The Filter of Hope water filter is a small solution to a big problem.

The Filter of Hope water filter is a small solution to a big problem.

The global water crisis affects more than 2 billion people. It’s a big problem that many organizations have tried to tackle by developing large (and expensive) water systems.

Filter of Hope provides clean water to families in an entirely
 different way—one home at a time

We leverage the same technology used in kidney dialysis—hollow fiber membranes.

“Hollow fiber membranes” sound sort of complicated, but they’re actually quite simple—and remarkably effective.

Here's how they work:

Made to Filter

Each small water filter is packed with tiny, hollow, perforated tubes. The perforations are just 0.1 micron in diameter.

Cleans the Water

Dirty, contaminated water enters the tubes, passes through the holes, and exits the filter as crystal clear, clean water!

Removes Bacteria

Harmful bacteria and microorganisms are simply too large to fit through the holes, so they remain inside the filter casing and are then removed by routine back-flushing.
