COLDWATER, Mich., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Clean, fresh water is an everyday necessity and a major concern for emergency and disaster relief organizations. Though there are many water purification products on the market, only Purinize water purifier solution is scientifically proven to reduce hundreds of contaminants while being completely safe for long-term, continuous use.
On January 9, 2014, 4-Methyl-1-cyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) was spilled into the Elk River in Charleston, West Virginia, contaminating the water supply of over 300,00 residents. An independent EPA-certified lab demonstrated Purinize's ability to reduce the chemical MCHM concentration by 99.9 percent after 48 hours of treatment. "With modern industrialization, concerns about freshwater go beyond micro-organisms like Giardia and Cryptosporidium," said a company spokesperson. "Our lakes, rivers, and streams are contaminated with agricultural chemicals, industrial pollutants, hazardous waste, heavy metals, disinfectants and their byproducts, and even pharmaceutical drugs." Only Purinize's patented water purifier solution addresses all of these contaminants.
Many water treatment products contain toxic chemicals like chlorine dioxide, chlorine, and iodine, which are only effective for reducing certain waterborne pathogens like Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and E-Coli. What sets Purinize apart from these water treatment products is its ability to reduce waterborne pathogens as well as hundreds of other contaminants, such as industrial chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, heavy metals like arsenic and lead, pharmaceuticals like steroids and antibiotics, and disinfectants.
Consisting of concentrated mineral salts and purified water, Purinize is 100 percent non-toxic and free of synthetic chemicals. Other portable water treatment products use chemicals like chlorine dioxide, which rapidly decomposes into the toxic disinfection byproducts chlorite and chlorate. The toxicity of these chemicals necessitate that they be used as a short-term solution; extended use could potentially cause side effects such as mouth, esophagus, or stomach irritation. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, extended use could cause anemia for many years. "Purinize is safe to use anytime, anywhere."
Designed specifically for emergency as well as long-term water treatment and storage, Purinize is ideal for outdoor activities, travel, emergency survival, and disaster relief. Purinize produces no harmful byproducts and poses no risk to humans, animals, or the environment. Additionally, Purinize can keep water purified indefinitely, unlike other water treatment products, which rapidly disappear from stored water. And, even the taste and smell of water can be improved by Purinize. "Our product is the safest and most effective water treatment available."
Purinize is a company made up of like-minded individuals dedicated to providing affordable and effective solutions for the world's rapidly growing water crisis. The company's mission is to develop water purification products for human water consumption that also cause no harm to the environment. For more information, visit Purinize.com.
