Our water filter reduces the incidence of parasites, bacteria and disease by 99.99%.
With contaminated water prevalent throughout Ghana, nearly every Ghanaian household can benefit from a water filtration device. Water collected from dams, lakes and bore holes range in purity from visibly dirty to microscopically contaminated with parasites, bacteria and protozoa. Water quality from water trucks is not filtered, and popular sachet water is not guaranteed to be filtered. No filtering regulations exist in Ghana for filtered drinking water. Where available, tap water is impure.
Yet most Ghanaians believe their drinking water is safe, often choosing one water source over others by weighing factors such as convenience and price rather than purity. When water is visibly dirty, households implement makeshift filtration methods such as running water through porous fabric. Unfortunately, it's often that which is not seen that results in illness and death.
The most visibly dangerous water is found in low-income rural communities and urban slums. These communities acknowledge the poor water quality because the water is often noticeably dirty.
Gyapa Enterprises has piloted a convenient and affordable compact household water filter that provides clean drinking water. Using gravity siphon pressure to force water through a high-quality ceramic filter, the CrystalPur water filter provides 7,000 liters of safe drinking water - enough drinking water for four people for 1 year before the ceramic candle needs to be replaced.
The water filter has been internationally tested and proven to eliminate 99.99% of all bacteria, parasites and water borne diseases ensuring safe and clean water for drinking and cooking.
