Solar Filtering, It Works!

As proven by my 4th grade science project, adequate sun exposure will in fact, disinfect standing water. Now give me money. UV filtration isn’t new. People do it all over the world. What the SODIS does better is provide long-term durability and viability. The briefcase-like water jug is made of  a high tech material which resists scratching. Scratches inhibit proper UV filtration which means jugs have to be replaced and as we know, the people who use devices like these can’t exactly do that.

Let me tell you why I like this concept. First, someone thought enough to put a 6 liter jug into a briefcase making it much easier to transport. They thought enough to choose a material that can resist scratches better than cheap plastics. Thirdly they’ve done the research and figured out it will only cost $2 to manufacture these life saving water vessels. Kudos to the designer Samuel Rock. Nice name man.

Now give me money.

    I like the concept, especially increasing the surface area of the water exposed to sunlight (assuming that speeds up the disinfection process). The carrying handle needs to be closed across though, because even just a few gallons be carried would cause that joint to fatigue, if not break immediately.

  • I really like the idea of preserving energy with the use of advance technology. This idea has the advantage to be use by most of us.Thanks for the creative mind who have discovered this idea.

    Cool idea, but most places already have massive problems with disposal of used plastic bottles. I makes more sense to me to save the two dollars and reuse bottles that would otherwise be thrown away.
