Small Utah Company Disrupting the Water Filter Industry

June 07, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
June 7, 2016 - Renovo Water, a small water filter company located in Salt Lake City is making some serious inroads in the water filter industry. Renovo Water released their MUV Adaptable Water Filter on Kickstarter and they have already raised over $50,000 with 16 more days to go on their campaign.

Renovo Water is trying to take advantage of an industry that seems comfortable resting on its old technology.

"Not only did we develop a unique and adaptable filter system, but we've also been sure to develop and use the latest in filter technology. One of our initial filter releases uses a technology we call Nanalum. This is a material born in NASA labs and is essentially a nano-technology that is ideal for filtering everything from chemicals to bacteria and even viruses while still maintaining high flow rates," says Daniel Beck, Renovo Water's president.

MUV allows the user to control how the filter is used. It can be used simply in a water bottle to remove metals, chlorine, or negative taste from municipal water. Or you can combine more than one of the MUV filter modules and you can filter water that could be potentially life-threatening if not properly filtered. Part of their campaign is to educate their customers on the dangers found in water.

"Many filters on the market today have misled their customers on what their filter will actually do. LifeStraw has promoted their filter as a survival water filter, but their filter is only made of hollow-fiber. Hollow-fiber works through size exclusion and only blocks bacteria and protozoa," says Daniel. "It doesn't do anything to block or remove chemicals, metals, or viruses."

According to Renovo Water, MUV blocks and/or removes all of the following from drinking water:

  • Heavy Metals - Iron and lead
  • Chemicals - Chlorine, arsenic, fertilizers, pesticides, diesel fuel, and more
  • Microbiology/Bacteria - Giardia, E. coli, Cryptosporidium, Protozoan Cysts
  • Viruses - Hepatitis A, Polio, Typhoid, enteroviruses, and more
  • Sediment Removes bad taste and dirty color from water

  • With water contamination being so prevalent in the news lately it is no wonder that people are flocking to support a company that is innovating with new technology to ensure water is safe to drink. There is still time for you to support their Kickstarter campaign by visiting:

    Based in Utah, Renovo Water's team is made up of outdoor adventurers experienced in drinking backcountry water. Unsatisfied with current water filters on the market, they spent three years developing, designing, and testing to create a water filter that meets the needs of every type of adventurer and stands the test of time to deliver clean, safe water with every use.
