Aqua Research, LLC
As a company driven by a passion to provide a sustainable water treatment solution to those who need it most, Aqua Research, LLC set out to create the world’s best personal water purifier – the smallest, easiest, and most cost-effective water treatment solution for developing countries.
In their quest to design a system that would meet the extreme needs in developing countries, the results produced a quality product more than suitable for outdoor enthusiasts, travelers, emergency kits, first responders, the Peace Corps, and the military. Their initial product, the H2gO Purifier has capabilities that have never been matched in such a tiny package. In keeping with their mission to provide the means for clean, safe drinking water, they continue to develop water purification products to benefit both developed and developing nations.
Their mission is to serve the water needs of mankind, in this case through the provision of personal water purification. The H2gO Purifier was designed for hikers and campers, travelers, missionaries, Peace Corps volunteers, first responders, disaster relief, and emergency kits. However, their ultimate dream is to provide cost-effective and sustainable water treatment to the people who need it most – those with no access to safe water. Their goal is to help reduce the devastating impact of unsafe water, both physical and financial.
H2gO is a truly sustainable option for emerging countries, offering no maintenance cost or resupply logistics. By being part of the solution to provide safe water to families in developing nations, they can help people around the world realize their potential:
- Household water disinfection is the best way to reduce diarrhea and can pay back up to $60 for every $1 invested.
- Access to safe drinking water and sanitation worldwide would save health agencies $14 billion per year and individuals $680 million.
- There would be 640 million more productive working days per year, 544 million more school attendance days, and 3 billion more healthy days for children under 5, together representing productivity gains of $19.8 billion a year.
