Dirty Water

MECKOW Aquapur provides credible and tangible health benefits to rural and urban communities, yet provides minimal interference with their lives, thus honouring their cultures and environmental needs so they may prosper within their traditional environment.

MECKOW Aquapur is a unique water purification system which can transform contaminated water from almost any non-saline source into safe, clean drinking water. There are two tapped outlets, one for safe clean drinking water. The second can be utilised for hygiene purposes, such as hand washing to help prevent the possible spread of diseases. It requires no electricity for the filtration process and produces 1000 litres of safe clean water per hour. Eliminating diseases and sufficient to supply up to 2000 people per day, with safe clean drinking water, therefore ideal for communities in the developing World.

The MECKOW Aquapur can be installed using local labour and materials. It requires no specialist skills for installation and routine maintenance therefore encouraging local involvement and giving the community a sense of ownership once the project is complete. A community co-operative can take responsibility for the general maintenance of the unit.
