WaterStep staff and volunteers talk about packing to send 60 water purifiers to Cebu City, Philippines. There WaterStep is setting up a training center to teach the installation, operation, and maintenance of the M-100 Chlorine Generator, a water purifier that can produce up to 10,000 gallons of safe water daily, providing safe water to up to 1000 people, using only a handful of salt and a car battery.

I have a village in the Philippines I am currently helping out as they start a new business venture, making coconut oil to tey and help get their family out of poverty. I would love to know what it would take to get them set up with a purifier? Can anyone set it up or do you need to be trained? How much can 1 set up purify daily?
