The Tulip Filter Candles…… have been extensively tested throughout Europe, Asia and Africa, providing many millions of people with safe drinking water, using this Tulip Technology. The filters are being used and have been tested in places such as Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Malawi, Mozambique, Netherlands, Philippines, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. See test results here.
The candles are made from diatomaceous earth, treated with nano silver and contain active carbon. These properties will remove 99.99% of E-Coli (Bacteria), 99.99% of Protozoa (Parasite) and can improve the Turbidity (Clarity) of the water, by 99%. This all helps to prevent the water born diseases such as Diarrhea, Cholera, Giardia, Cryptosporidiosos, Typhus and Schistosomiasis.
Each candle package comes with the candle itself, an outer sleeve that can be used as an additional filter in heavily sedimented water, a scrubber cleaner and an end of life indicator. (If the plastic end of life indicator can fit around the candle, it is time to be replaced.)
