First installation of life-saving water purification systems

The first of a new wave of filters to be sent to the Philippines was installed in the rural Barangay (village) of Dado, Alamada, in North Cotobato.  Prior to the installation Team Aleosan (an agency set up by the Balay Mindanaw Foundation) conducted meetings with the Barangay Council to assess, for instance, water pressure levels in the pipelines.

On 30 June 2014, Team Aleosan together with Ed Cox from DAI, facilitated an orientation to provide locals with information on the basics of the SkyHydrant Ultrafiltration System – how it works, maintenance, and how it will be sustained to maximise its use for up to ten years.  Sphere standards were also discussed to provide participants with an understanding of some considerations when selecting sites for SkyHydrant™ installation.
