Making Swamp Water Drinkable

Meet Mark Rober, a man who enjoys science engineering. He used some powder that has a flocculant in it to make swampy water drinkable. It can be used in situations where people don’t have access to drinking water. Then he met up with Bill Gates and talked about why we should help poor countries.

Mark shows us how a small packet of powder can clean a big source of water. The P&G purifier of water powder makes it where unclean muddy water is drinkable. One packet of the powder can clean 2.5 gallons of water. Mark will inform you of how it works, who invented the powder, and why it is helping so many people. Over 1 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water.

The packet of powder separates the mud from the water making it safe to drink. This is helping change the world. It is amazing to watch the process of how it works. You will be able to learn about how this small packet is saving so many people.

P&G has provided more than 14 billion liters of clean water to people in need around the world. P&G scientists invented the P&G Purifier of Water technology while attempting to clean dirty laundry water. Engineered to be a mini water treatment plant purifies dirty water into clean drinkable water in only 30 minutes.

The powder is known to eliminate disease-causing microorganisms, remove more than 99.99999% of common waterborne bacteria, 99.99% of common waterborne viruses and 99.9% of protozoa. The tiny packet can reduce diarrheal disease incidence in the developing world by up to 90%, remove dirt and other pollutants, and make clean drinking water for the entire family, including infants.
