The Hurricane is:
Our portable water purification systems provide emergency drinking water quickly where it is needed most. Set up takes only minutes. Screw in a faucet, a hose, drop one end of the hose in some water and turn it on. It is that easy!
It seems that everything fails in an emergency when you need it most. The Hurricane was designed to run no matter what. Use almost any power source – 110/220 volts, car cigarette lighter, generator, solar panels, or wind generator. If that all fails, it will filter over 200 gallons (750 liters) on the built in battery.
No dangerous chemicals to measure. No mercury filled UV bulbs to break. The Hurricane provides up to 135 gallons (500 liters) per hour. That is enough to provide 540 people a gallon (3.75 liters) each*.
Each Hurricane™ portable water purification system is under 50 pounds (22.6 kg) and can bechecked as baggage on most airlines**. With a handy handle and wheels, it is easy to transport.
* According to FEMA, a normally active person needs at least one-half gallon of water daily just for drinking and that a gallon per day per person is necessary for emergencies.
** We are not aware of any airline or airport refusing to allow a Hurricane emergency water system to be checked as baggage, but please call ahead to be certain as airport rules are subject to change.
