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. It is mobile and can easily be brought to the respective place of use. Nevertheless, thanks to its size and the filter surface it contains, the product can treat more than 1000 litres of clean water in 12 hours. If it is operated for more than 12 hours a day, the filter performance is even greater.
The application is just as simple as with the AQQAbag: water from a lake or a river is put into the filter box and filtered with a membrane. The AQQAcube can be placed in a fixed location or transported. However, transport is only possible when empty.
If you convert the costs for the filter, customs and shipping and the enormous filtering capacity, one litre of hygienically clean water costs less about 0.12 cents. By comparison, drinking water is sold in East African countries in plastic bottles of 1.5 litres each for about one euro. Thus, the product offers clean drinking water while saving a lot of money and 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.
