THE SURVIVAL BAG™ “Any Ditch Will Do!!”
What is The SURVIVAL BAG™? Contaminated, dirty, unsafe water is poured in the top opening of the bag and clean water flows out through the cartridge to deliver guaranteed bacterially safe water for use. Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts, Salmonella, Campylobacter, E.coli and even Viruses are destroyed. Scientifically proven (see Hills Laboratory testing protocol and test results) to safeguard grossly contaminated water and render it safe to drink with NIL bacteria, NIL cysts and 99.97% of viruses destroyed.
TheSURVIVAL BAG™has a 1 micron cloth bag filter inside a heavy dutyPVC outer bag. The bag filter removes all cysts, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium as well as sediment and can be reversed for cleaning. The bag holds approx. 10 litres of water which is gravity fed through a purification cartridge. The unit produces 15 litres per hour at 22°C, of safe drinking water from microbiologically contaminated source waters. The cartridge life is over 9,000 litres before replacement. The single cartridge uses the MCV® Iodinated resin and Iodosorb® iodine scavenger developed by ‘Water Security Corp.’ Nevada, U.S.A. These are both ‘Space Certified Technologies’ and used by NASA for water purification on all Space Shuttles. Recently, Water Security Corp. was inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame for their innovative work in water purification. CERTIFIED TECHNOLOGY

TESTMETHODOLOGY Methodology: Bag Filter / MCV® Iodinated Resin Cartridge Water Treatment Trial - November 2006 Analytical testing conducted by Hill Laboratories Microbiology Department. Christchurch, New Zealand. The trial was set up by Sue and Russell Kelly from World Wide Water Ltd™, with the analytical testing for Escherichia coli carried out by RJ Hill Laboratories Ltd and the analytical testing for phage levels carried out by Watercare Services Ltd. Barbara Müller (Section Manager) from Hill Laboratories observed this trial in its entirety. A Bag Filter / MCV® Iodinated Resin Cartridgetreatment system was used for the treatment of water of varying quality. The system first preliminarily filters the water by passing it through a bag incorporating a filter mesh of 1 – 2µm. From the bag the water passes through an in-line cartridge containing activated carbon / MCV® Iodinated resin, then through Iodosorb® and more carbon before being collected for use. Rather than seeding water samples with a laboratory strain E.coli, the trial was carried out using raw sewage mixed into river water. This was done to ensure that the trial represented as close to a real field situation as possible. By using raw sewage and river water the trial simulates what may happen in a real emergency situation where water of drinking quality becomes contaminated with large volumes of raw sewage. Raw, untreated sewage was collected from the Bromley Sewage treatment plant, Christchurch. A 5% sewage / river water mix was created in a 25 Litre tank with a pump attached, capable of pumping 2.75 LPM. The pump was used to mix the contents of the tank for 40 minutes. A sample of the 5% sewage / river water mix was taken after mixing was complete. The 5% sewage / river water mix was passed through the treatment system at a rate of 200cc per minute. A sample was taken after the in-line cartridge Iodinated resin treatment

Apart from oxygen, water is the most basic requirement for survival. Following an earthquake, major flooding or any other disaster, clean safe drinking water is one of the most urgent necessities for survival. When necessary the human body can survive many days without food, but only 3-5 days without water. With electricity disrupted, water pumps will not be working in towns and cities. Broken water and sewerage pipes mean that water may be available but it will not be safe to drink or use. Village water sources will be contaminated. TheSURVIVAL BAG™provides over9000 litres of safeguarded water at a flow of 15 litres per hour at 22°C. TheSURVIVAL BAG™weighs lessthan 2kg and is easily portable. The orange tube can be used to scoop unsafe water and pour it into the bag. The smaller end can be used to receive the safe water. The cord on the top of the bag has been designed to have multiple uses, i.e. can be used as a tourniquet to stop bleeding, as a part of a splint, or in many other emergency situations. Over 9000 litres of SAFE water
The SURVIVAL BAG™ / Bottled Water Comparison 12 pallets of bottled water as pictured, weighs approximately 7500kg and provides approximately 6900 Litres of water .
Water is heavy! Every litre of water weighs 1 kilogram. • 1 carton of tenSURVIVAL BAGS™(270cmx 630cm x650 cm) weighs only 21kg. • TenSURVIVAL BAGS™can safely treat over 90,000litres of water! • IndividualSURVIVAL BAGS™have been successfullyairdropped from 110 feet into water without damage or breakage.
SURVIVAL BAG™ CAPACITY • The United Nations/World Health Organisation (UN/WHO) recommend a minimum water requirement for survival of 2 litres per person, per day (LPP/PD), with an optimal figure of 5-7 LPP/PD. • At 2 LPP/PD, oneSURVIVAL BAG™would satisfy the daily needs of 180 people. • At 5 LPP/PD, oneSURVIVAL BAG™would satisfy the daily needs of 72 people.
