The Power of Filter
This product is extremely handy and light. It measures approximately 11 inches (28 cm) and weights 20 oz (570 g). The one bottle is able to hold 13.8 oz (410 ml) and handle from 32°F to 122°F (0-50 °C).
Additionally, it is made of BPA free and recyclable material, eco-zen by SK Chemical. This device is also really efficient. Purisoo replaceable filters can process up to 1,000 Liters.
The basic set contains a bottle, one filter, and one hose (approximately one meter long). Optional you can get also Purisoo Spare Water Bootle to store previously purified and filtered water.
The Bottomless Pit of Needs
Purisoo can play a crucial role in protecting people from consuming contaminated water. The purifier is an invaluable help during outdoor trekking, traveling, and emergency situations such as typhoons, earthquakes, fire and other disasters, natural or manmade.
Currently, the startup is crowdfunding their product on Kickstarter. You can back their project and pre-order an early bird for $69. Hurry up, the offer is limited to 300 pieces.
Even though Purisoo is a remarkable idea and can significantly change our daily habits still it is a drop in the ocean of needs of millions of individuals all over the world.
While taking a shower, brushing the teeth or washing the dishes think of those for whom the water is simply scarce. Remeber, the sources are limited for all of us. Happy World Water Day!
