GAIA Manual-Mobile Water Filter

GAIA Ltd. is a company dedicated to the most important resource of life:  W A T E R

We assemble this Mobile-Manual Water Filter system in Uganda with highest quality components from Europe.

If you have no electricity available, you can produce with this hand-operated pump about 300 litres of drinking water per hour, free of germs, bacteria, virus etc. You do not need to boil before drinking the water. With this pump you can pull the water from 4-5 meter deep wells.

If  you have electricity or a generator of minimum 2 kW available, with this electric pump you can produce about 1000 liters of drinking water per hour. This pump can be used to pull water from about 7 meter deep well. The electric pump works on 220-240 Volt and uses 650 watts. If the water is chemically contaminated, an additional active carbon filter can be installed in the system.

This is fast enough for big schools or even for small villages.

The big advantage of this system is, that this filter can be washed and cleand on simple methode, and does not need to be replaced when the filter is dirty and blocked like most other filters.



Advantage of Ultrafiltration:

The deployment of ultrafiltration offers significant advantages over conventional water treatment methodes with 99.999% guarantee of bacteria-free drinking water.

* Removal of germs, bacteria, viruses, microorganismus and all types of suspended solids.

* No chemicals for filtering involved.

* Simple and save to operate and maintain.

* Long-lasting filter:  6-10 years, using a back flushing technology.





Comparison Reverse-Osmosis versus Ultrafiltration

* Strips out everything that is in the water   * Filters out bacteria, particles that are bigger than  0,02µm (0,000.02 mm)
* Water becomes very aggressive, able to   destroy metal pipes in the course of a    month to some years. * Water is clear and can be trasnported safely through any kind of material the pipes are made of (e.g. galvanized metal, copper, plastic).
* Destroys dental inlays in the mouth. * Inlays are save; the oxidation-film is not damaged in any way.
* Out of 1.000 litres of water, one only gets   from 400-600 litres; the rest is waste-water. * Only about 2,5% of the filtered water is needed for cleansing of the filters: from 1.000 litres, about 975 litres is usable for drinking as water that is clear, safe, free of - particles and any kind of bacteria - (including viruses and of cuorse also - legionella).
* Maintenance is very expensive - filters have to be changed a minimum once per year. * Maintenance costs are low - filters can be used a minimum of six years with regular usage.
* Concerning the de-mineralisation no detailed analysis has been made availabel of how this aggressive water can   impact the bones and general health. * As particles and any kind of bacteria are filtered out, all minerals and trace term elements remain in the water, thus this is not a point of discussion. There IS no negative influence on the bones or other aspect of human and animal health.
