    Shippable Community Drinking Water Treatment for Emergencies and Remote Locations

    Blue future Filters introduces our latest offering slow sand and roughing filters: our patented SSF/x drinking water treatment technology in a flexible, shipable, storable tank. The SSF/x has been reliably treating surface water to potability worldwide for many years. This new version of the tried and tested technology makes clean water for small communities available literally out of a box. The filters come in a carton, weigh 39 lbs. They can be stocked for ready deployment without taking valuable strorage space. They can be transported in numbers by truck, mule, on the back of a motorcycle or even a backpack. Once on site, they are loaded with 30 cubic feet of local sand and water from any surface source, immediately eliminating common pathogens. Water gravity feeds into the filter and can produce up to 1800 gpd, enough for a small village. Multiple units in parallel can accomodate hundreds of people within days or hours.
