The bacteria retention rate has been certified by BCS, Florida, USA for the AQQAbag. The AQQAcube works according to the same principle. The core is our filter membrane. We have uploaded the certificate for the AQQAbag here.
You can see which types of dirty water the AQQAcube can handle in this overview.
The AQQAcube is a filter product that combines the advantages of the AQQAbag and the AQQAsystem. Thanks to its mobility, it can easily be transported to its place of use. Nevertheless, due to its size and the filter area it contains, the cube still can process more than 1200 liters of drinking water per day, or 400 liters in 8 hours of operation time.
The application is just as simple as with the AQQAbag: Water from a lake or river is fed into the filter box and filtered with a membrane. The AQQAcube can be placed at a fixed location or transported. Transport, however, is only possible when emptied beforehand.
The AQQAcube costs only 1273.30 euros. If you convert this amount to the enormous filter performance, one liter of hygienically clean water costs less than one cent. By comparison, drinkable water is sold in East Africa in plastic bottles of 1.5 liters each for about one euro. This means that the cube offers clean drinking water to a very low cost and no plastic waste.
After 6 months of continuous operation, the AQQAcube must be cleaned. We have uploaded instructions for this here. The cost of cleaning every six months amounts to about 100 euros.
