According to recent statistics, only 50% of Tanzanian households use any water treatment method at all. Of those that are treating their water, half are boiling while others use alternative methods. Both boiling water and using no water treatment at all are costly, but in very different ways. Not treating your water leads to preventable illness and death, costing families in their ability to work or go to school, and in expensive doctor visits. On the other hand, boiling water, although better than no treatment at all, uses expensive fuel and time, increases fluoride in the water, and hurts the environment. Boiling water on a daily basis can be harmful to your health since it can increase the level of fluoride in the water to potentially harmful levels. Furthermore the environment suffers due to the cutting of trees for charcoal and firewood for boiling water.
The filter tested at a 99.99% microbiological effectiveness rate with a life of at least five years. The technology of the ceramic water filter is simple, effective, and, sustainable. A round-bottom ceramic pot is made from a mixture of clay, a combustible material, and colloidal silver that enables bacteriostasis and microbiological effectiveness. Any agricultural waste such as sawdust or corn-husks can serve as a combustible additive.
