Bottle Makes dirty water drinkable



the military are already latching on to his idea. Four hours after Mr Pritchard launched his new "Life Saver" bottle at the DESI defence show in London yesterday, he sold out his entire 1,000 stock.


These bottles can distill approx 4,000 - 6,000 litres without changing the filter!

Voted "Best Technological Development" at the Soldier Technology conference.



Conventional filters can cut out bacteria measuring more than 200 nanometres but not viruses, which typically are 25 nanometres long.

Mr Pritchard's bottle can clean up any water - including faecal matter - using a filter that cuts out anything longer than 15 nanometres, which means that viruses can be filtered out without the use of chemicals.


Price? £190 bottle! How many bottlesof water do you buy in a week? month? year? howmany litersof water are you buying? will this pay itself?

This would be very helpful in parts of Africa where children, and even whole families need safe drinking water. What they could do is make a pump which filters it through the end of a bumch of these bottles. No need to costly and large filterising plants.



I want one.

Now if only they can come up with something like this that can desalinate as well. I guess that's too much to ask for at this point huh.
