20161012: Solution to Disaster Area Emergency Water Needs


So Haiti just got nailed by Hurricane Matthew.

So did 4 states in USA, and other places around the world have problems too.

Water pollution problems exist and everyone wants to ship “BOTTLED WATER”.

Hum, how about some logical thoughts. MSR water filter here, pr20161012-msr-guardian-water-filteroduces somewhere around 10,000 liters WITHOUT REPLACEMENT!

Opps, it is also smaller than a 12 pack of 1 liter water bottles.

It requires NO ELECTRIC, NO GAS, or any fuel other that 2 hands pumping.

Any child can run it.

One of these in a small town can be pumped 24 hours a day without stopping other than some one else taking over as pumper person…

Any water, except saltwater can be used and the result is drinking water.


Consider a helicopter can carry enough to handle 100 towns and will run out of gas before it would run out of units.

At 10-15 cents per liter of drinking water, compared to the STANDARD TODAY OF $100 to $150 per liter of drinking water delivered by emergency services!!

A single supply of 1000 of these could produce millions of gallons of SAFE DRINKING WATER! TAKING care of 100 towns and cities…

I have one of the fore runners of this version. 14+ years out in the wilds and still working fine, I have to replace filter cartridges every 500-1000 gallons. But the body has a replacement kit for it’s seals and o-rings too. Totally field service-able. { I updated the yrs as I realized my son is almost 26 yrs old and I got it when he was 11yr in Boy Scouts. It had been on my shopping list for a few years at that point. However, I currently make 10-15 per week with it as I live in peasant quarters in Mexico and filter my daily drinking water. Been using it regularly for months, been in Mexico 10 months.}

So while I did try to talk to some one a while back about something else and he never even responded, I’m willing to bet some one with lots of Rescue contacts would like to think about this Idea.

Not just for Haiti, but for every RESCUE OPERATION, why be illogical and spend billions on “Bottled Water” which weight tons and is limited in use/rescue?

Those people would have the RESOURCE to help themselves….

Just a thought….

    • Yes, I know. Thank YOU for noticing and please help spread this post/information. Since I have no financial gain you can just let people know of the website although I do think I give some good reasoning from the business aspect of these emergencies and the critical need to get water 1st to people. Thank you again for noticing this post! lovingkindness energy to you & yours

      • I’ve tried to stop comments on my blog so they will go to you. Hope I did it correctly. Always another little thing to learn. One person already said they were going to forward it to a friend in need.

      • Well, if they get the MSR or Guardian website and basic information that is all that is necessary. I thank you for re-blogging it, and the attempt to direct traffic to my site. Getting this out is the idea. I have this on my LinkedIn site, and put it in a couple of groups I belong to. Twitter it & Facebook it too. I had one guy comment on “oh just boil water”. Had to point out boiling hundreds of gallons of water is time consuming, you have to wait for the water to cool to drink, and many places even firewood is expensive or hard to find or is wet and useless. This is just so much more effective and logical and as a businessperson cost effective. AGAIN THANK YOU FOR HELPING OUT!

    • Sure how often is some one talking about trying to build large water treatment plants in tiny rural communities on islands or in African Nations with all kinds of Boko Haram type people around. I can hide ONE of these under a rock and have several in a town. Which is easier than trying to transport or hide 1,000 litter bottles of water. Black markets all over grab rescue supplies on the way to sites.
      The bad guy/gals leave and 10 minutes later the water is being served up to the community again. With the silt filter on even very muddy water should able to be processed. Safely!
