Without water, life on earth would cease to exist. The human body contains on average anywhere from 55% to 78% of its weight as water, depending on age, sex, and environmental conditions as well as activity level. A person can only survive a matter of days without water. The quality and the purity of this water directly affects the health of the individual. On average, an adult needs to consume between one and a half to three liters of water a day. Under normal conditions safe drinking water is not a major issue in the developed world. But what do you do if you travel to some exotic location or go camping or backpacking in the great outdoors? How do you maintain a safe drinking supply then? Even worse, how do you maintain a safe drinking supply when the next disaster strikes, whether man made like an act of terrorism or a natural disaster like a hurricane, earthquake, or tornado? Are you prepared?
With this in mind, WPS4sale.com was developed to provide safe and effective alternatives for all of your water purification needs. Our main product is WPS1 which is based on the chemical compound sodium chlorite (NaClO2). When activated, this releases chlorine dioxide (ClO2). One activated drop will purify one gallon of water. For cloudy or more questionable water, up to five activated drops can be used per gallon of water.
According to the EPA, chlorine dioxide is used in 700 to 900 public water systems to treat potable water. (See 1999 Alternative Disinfectants and Oxidants Guidance Manual, ch 4 Chlorine Dioxide on our Documents Menu EPA Documents Section.) Chlorine dioxide has also been used for air disinfection, most notably in decontamination of buildings after the anthrax scare of 2001 and in New Orleans for mold eradication after Hurricane Katrina. Sodium chlorite and the resulting chlorine dioxide differ from the sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) that is used to treat most municipal water systems and does not give off the undesirable harmful byproducts that can be associated with sodium hypochlorite.
Our second main purification product is WPS2 or calcium hypochlorite Ca(ClO)2. This product produces hypochlorous acid (HClO) when added to water. In the form we carry, one 500 mg capsule of WPS2 will purify 11 gallons of water. Calcium hypochlorite can also be used to make a chlorine solution that can then be used for sterilization and cleaning purposes. Again hypochlorous acid does not have undesirable harmful byproducts that can be associated with sodium hypochlorite. It is therefore our position that either of these are better alternatives than sodium hypochlorite for water purification purposes. In keeping with the spirit of clean water and surviving disasters, we offer other products on our site that are complimentary to these ideals.
Our DMSO serves as a highly effective natural solvent that is not harmful to the environment. It works great as a paint stripper. Our living clay (aka Calcium Bentonite) is GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe by the FDA) and useful as a toxin adsorbent that has many applications that can come in handy during a disaster.
Our Diatomaceous Earth works well as a filtering agent, for pest control, and as an absorbent recommended by the United States Center for Disease Control for cleaning up toxic spills. Our Vortex Ocean Water is only cold filtered so that it maintains all of the living qualities found in the ocean. Because we believe in the need for pure, clean water even for fish, we provide this product.
