The WaterQuip SOLAR-1 is a solar powered water purification system that cleans water using proven ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology and fine sediment and taste/odor filters. UV is a chemical free process which deactivates bacteria, virus, and protozoa by up to 99.99%, thus providing clean and safe drinking water which meets the World Health Organization’s and local health departments’ standards for potable water. The SOLAR-1 includes a high-efficiency water purification unit and a quality solar power system, mounted in a lightweight, powder coated aluminum cabinet for ultimate robustness and durability. Through its built-in 12 volt DC outlet and 5 volt USB outlets, the system also provides clean and reliable electrical power for all needs, e. g. electrical light and charging of mobile phones, laptops, radios, and others. The SOLAR-1 is easy to use and virtually no installation is required. Simply mount the cabinet on a wall and the solar panels on the ground or on a roof, connect the inlet and outlet water hoses, and start enjoying safe drinking water from rivers, lakes, shallow wells, ponds, rainwater harvesting tanks, etc. The primary power source of the SOLAR-1 is a deep-discharge, long-life AGM battery bank that ensures continuous operation of the water purification unit for extended periods of time. The batteries are charged by a high-quality crystalline solar panel array. The system has a built-in safety interlock that, in the unlikely event of a system malfunction, will sound an alarm, automatically shut down the pump, and close the water outlet to prevent further use of the system. Like all WaterQuip products, the SOLAR-1 is a reliable, high-quality product with an expected service life of at least ten years under normal operating conditions. It has been specifically designed for use in remote rural areas with poor or lacking infrastructure. Its rugged aluminum cabinet and all internal components effectively withstands dusty and wet climatic conditions.
