SunSpring Hybrid is a portable, solar and wind powered water purification system that utilizes UV to provide safe drinking water in regions without access to clean water services. Water is pumped, usually using a submersible pump, strained and filtered, and chlorinated all within the SunSpring. This water purification system aims to reduce incidences of water-borne diseases.

The SunSpring Hybrid systems produces 5,000-20,000 liters per day of microbiologically safe drinking water via a 5 Stage Filtration Process relying on similar membrane technology used by large-scale water filtration plants. The system has a built?in Power Station which is solar and wind powered. The SunSpring Hybrid requires minimal water pressure to operate efficiently and can accommodate standard or submersible pump options. The system is self-enclosed, weatherproof, and secure. Purchase includes the SunSpring Hybrid, a complete spare parts backpack, a tool kit, a maintenance kit, a chlorinator, 2 spring loaded faucets, a piping kit to hook it up, 10 extra pre-filters, and comes in an international shipping crate designed to be used as a scaffolding for setting up the SunSpring Hybrid.Interview with representative

Complete spare parts backpack, tool kit, and maintenance kit included with initial purchase; Additional pieces needed can be processed same day. Interview withrepresentative
Filters are expected to last 10 years. The system itself will last much longer if properly maintained (monthly maintenance encouraged). Complete 2-year warranty. Interview with representative
Manufacturer Specified Performance Parameters
Installation takes 2-4 hours, membranes physically block out and remove 99.999% of pathogens from water supply, significantly reduces colloids, turbidity, and organics, effectively treats ground, surface or cistern water sources at the point-of-entry, system is 92-98% efficient.Interview with representative
Vetted Performance Status
Tested and certified by the WQA Gold Seal Program according to the US EPA Microbiological Guide Standard.
If the system is not set up properly or the water is not potable even after intense purification, consuming the water may be a health risk.
Complementary Technical Systems
Chlorine could be added to the purification system to disinfect and add flavor to the water.
