We are renting a vacation home in Guatemala. In the kitchen is a free-standing water filter which holds 22 liters of water. It was already filled when we arrived and we simply top it off with the non-potable Guatemalan tap water as we use it. I did some research on the product and it's quite interesting. I found a Mexican site for the product as well (https://ecofiltro.mx/) but have never seen it locally. While many of us have UV or other water treatments in our homes, the average Mexican household does not. The waste of materials and energy in the constant delivery of garrafones may one day end in Mexico. https://ecofiltro.com/en The filtering unit is produced out of 3 natural materials, clay, sawdust and colloidal silver. Together these materials have the following characteristics: Clay creates micro channels within the inner walls of the filtering unit and catches all contaminants that the water contains, such as solids, BACTERIA AND PARASITES. Sawdust becomes activated carbon and removes the bad smell, taste and turbidity of water coming from any source (stream, river, well, lake or pond). Colloidal silver is impregnated on the surface of the ceramic filter after it has been fired in the kiln. Colloidal silver is a bactericide used worldwide to purify water and has no side effects. This serves as a second protector to neutralize the contaminants.
