HaloSource Launches Range of HaloPure-Powered Finished Devices

New line is certified to WQA Gold Seal standards

HaloSource Inc. launched its line of finished devices for in-home point-of-use water treatment, powered by HaloPure drinking water disinfection technology.

HaloSource has two new product formats, a HaloPure-powered pitcher available in two performance models, and the HaloPure Waterbird, a gravity storage water purifier offered in three performance levels to suit a variety of water treatment needs by region and customer segment. All products will carry the Water Quality Assn. (WQA) Gold Seal and be certified to WQA’s ORD0901 standard. The ultra-high performance Waterbird Elite will also meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency P231 standard for drinking water purifiers.

"We have developed our range of HaloPure-powered finished devices in response to strong demand from our existing customers around the globe,” said John Kaestle, chief executive of HaloSource. “This is a natural progression from our existing custom technology and component supply business. We believe having a portfolio of off-the-shelf finished product solutions will help partners reach the market more quickly as they look to meet growing consumer demand for affordable and effective drinking water purification devices."

The HaloPure Waterbird, Waterbird Premium and Waterbird Elite are the product of extensive research into the needs of households in a variety of different markets, including India, China and Brazil, where there is a need for readily available, affordable clean water. According to HaloSource, the Touch-Lock technology in the purification cartridge makes it easy to replace at the end of life with a single unlock-lock action. The patented HaloPure-powered four-stage disinfection cartridge includes an end-of-life monitor with auto shutoff to ensure the freshest, safest water is on tap. A treatment capacity of 1,500 liters between cartridge changes and third-party validation ensures families are supplied with high quality water even when it is drawn from semi-drinkable water sources.
