This family-sized, intermittent-use Hydraid® filter is based on a centuries-old slow sand filtration technology and grew out of work conducted in Nicaragua in the early 1990’s by leading water expert Dr. David Manz of the University of Calgary, Alberta. The Hydraid® filter has been extensively tested in laboratories at the University of North Carolina, University of Calgary, Grand Valley State University and elsewhere and the research consistently shows that the filters are effective, reliable and enjoy the highest end-user sustained adoption rates of all point-of-use water technologies. Health impact studies have demonstrated improved water quality in the field with a 95% reduction of E. coli and 59% reduction in diarrheal disease.
Point-of-use water systems require more than simple, effective technology to be effective in the field. Central Michigan University and the University of Virginia have been on the cutting edge in developing countries identifying best practices for Hydraid® water filter program implementation that result in the best performance and end-user adoption.
