OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Bluewater has donated two of its highest-performing, lead-removing water purifiers to Flint, Michigan, for use in two community care centers helping thousands of residents in the crisis-hit city of 100,000 people.
“A Bluewater Pro range water purifier easily generates 52 gallons of totally clean, healthier tap drinking water every hour, 24/7,” said Lin Guo, Bluewater Inc. national representative. She said that Bluewater water purifiers efficiently removes all traces of toxic metals such as lead, as well as chemicals, microorganisms and pharmaceutical by-products.
One Bluewater Pro unit is now being used at Catholic Charities’ North End Soup Kitchen where daily hot meals and sack lunches are prepared and served daily to the poor, homeless and vulnerable, while a second has been installed at the Shelter of Flint, a program providing emergency shelter, transitional housing and outreach services.
Bluewater’s compact water purifiers harness patented second-generation reverse osmosis technology innovated in Sweden and designed for use in home and commercial environments, including schools, hospitals and restaurants. Bluewater’s patented filtration technologies capture practically everything down to 0.0001 micron (that’s 500,000 times less than the diameter of a human hair, and can deliver 1,248 gallons of purified water per day, which equals 4,726, 33.8 fluid ounce bottles of water over 24 hours.
Using 82 percent less water than a traditional reverse osmosis water purifier, Bluewater’s patented technology is designed to remove lead from tap water. During the crisis in Flint, increased levels of the toxin had sparked complaints from residents of discolored water, headaches and skin rashes and increased fears of longer-term health issues.
