  • Improved hygiene resulting in improved health

  • Most common water treatment products are Chlorine based. In a report publiched by WHO "An increased risk of bladder cancer appeared to be associated with the consumption of chlorinated tapwater in a population-based, case–control study of adults consuming chlorinated or non-chlorinated water for half of their lifetimes". Aqua Salveo™ is not Chlorine based.
  • Chlorine tablets are expensive and the taste of the final product is not pleasant and not odourless
  • Water filters are expensive and for them to be effective people have to be educated on how to use the system, needs access to an infrastructure that could supply the filters
  • Jik or Javel are products that have not primarily been created for Human consumption – but for bleaching stains out of fabric – it is a cheap solution for a global problem with a bad taste and also bad effects for the consumer over an extensive period
  • Boiling of water before use is practical for people with small households where use and demand of water is low. Yet it is not affordable for poor people who cannot afford fuel to boil water daily
  • Soap in hand washing basins does not guarantee that the next person using the same water will not extract diseases from the same water
  • Specifically created to address a need for Disinfecting water – where there is no formal infrastructure for water treatment or to assist the need that arises where current structures are currently out dated and cannot cope with the supply – as a result of lack of funds or disaster situations
  • We have received a number of positive and life changing testimonies, which is available on request
