Jon Grant, founder of the company stated “Since we started the company over decade ago we have helped provide safe and pure water for customers from walkers and leisure enthusiasts to those in the direst needs of clean water through humanitarian aid.  To say that our products have assisted in saving the lives of 10,000s would be an understatement.  Our Kickstarter project will help us develop our working prototypes of the Sentinel InLine Individual Water Purification Device, and get them formally approved against a standard called NSF International Protocol P248 to demonstrate that they meet military requirements.”

Based on the EPA Guide Standard and Protocols for Testing Microbiological Purifiers, P248 was developed by the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventative Medicine (ACHPPM) and NSF International to provide military personal with access to IWPDs that offer improved protection against waterborne microbiological pathogens in drinking water during field deployment operations.

Pure Hydration is an established developer and manufacturer of innovative IWPDs to the international humanitarian emergency aid, military, outdoor activities, and travel health markets.  The company is based in Farnham in Surrey, England.
