Going Green: Water-Purifying Systems

With our mission to tread lightly, we have installed water purifying systems in our vehicles to offer our travellers the opportunity to refill their water bottles and we actively discourage our travellers from purchasing water or other drinks in single-use plastic bottles.

The system consists of a sediment, granular carbon and carbon block filter as pre - treatment and then an Ultra-Filtration membrane which filters down to 0.2 microns to remove bacteria and parasites. The water then flows through an inline carbon polishing filter before flowing to the tap. See pictures in the photo section.
