Our PurePump yields up to 500 litres of fully purified drinking water per hour, in compliance with the World Health Organisation (WHO) standards for micro-biological content (bacteria, viruses), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Turbidity (NTU). Each Villagepump employs multi-stage filtering that reduces diseases by removing waterborne pathogens causing diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera and hepatitis. The units can operate from all forms of surface water, including ponds, lakes and streams The unique, patented automatic cleaning system extends the lifetime of the ultrafiltration membrane up to several years, resulting in low maintenance needs and low total cost of ownership.

The PurePump is ideal as a compact water treatment system wherever fresh surface water is available or combined with (rain-) water storage systems.
