A prior version of VillageWater has been demonstrated to remove more than 99.9999% of bacteria and more than 99.99% of viruses at flow rates up to 2,650 liters per hour from visually clear water at 25 degrees C under circumstances similar to the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s ("U.S. EPA") Guide Standard and Protocol for Testing Microbiological Water Purifiers during testing performed at The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA.

Increased dissolved solids, total organic carbon and turbidity, along with decreased temperatures, will reduce the effectiveness of this unit.
