“Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink”

The water crisis in Flint, MI, Cleveland, OH, New Jersey and rumors of many other places has prompted Just Us Enterprises – Emergency Disaster Preparedness to provide cost effective countertop water filtration and purification systems for everyone.

The Water Problem

Water you can see, hear, smell, and touch but too toxic to drink.
Water you can see, hear, smell, and touch but too toxic to drink.

People everywhere, especially those in older cities and towns with deteriorating water supply systems, are concerned about lead and other harmful contaminants leaching into the water that we drink, cook and wash with.

Authorities are trucking in millions of plastic bottles of water to those areas affected by the water crises. The result will be millions if not billions of plastic bottles in landfills because of the fact some areas do not require or do not enforce recycling. This much plastic will additionally add to the toxic waste due to its manufacturing process and add to the already overburdened landfills. The cost of recycling by waste removal services and the limited recycling facilities will only incur more expense.

The ultimate burden, caused by the inept authorities in charge of protecting the people, will be passed on to those who can least afford the bill. The result will be in the form of higher water bills, higher landfill charges and higher taxes.

The Burden

If you have an average family of four, and each person uses only one gallon of water to drink, brush their teeth, rinse their vegetables and wash dishes that results in 28 one-gallon plastic bottles per week. Obviously, that is not nearly enough to bathe, water plants and put down for pets. At the time of this writing, the water crisis in Flint, MI has continued for 172 days (about 24.6 weeks). Therefore, for this family of four using the recommended minimum amount of water (1 gallon per day per person) times four members’ times 24.6 weeks (28x1x24.6), they will have contributed 688 one-gallon plastic jugs to the waste problem. Now to go a step further, take the estimated number of people in Flint, MI, approximately 100,000 people, and multiply  100,000 x 1 (gal per day) x 172 days. The result is 17,200,000 single usage one-gallon plastic bottles. Surely, if someone cooks a box of pasta, that will skew the entire math in an exponential way.

The Solution

We have contacted our water filtration and purification manufacturer to assist in helping those who need more water and who want to reduce the amount of needless plastic waste. Both our Water Filtration System and the Water Purification Systems reduce the amount of lead by greater than 90% and removes at least 160 other contaminants. These temporary systems are a countertop unit with two dedicated filters having a total of eight filtration/purification stages.

Each system will filter or purify up to 1,710 gallons of water, a little more than thirty-one 55-

gallon drums. This equates to the elimination of 1,710 plastic one gallon jugs or 12,951 average size plastic drinking bottles (128 ounces in a gallon/16.9 ounces in an average size water bottle = 7.57 plastic bottles per gallon [1,710 gal x 7.57 bottles=12,951]). That is only one water filtration system! Imagine the benefits of many systems. The impact on the environment would be lessened, the strain on landfills and recycling centers will be less costly, and the economic impact to homeowners will be eased.

Order your Water Filtration System or Water Purification System while the cost is still competitive and before everyone that puts a coffee filter in a bottle claims to have a better system. Unlike the water authorities in Flint and other cities, NASA, the Red Cross, the Peace Corps and U.S. Embassies worldwide rely on our systems because of this advanced water purification technology.

Remember, your own Emergency Disaster Preparedness Plan is your key to survival, and your survival depends on how well prepared you are.
