Ease of Use
Many water systems have proved useless only because of the complexity of the
system itself. Locals will not use a system that proves too complex to setup,
operate and maintain. One true benefit of our filter is its ease of use and
maintainability. Our setup instructions are as follows:

1. Obtain a clean plastic bucket or container.

2. Use the hole cutter to drill a hole 1.5 inches from the bottom of the bucket.

3. Screw the connector, hose, and filter onto the bucket.

4. Fill the bucket with water from any source, lower the filter head below the
water line and let gravity do the rest.

The ease of operating this system makes it self-sustainable and dependable.

Together We Can Help End Waterborne
Illnesses and Deliver Hope
Together, we can make a difference. Let us join together in a line of humanity and sweep through
the world helping those who can't help themselves. With the aid of our contacts in places such as
Iquitos, Peru, you can help us put an end today to the needless suffering of a family from
waterborne illnesses such as cholera and botulism. Your gift of just $100 will provide a needy family
in a developing country with:

A Complete Water Filtration System - filter, hose, backwash syringe, filter hanger, and
bucket
Training on how to use and maintain the system
Information on basic sanitation and hygiene
The gift of clean water for YEARS
Access to the "Living Water", the good news of Jesus Christ

Since the filters can continuously be backwashed and re-used, they have an extremely long life
expectancy, 10+ years. That amounts to less than a penny a day to deliver these life
saving systems!

Delivering Hope One Bucket at a Time™

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to
drink ....."- Matthew 25:35

The installation of each water filtration device will present us with a unique opportunity to share
the good news of Jesus Christ, the “Living Water”, with countless unreached families.

Help us deliver the message of health, hope, peace, and salvation to those in need around the
world. Join us as we deliver this message one bucket at a time.

Let us join together in a line of humanity to help


those in need. Will you join with us?
