WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
“Having carried 40 lb. Water filtration systems up steep dirt paths in Haiti and St. Lucia, I was skeptical about the science of the Ola system. I’ve looked into their scientific specs, state side lab testing (Summit Labs, ISO certified), (I couldn’t understand the Guatemalan testing results). My conclusion is that this device, when used properly with routine bleach cleaning and maintenance, is effective, elegant, and practical to at least log 6 (99.9999%) effective. USAID (US agency for international development) provided large water filtration systems to our hospital in St. Lucia and these were about the size of a small truck. What an innovation!”
How the OLA Filter … filters:
Inside the filter cartridge is a tightly bundled loop of hollow fiber membranes with microscopic pores that block bacteria, parasites, cysts, micro-plastics and sediments — leaving you with pure drinking water.
OLA Filter uses a mechanical filtration system that lasts for up to 10,000 gallons. If water is running through, it will be clean.
Protecting Against Disease: The OLA Filter removes the bacteria, cysts, parasites and helminths that cause: Dysentery, E. Coli, Salmonella, Cholera, Giardia, Tapeworm, Roundworm, flukes that cause Schistosomiasis and Dracunculiasis, Guinea Worm, Botulism, Leptospirosis, and Typhoid Fever. Filtered water helps you avoid the pain and cost of waterborne illnesses, so you can live your life.
Protecting Against Microplastics: This pollution means that we are ingesting a credit card’s weight in plastic every week. The OLA Filter removes 100% of harmful microplastics in your water.
How to Use
Install the filter on your 3/4″ faucet bibb with the faucet icon right side up.
Use with low or medium water pressure.
It’s that easy!
How to Clean
Flip filter on the faucet bibb and run water for 1 minute to flush out any sediment.
Mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar or bleach in 1 liter of water. Soak filter for 1 hour.
Return the filter and discard the first liter of water to remove any residual vinegar or bleach. The filter is now ready to use.
