Khlor Gen System
Our units have been taken to 45 countries, changing the lives of thousands of communities around the world.
Created in 2005 by John Hays, the Khlor Gen is a new approach to purifying water. This battery powered, solar charged device turns salt water in chlorine, which is then used to treat local, infected water. Our solution is incredibly more cost effective, portable, and easier to maintain than traditional water purification methods.
How is this different than other water treatment options?
The biggest difference is how we approach clean water. The most common methods include drilling a well, or using large purification systems to treat the water. These solutions are expensive, complicated to maintain, time consuming, and difficult to get to the areas in need.
Our system is created with the people who will be using them in mind. The biggest difference is the portability and functionality. You don't need a generator or any outside energy source as it is solar powered. It is also extremely simple to use and maintain. They can be up and running immediately.
How long will this system last?
With proper maintenance, a unit will last 5 years.
How does this actually purify the water?
The units creates a very strong chlorine solution from salt water. This chlorine is then used in the local water supply to kill 99.99% of contaminants.
Does this make the water clear or just purify it?
The main focus is killing the harmful bacteria. It will not filter out dirt or other particles (which can easily be done through a makeshift filter such as a shirt), but rather kills all bacteria which makes it safe to drink.
What is the shelf life of the chlorine?
The chlorine will be strong enough to kill bacteria for two weeks. After two weeks, it can be used for other things such as bug repellent, general disinfectant, or to wash clothes.
Can I buy a unit for you to take on your next trip?
Absolutely! We are currently raising funds to take 150 units to Southern Sudan. If you would like to buy a unit for us to take, just choose Hays Pure Water as your shipping option. We will also send you updates when the unit is delivered!
I want you to come speak and do a demonstration, is that possible?
Yes. We would love to come to your classroom or group and discuss Hays Pure Water. Please use the form on our contact page to get a hold of us.
This looks so easy, am I missing something?
There is always the possibility, but no. We have created this system with the end user in mind. That means easy to use and easy to maintain.
