SODIS - Safe Drinking Water in 6 Hours

Solar water disinfection - the SODIS-method - is a simple procedure to disinfect drinking water. Contaminated water is filled in a transparent PET-bottle or glass bottle and exposed to the sun for 6 hours. During this time, the UV-radiation of the sun kills diarrhoea generating pathogens. The SODIS-method helps to prevent diarrhoea and thereby is saving lives of people. This is urgently necessary as still more than 4000 children die every day from the consequences of diarrhoea.

You can learn more about this simple and innovative method and download resources from the SODIS Website.  You can download the Manual here (88p; 5.3MB)
