WATERisLIFE is always researching new water delivery tools. Our goal is to understand, research, help develop and ultimately deploy new technology that works. Here are several we are working on:
The Drinkable Book™
A book You don't want to put down! In partnership with Dr. Theresa Dankovich from Carnegie Mellon, WATERisLIFE introduced The Drinkable Book™, the first-ever manual that provides safe water, sanitation and hygiene education and serves as a tool to kill deadly waterborne diseases by providing the reader with an opportunity to create clean, drinkable water from each page. We are working on a variety of languages, teaching methods and ways to share the message through training, storytelling and discussions in communities and schools worldwide where there is a desperate need. Each book can provide a user with clean water for up to four years.
WATERisLIFE has introduced a campaign to move into full production of The Drinkable Book™, and with your help, we can distribute the books as part of WATERisLIFE’s integrated water, sanitation and hygiene program to save lives and transform communities, as well as make the books available for global partner distribution. Please DONATE to help provide funding for research and development of The Drinkable Book™ to get it into the hands of those in desperate need of clean water.
WATERisLIFE is working in partnership with pAge Drinking Paper on The Drinkable Book™ paper, research and production, and our plan is to begin global distribution of The Drinkable Book™ in 2016.

SUNSPRINGTM - A Solar Powered Microbiological Water Treatment System
A life-saver for entire communities, medical facilities or schools. The SunSpring is WQA Gold Seal Certified to the U.S. EPA Standard for Microbiological Water Purifiers. The SunSpring physically removes particulate matter, turbidity, bacteria, viruses and cysts from virtually any water source, including rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, shallow wells, rain water, unsafe municipal supplies and springs. This ultra purification technology is self-contained, is designed for community-level water output, and has an automated self-cleaning maintenance system. Each SunSpring filtration unit can filter up to 5,000 gallons of clean water per day. WATERisLIFE has installed the first unit in Northern Haiti, providing clean water to 2,000 residents per day.
