The H2gO Water Purifier results from a quest to create the best personal water purifier in the world. H2gO is a pocket-sized water purifier for individuals, families, and small groups that converts common salt into a powerful sterilizing solution capable of killing waterborne microorganisms. Many city water utilities use the same core technology.
The H2gO Water Purifier GLOBAL has volume settings of 1, 2, 5, 10, and 20 liters, with a dose of 2.5 mg/L free available chlorine, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Safe Water System requirements common in developing nations. One battery charge will deliver 300 liters, and the device has a lifetime capacity of 124,000 liters (32,000 gallons) with no replacement parts needed.
The H2gO Water Purifier GLOBAL is certified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as meeting their most basic classification for Household Water Treatment Systems. A single dose meets WHO treatment standards for virus and bacteria, while in-house tests show multiple doses inactivate protozoan cysts like Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Independent evaluations are in process to obtain approval at the higher level WHO classification as a “protective” water treatment system.
