Aqua Sun International is no newcomer to the solar industry!

  • Aqua Sun has been manufacturing Solar Systems Since 1973
  • Aqua Sun has been manufacturing Water Treatment Systems Since 1987
  • Aqua Sun has been combining Solar and Water Treatment Systems Since 1990
  • Aqua Sun has engineered and installed over 500 active and passive solar systems in the Western United States

Aqua Sun International was formed to bring cleaner and safer drinking water to people in areas of the World where water purification systems and electrical power are typically impractical or unattainable. Aqua Sun began designing and building residential and commercial solar systems in 1973. It has engineered and installed over 500 active and passive solar systems and homes in the Western United States through the 1990's.

In 1986, Aqua Sun entered the water purification business by designing and installing them into their Solar Homes Building Program. The concept of combining solar energy and water purification into a single, completely self-contained water purification system was invented and developed by Aqua Sun in 1990.

This first Solar Powered Water Purification System was a portable system enclosed in a small carrying case. The current Responder S (approximately 50 lb. briefcase - size unit with wheels) can be set up in less than one minute and produce 1 gallon (3.7 liters) per minute and up to 100+ gallons (370+ liters) per day of cleaner and safer drinking water from most any creek, stream, pond, well, lake or most any fresh water (other than salt water) source.

In 1993, these systems were put into operation with white water rafting companies on the Colorado River on an evaluation basis. In 1995, after a lengthy study of the river water, the EPA and FDA approved the Aqua Sun System in a new pilot program for providing drinking water directly from the Colorado River to the rafting companies. The Coconino County Health Department in Arizona determined the system was the most effective water purification system in use on the Colorado River to date.

Since that time, Aqua Sun Systems both solar powered and residential and small commercial have been put into operation around the World. Aqua Sun International is committed to providing the most innovative self contained, portable and stationary solar battery & 12-volt powered water purifying systems on the market today. Our systems are designed to bring cleaner and safer drinking water to even the most remote areas of the World where water purification and electrical power are impractical or unattainable.

Our systems' water purification production ranges from 1 gallon (3.7 liters) per minute to 15,000+ gallons (55,500+ liters) per day.

Providing Clean Water to Remote Areas of the World

Millions of people living away from major cities live without clean, safe drinking water. This is due to the lack of electrical power to operate the water pumping and water purification equipment and is a major problem in Developing Third World Nations and Remote Areas of the World. Every minute in every day all over the World, men, women and children are getting sick or dying from drinking contaminated or polluted water.

Natural Disaster Relief

When Natural Disasters strike, the normal supply of drinking water can become quickly contaminated or shut down all together. By using the Aqua Sun Water Purification Systems, most any contaminated or polluted water sources can be converted to cleaner and safer drinking water for Disaster Relief. Drinking water is also a major concern for Tourist and Organizations that Travel around the World. These groups need to be assured that the water that they are drinking, whether it be transported by them, or consumed from the existing water supply be as safe and as clean as possible.

Aqua Sun has addressed this problem with a wide range of Personal, Traveling Portable Water Purification Systems for the Travel Industry. These Portable Systems are designed for the Traveler who travels into areas where electrical power is unattainable or impractical.

Aqua Sun International is committed to providing cleaner and safer drinking water to almost any situation anywhere in the World. Our solar experience since 1973 and being the Innovators of our Solar Powered Water Purification Systems for Remote Applications make the difference.
