Faircap Family Water Filter
Faircap has designed a small, robust, easy-to-use, high-flow and low-cost water purification device that can be screwed on or adapted to existing water containers such as drums, buckets or tanks of water.
With a membrane with a pore size of either 0.1μm or 0,01μm, the Faircap Family can eliminate turbidity, bacteria, protozoa, cysts and even viruses that cause gastrointestinal diseases without the use of chemicals or external energy. This kit is designed to be light enough so that it can be easily transported to the affected area and installed locally.
The Faircap Family works with the pressure of gravity and a small hand pump. Due to its intuitive design using a pump and a limited number of parts, the Faircap Family filter can be installed and used by following simple graphic instructions.
Family-sized: It can filter up to 30L/h. Ideal to meet the drinking water needs of a family of 5 for an estimated period of a year.
Easy to use: Just pour water into a jerry can or bucket and filter clean water using manual force and gravity.
Last point of contact: On-demand filtration helps to ensure that clean water does not get contaminated again after filtration.
If you want to store filtered water for several hours in a container, make sure that the storage container has been previously washed with soap and water to avoid recontamination of the filtered water. Adding a few drops of chlorine or a chlorine tablet is recommended to keep the water safe to drink for several hours.
Do not use the filter in water sources that contain dissolved chemicals or salt water. Faircap does not remove chemicals or salt.
Do not use the filter if it is damaged or broken. A broken filter does not remove harmful pathogens.
