Southwest Texas is getting pounded by Hurricane Harvey in what could be the worst hurricane that has hit the US in a long, long time. It is predicted that Harvey will cause more than $40 Billion Dollars in damages. Hundreds of thousands of people are without power and services and if they have water, it may be contaminated. Many families will be decimated and the President has declared a Southwest Texas a Disaster, so that FEMA and other government agencies can immediately start helping. This is a disaster of epic proportions and one of the biggest problems will be finding safe drinking water.
It has already been reported that stores in the area are selling water at unconscionable prices… like $100 for a case of bottled water that normally sells for $5.99. If there is a hell, there should be a special place there for those kinds of people. Water is life and people need water to the tune of a half gallon a day per person just to keep alive.
So, here’s where the help begins and the problem starts. Many disaster relief organizations will begin sending in bottled water to help the needy people and yes, that’s a great thing, but millions and millions of plastic bottles will ultimately clog the landfills in the aftermath. Yes, we solve one problem and help a community but we create an environmental nightmare. Plastic Water Bottles are the Devil! I’m not saying that you should never drink bottled water, but by having millions of plastic bottles arrive in any geographic location all at once may be temporarily providing relief while impacting the same geographic location for decades.
Yes, by all means, let’s help our brothers and sisters in Texas or any other parts of the USA or World, but let’s not create more problems with what we do. There is a more responsible way to provide safe drinking water to these people in disaster zones. We have filtration technology that can provide safe, bacteria-free drinking water without electricity, chemicals or plastic bottles, such as the Pulsar Disrupter Filter System or Pulsar Quantum Disinfection.
Pulsar Disrupter Filter
This filter uses Mechanical Filtration and Electro-Adhesion to remove up to 99.999% of the bacteria without electricity or chemicals. It can be a stand alone system or part of a bigger system. The Pulsar Disruptor Filter System is “disruptive technology” in that a filter system can now remove the following contaminants:
- Arsenic V
- Bacteria (99.999%)
- Chromium 6
- Cysts (99.9%)
- Fulvic Acid
- Humic Acid
- Legeonella (99.99%)
- Tannic Acid
Pulsar Quantum Disinfection
Pulsar Quantum Disinfection™ media is a revolutionary new disinfection system for water applications. It’s highly charged substrate and surface areas have been modified through a technological breakthrough (US Patent Pending 62/128,160). Any microorganism (Bacteria, Yeast, Algae, Virus, Cyst) that comes into direct contact with the surface of the disinfection media is immediately and completely destroyed.
Chlorination or Ultraviolet rarely get to 99.99%! This is incredible technology that is revolutionizing water treatment around the world. Quantum Disinfection requires no contact time – just “contact” with the media. It requires no electricity and uses no chemicals. The media is contained inside a small 10” cartridge that flows up to 12 GPM. If you need more, you just add a “parallel” system.
I think we should explore equipping trucks or trailers with these filters built in, so that we can hook up to any water source and immediately provide clean, fresh, bacteria-free water in disaster situations without clogging the landfills with million of bottles of bottled water.
