Flood Waters

The bottle is designed to address not only the scarcity of fresh water the world is facing, but mostly the contaminated and hazardous water conditions due to flooding, hurricanes and tsunamis. Those disasters expose and contaminate surface water, ground water and drinking water supplies with a variety of elements: toxins, chemicals, septic and animal carcasses.

The Rescue Bottle filters contaminated water through a reverse osmosis membrane using the driving force of highly concentrated dioralyte solution. The bottle has a 500 ml capacity and has an interchangable mouthpiece for multi-user usage. The dioralyte solution supports 15 batches of drinking water.

Awesome concept, Ceren!
