Does the local or Indian nat'l government recognize UV/UF treated water as beneficial? If so, you could use that in your campaigns too! Best of luck going forward.

Hi United for Hope Team,

You are doing the right thing when it comes to clean water if you ask me! Aside from all the economic benefits to the community from operating a small enterprise around clean water, producing UV and UF filtered water is the way to go. This Hindu Times article points out the problems with RO -- it's really not nearly as healthy (doesn't have all the essential minerals and natural salts the body needs), and it's just so wasteful: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/patna/Reverse-osmosis-Need-or-waste/articleshow/46648223.cms
Kudos to you!!  KR
