Bottle makes dirty water drinkable

The Life Saver bottleThe way fresh water is supplied to disaster-hit regions could be revolutionised after an Ipswich-based businessman invented a £190 ($385) bottle that makes foul-smelling water drinkable in seconds.

Michael Pritchard hopes that the bottle could be a life-saver for refugees in disaster regions where access to clean drinking water is vital.

However, the military are already latching on to his idea. Four hours after Mr Pritchard launched his new "Life Saver" bottle at the DESI defence show in London yesterday, he sold out his entire 1,000 stock. "I am bowled over," he said.

Military chiefs are excited because the bottles, which can distill either 4,000 litres or 6,000 litres without changing the filter, will have huge benefits for soldiers who hate drinking iodine-flavoured water.

Mr Pritchard's bottle can clean up any water - including faecal matter - using a filter that cuts out anything longer than 15 nanometres, which means that viruses can be filtered out without the use of chemicals.

This is such a great invention! I can definitely see how it is going to help so many people.

Looks like a great invention! But until it's marketed for the general public, we Average Joes have to make do with other kinds of water filtration systems that don't cost $400 a pop.
