The certificate is required for all foreign manufacturers of residential water treatment units
Bluewater has been awarded Ministry of Health (MOH) product certification for all three of its water purifier series in China: Cleone, Spirit and Pro.

Organization will emphasize "10-1-10" message in future marketing and fundraising campaigns
In an effort to emphasize that every $10 donation provides clean drinking water for one person for 10 years, Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) announced that the “10-1-10” message will be at the heart of all its future marketing and fundraising campaigns.
The UVT-LED transmittance water quality monitor is the first instrument of its kind to use efficient UV-C LED technology. The compact monitor delivers fast, accurate transmittance readings in the field, water treatment facilities or industrial settings. Simple to operate, with a clear backlit LED display, the unit takes automatic measurements every 60 seconds. Integrated wiping prevents fouling and buildup in all water conditions, with a self-calibration check to ensure continual accuracy.
The company will streamline its product offering under a singular brand
Viqua recently introduced its new brand identity. The introduction coincides with the company’s decision to simplify its product offerings in the marketplace and focus on building the Viqua brand.
This singular brand focus means the company will consolidate legacy brands UVMAX and Sterilight, an organizational change that General Manager Frank Profiti said will help drive product innovation and lay the foundation for market growth.
Three non-profits will equally share the cost of the project, which deploys hundreds of water filters in Kenyan communities
More than 10,000 Kenyans will be impacted by the newly created partnership and commitment of three organizations: Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF), Safe Water Team (SWT) and Safe Water Kenya (SWK). This is the first time these nonprofits have joined to provide clean, safe drinking water in Kenya. WWIF and SWT have teamed up in the past for projects in Ghana and the Dominican Republic.
The project was planned during a January conference call between SWT Executive Director Jim Bodenner, SWK Executive Director Don Arnold and WWIF Founder & CEO Guillermo Guzman.
The demonstration was part of an event launching the company's product range in China
Like many key waterways worldwide, Shanghai’s Huangpu River is chockablock with industrial and organic trash and probably the last place from which anyone would drink a glass of water. Yet that is just what Sweden’s Bluewater chose to do by pumping water directly up from the polluted waterway through one of its water purifiers and having chief executive Niclas Wullt drink a glass in full public view.
