EOS International’s water purification technology is a low-cost, low-maintenance solution that attaches to any rural community’s water tank and inactivates pathogens in water systems by releasing a controlled dosage of chlorine. One system can provide safe drinking water for up to 1,000 community members and requires no energy to use.
Water Source Requirements
EOS International's water purification system is designed for use in rural areas with a gravity fed water system having a flow rate between 2 and 20 gallons per minute. The water supply should have minimal organic material present and turbidity levels of less than 5 NTUs.
EOS' water chlorinator uses inexpensive, locally sourced materials including PVC piping, T-joints, caps, pipe adhesive, and ball valves. In addition to raw materials, plans, templates, instructions, and trainings are provided to communities, ensuring projects' long-term success.
The communities EOS serves use locally sourced chlorine tablets (Calcium hypochlorite or Trichloro-Isocyanuric Acid) to disinfect their drinking water. It is important to note that the tablets must be approved for human consumption and tested in the unit to dissolve at a slow rate.
