Water Purification Still
Using only the sun, the AquaCone will make clean drinking water from virtually any source - including the ocean! Put it out on a lake, tow it behind a canoe or kayak, even extract water from plants or damp earth! This still packs small, has no moving parts or expensive filters to replace, and requires no electricity, fuel, or even elbow grease! Best of all, the water is distilled - the highest level of purification available. The AquaCone is not only perfect for camping, it's a great addition to any emergency preparedness kit!

Water is the most essential ingredient of life. Without clean water, one risks illness, disease, even death. Yet, nearly all freshwater - just 1% of the water on Earth - is contaminated. The contaminants range from viruses, bacteria, and worms to industrial chemicals like PCBs, pesticides, heavy metals.
There are many situations where treated water is not available - from camping and kayaking to natural disasters. It's a challenge to deal with all the contaminants one might encounter in these situations.
Luckily, there is a solution - Solar Distillation. This process extracts pure water from contaminated sources, using only the sun. It allows you to make fresh water from almost any source - even sea water.
Solar Solutions has leveraged the flexibility of the process to create the most flexible solution to water quality problems available - our Aqua Cone. It's fully portable, makes plenty of water, requires only the sun for power, can remove a vast range of contaminants, has no moving parts, and operates completely automatically!

Solar Water Pasteurizer
Pasteurization technology was invented by Louis Pasteur in 1867, but to date efforts to develop a small, extremely low cost, easy-to-use solar pasteurizer have failed to yield a viable solution for mass distribution. The AquaPak represents a significant breakthrough in this technology.
Made from low cost polyethylene plastic (also used in food preparation boiling bags) with UV inhibitors added, and air-filled bubble pak sheeting (originally developed for the packing industry), the AquaPak can heat water to temperatures beyond 70 degrees Celsius, a temperature that will kill all waterborne pathogens (bacteria, viruses, parasites) using only sunlight. By maintaining this temperature for specified time periods, the AquaPak kills a variety of pathogens present in contaminated drinking water. The edges of the plastic layers are bonded using medical sealing technology developed for use in blood and IV bags.
In tests conducted by BioVir Laboratories, San Francisco, CA, on virus contaminated water and by Environmental Engineering Laboratories, San Diego, CA, on bacterial pathogens, the AquaPak eradicated over 99.99% of the pathogens present.
The AquaPak employs a reusable sealed glass tube indicatorcalled a WAPIfilled with colored wax at one end that melts when heated to the required temperature, indicating the start of the pasteurization process. Depending on the availability of sunlight throughout the day, an AquaPak can produce 5 gallons of water per day, enough safe drinking water for a family of four.
