Yossi Sandak, the CEO of Watersheer, the Israeli company that developed the Sulis, explained, “Over 1.6 million children under the age of five die each year in the undeveloped world from drinking untreated water. What we have is a solution to reduce death in the world that is not a medical solution, but simply providing people with clean drinking water.”

According to Sandak’s partner, Ron Shani, the founder, chairman, and vice president of Watersheer’s R&D division, the Sulis system treats water from upper sources containing organic, biological, and chemical contaminates. “With Sulis, it’s simple, quick, and you don’t need any additional energy source. Anybody can do it. In a minute, you go from undrinkable water to pure drinking water.”

Sandak, a former general in the Israeli Air Force, added that another improvement is the taste of the water. “In a survival situation, you need to be drinking a lot of water. With other systems, the process creates water that tastes awful, so you end up drinking the minimum. With Sulis, you can drink freely, and the taste is excellent.”

Sandak added that the company is looking for investors to open a production plant in Sderot. They expect Sulis will cost no more “than a large coffee and cake at Starbucks.” Considering one Sulis cork can purify 1,000 liters [264 gallons] of water before being replaced, that’s quite a bargain!
