Product description Brand name and product description

The Living Water™ Treatment System (LWTS™) is a small-scale water treatment plant. Similarly to municipal treatment facilities in developed countries, this unit relies on filtration and chemical disinfection for production of safe drinking water. Filtration physically removes particulate and bacteriological contaminants, while chemical disinfection neutralizes any remaining pathogens and ensures the treated water is safe to drink. When operated properly, the LWTS™ will provide a community with safe drinking water for many years.
