The Water-Genie water filter is a hollow fibre membrane technology water filter for outdoor and personal domestic use. The water-Genie water filter will filter water at a rate of 800ml per minute at 0.1 microns.
Water-Genie water filter will filter up to 30 000 litres in its lifetime
Water-Genie works with gravity only and does not require electricity
Water-Genie is plug and play. No installation required
Water-Genie has a flow rate of up to 800ml per minute.
The sediment filter removes sand, dirt, silt, plant and animal matter extending the lifetime of the filter
Water-Genie removes bacteria, impurities, micro-organisms and fine particles
Water-Genie will filter out 99.99% of Protozoa which are larger, more advanced single-cell bacteria such as cryptosporidium and giardia which can cause severe intestinal problems.
No electricity is required, the flow rate is at least 800ml per min with a water head of 50cm.
– Filter cartridge lifespan: 30000 litres (theoretical value, depending on water quality and use conditions).
– Very small and portable, easy to carry. It can remove bacteria, rust, impurities, micro-organisms and small fine particles in the water.
– Bacteria removal rate can reach 99.9999%, such as salmonella, E. coli, vibrio cholera, salmonella typhi, and protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium.
– Storage conditions: normal temperature, dry environment, keeping out of the
sun. Storage time: 2 years.
– Product application: used for outdoor drinking water & water purification.
Water-Genie is a hollow fibre membrane technology water filter for outdoor and personal domestic use.
This product is primarily used to solve the problems related to domestic drinking water by removing impurities in the water at a low cost, making clean drinking water available to the masses.
According to the World Health Organisation, disinfection with iodine or chlorine has a low to moderate effectiveness in killing Protozoa such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia while filtration has high effectiveness in removing Cryptosporidium when using an absolute less than or equal to 1-micron filter. Water-Genie filters 0.1 Micron.
The World Health Organisation published its 4th edition of “Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality”. In the report, the severity of the risk to public health and well being brought on by bacteria, viruses and parasites in the water is clearly stated:
Infectious diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria, viruses and parasites (e.g. protozoa and helminths) are the most common and widespread health risks associated with drinking water. The public health burden is determined by the severity and incidence
of the illnesses associated with pathogens, their infectivity and the population exposed. In vulnerable subpopulations, disease outcomes may be more severe.1
The greatest risk to public health from microbes in water is associated with the consumption of drinking water that is contaminated with human and animal excreta, although other sources and routes of exposure may also be significant.
Waterborne outbreaks have been associated with inadequate treatment of water supplies and unsatisfactory management of drinking water distribution.
The Water-Genie filter has been extensively tested by numerous testing laboratories including SGS ( Appendix D) and Pony ( Appendix E). In South Africa, we have test reports from Setpoint Laboratories and Water Lab in accordance with the SANS 241 drinking water standard.
The Water-Genie filter has been proven effective in filtering out all bacteria from the water.
It is common for chemicals to be used to purify drinking water. One of the most common chemicals used is chlorine. While chlorine may be effective in killing bacteria such as e. Coli, it is highly ineffective in killing protozoa. *
Owing to the exceptional resistance of the oocysts to disinfectants, E. coli (or, alternatively, thermotolerant coliforms) cannot be relied upon as an indicator for the presence/absence of Cryptosporidium oocysts in drinking-water supplies. *
