Inspired by: Our researches for over 10 years and other researches’ data have it that over 85 million Nigerians depend on borehole/well water for drinking, sanitation and hygiene uses due to lack of public pipe borne water.
Over 50 million of them battle with unsafe borehole/well water as alarmingly analyzed to contain pathogens, heavy metals ions, suspended particles and salts without getting safe water.
Some of them boil water at high costs and environmental pollution, use filters, alum, disinfectants (Waterguard, WaterCare or waterSafe, Hypo/Bleach, etc - (Sodium Hypochlorite based water disinfectants) which only disinfects the unsafe water.
Buy "treated" water or use combinations, but these solutions leave one or more of the discovered contaminants unattended.

(1). Children under 5 years die in large numbers in Nigeria from waterborne diseases (typhoid fever, diarrhea, cholera, etc) caused by unsafe water and sanitation.
(2). A good number of adults also suffer from waterborne diseases (typhoid fever,
diarrhea, cholera, etc), and deaths by unsafe water and sanitation.
(3). Salt-activated high blood pressure/hypertension from constant drinking of
salt water.
(4). High cost of laundry and shortened lifespan of clothes by use of hard and
staining water.
(5). Skin problems.
(6). High medical bills from treatments of waterborne diseases.

WaterAid Nigeria (http://www.wateraid.org/ng) research shows that;
(A). "In Nigeria, around 45,000 children under five years old die every year from diarrhea
caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation"
(B). "57 million people in Nigeria do not have access to safe water"
(B). "Over 130 million people don't have access to adequate sanitation in Nigeria, two thirds of
the population"
Institute Water for Africa (https://www.water-for-africa.org/en/water.html) also states,
"At present, over 300 million people have no access to clean water in Africa, i.e. more than 40% the total population. Over 60% of the population have no access to sanitation. The growth of the population will increase the water consumption and water shortage will get worse."
In a bid to solve the above unsafe water problems found from my over 10 years experience, I researched, developed and manufactured this innovative solution, SaferEx - Multi-action Water Purifier.
