The Outback™ Water Purification System for Emergency Preparedness, Survival, Camping, 

Food Storage Programs and Disaster Relief

Water, Water Everywhere and not a drop to drink...

 

Flooding often fouls municipal water systems. Earthquakes damage pipes and infrastructure causing water contamination. Power outages due to storms leave people without the electricity required to move water to their taps. Be it flooding, hurricane, tornado, earthquake or National Emergency, it is wise for everyone - every family - to have an alternative source of safe drinking water. Affordable, cost-effective and easy to use with discounted pricing available to groups and organizations, The Outback™ is the perfect emergency water source for you and your family.

The Outback™ is a gravity-powered™ system that purifies water from almost any fresh or moving water source. Rugged and durable, it was designed to be used not only during emergencies but for daily use when municipal systems are compromised or in undeveloped areas where systems are not available. 

The Outback's™ design has been proven effective by rescue, relief and religious organizations in Latin America, Africa and Asia and throughout the world. It is currently used by such organizations as the U.S. Government, Red Cross, Youth Mission, Boy Scouts of America, Samaritan's Purse, Mormon Church (LDS Church), NW HardRain Expeditions and a multitude of  Local Fire Departments. 

In addition to it's value during emergencies The Outback™ is now recognized as the most critical component of any well planned Emergency Preparedness - Survival or Food Storage Program. It's the missing piece of the food storage puzzle - eliminating the need to store huge quantities of water.

All this -- yet simple enough for a child to operate (How it works). Just pour water into the upper chamber through The Outback's™ pre-filter net to remove large particles of sediment and debris. The various Outback™ systems delivers 6 to 48 gallons of purified water per day (depending on system type and source water conditions). FEMA, Red Cross and other agencies recommend an emergency supply of at least 1 gallon of potable water per person per day. Most purification systems produce only enough water for an individual. The Outback™ will easily purify water for an entire family for the duration of an emergency.

How it Works

These portable water purification systems eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses, including E.coli, Cholera, Hepatitis and Polio. The "FF" systems' 0.5 micron filter removes cysts to levels exceeding EPA standards - achieving greater than 4 log (99.99%) reduction rate as tested by NSF (National Sanitation Foundation).  Additional purification can be gained through the use of chlorine or iodine. The "NF" systems (using the "Nano" pre-filter) go farther by removing viruses - achieving greater than 4 log (99.99%) virus reduction rate.

Just pour the raw or questionable water through the Pre-Filter net and into the upper pail or optional gathering pail. (The Source water container).

Stage 1:  Pre-Filter net removes debris and large sediment particles.

Optional Stage::  (Optional when using an OB-FF system) The addition of 1 Tablespoon of regular household bleach* or 1 iodine tablet** destroys bacteria and virus that may be present in the water. (Follow instructions for specific contact times which may vary based upon water quality.)

                 This is not necessary when using an OB-NF system because the NF7 filter removes viruses, along with bacteria and cysts.

Stage 2:  The Pre-Filter sleeve removes contaminants down to 5 microns in size.

Stage 3:   In OB-25NF - Nano Pre-Filter removes microbial contaminants such as bacteria and cysts and viruses.

                  In OB-25FF - Sediment Pre-Filter removes contaminants down to 0.5 microns in size, including the removal of bacteria and cysts.

Stage 4:   A Multimedia cartridge removes many industrial and agricultural contaminants as well as chlorine, iodine and bad tastes and odors.
