The SeaPack emergency
desaliantion system produces .5 liters of drink from each of the five four oz. syrup charges that comes with the system. In total, the SeaPack produces 2.5 liters of drink from the 20 oz of syrup that comes with the system. Additional bottles of GOO as you like to call them can be purchased.
The reason that people purchase
this system for their life rafts (over 500 in the past six months) is due to the fact that the SeaPack weighs far less and consumes far less volume than the drink that it produces. Not too many people are able to store 2.5 to 7.5 liters of drink in their life raft case or in their ditch bag.
Handheld systems are nice, but the fact of the matter is that they are expensive. Each RO system costs 8 to 9 times as much as a SeaPack. Our study conducted in 2006 showed that less than 5% of boaters would spend the $800 required for an RO hand pump system.
If you are a Seal (frogman) then perhaps you can appreciate the fact that our systems allow you to collect water at a resource and quickly leave the watering hole. The system then automatically filters the water into drink so you can keep on the move and looking for bad guys. The US military loves these systems: Expedition Water Filtration System
It produces 25 times the weight in drink as what the systems weighs. Perfect for your ruck...

PS. We have a new system that creates infant formula from filthy water. Pretty cool for keeping AIDS from transfering from mother to child from breast milk. These systems weigh nothing compared to shipping
formula in trucks or planes.
