MSR's Plan to Provide Clean Drinking Water for Puerto Rico

MSR's Plan to Provide Clean Drinking Water for Puerto Rico

The MSR SE200 Community Chlorine Maker is enabling communities in Puerto Rico and Mexico to create chlorine for safe water treatment on the spot. Source: GoFundMe Widespread devastation caused by hurricanes and earthquakes in Puerto Rico and Mexico have left hundreds of thousands of families without access to basic survival essentials, including safe drinking water.  So how do you get safe water to people in need? You empower them to make it. MSR now just needs to get its devices to Puerto Rico, as well as areas of Mexico that are recovering from recent earthquakes. To that end, the company is raising funds on GoFundMe.  How MSR’s Community Chlorine Maker helps: Just one Community Chlorine Maker creates enough chlorine on the spot in 5 minutes to treat up to 200 liters of water. All it needs is water, salt and a bit of power from a 12v battery. With the simple push of a button, users create their own chlorine for water treatment. Chlorine is powerful enough to kill disease-causing microbes, preventing illnesses such as cholera, dysentery and typhoid. However, in areas struck by disaster, chlorine is often unavailable or expensive due to the difficulties relating to transport and degradation. The SE200 Community Chlorine Maker is making safe water a reality.
