What is the best drinking water system to be used in poor countries?

    There are two ways to get clean water (from a source of dirty/ contaminated/non-potable water [see note at bottom]). 1 — build a treatment facility and allow the water to be processed, filtered, and cleaned by the use of filters and chemicals. or 2 — filter and purify the water by some other means, without the use of a treatment facility.

    Although the best water program for any developing nation would be to build a water treatment facility, these nations do not have the economic means to do so (which is where we’ll come in one day)… but for the time being, in place of the prospect of building them (or teaching them how to build and helping to finance the project) a functional water treatment plant, the best option is probably the P & G Water Purification Packet.

    Made by the same company which makes PUR water filters, this packet of chemicals is added to dirty water, then wait about 20 minutes, filter the water (to remove the remaining, larger particles) and you have drinkable, non-contaminated water! Check out this amazing quote:
    “Since 2004, P&G, the PUR brand and our partners have proudly shared over 1.6 billion liters of clean water with people in need. And now we have an even more ambitious goal: to share more than four billion liters by the year 2012.”

    Note: you can also get water from the ocean via an expensive process of de-salination or from a freshwater source like a spring, a rain water fed river, or even a geyser, but these are extremely rare in some parts of the world, especially where the climate does not permit it, and where economic conditions are so bad that they have no way of building a plant.
