Staying hydrated is a key factor for staying healthy. However, certain open-water oriented activities don’t allow for the carrying of liters of water, and although on first thought being surrounded by a vast expanse of water may seem ideal, sea water is far from safe to consume… that’s where Desalinator comes in!
Desalinator allows for the consumption of ocean water, due to an ingenious filtration system; contained within the opaque plastic housing are four stages of filtration; silica beads to remove debris, electrodialysis to separate the salt from the water, UV to deal with the bacteria and finally a charcoal filter as a final barrier (for the off chance anything nasty got through the previous stages). Safe, drinkable water passes through into the bottle, whilst the dirty brine exists through a second, external, channel.
All of this requires minimal human interaction. The user must simply scoop the water into the container, and let the filtration commence!
