theBlackBox Series filtration systems are designed and produced by Better Things LLC. Leveraging proven hollow fiber membrane filters to filter source groundwater to 99.99999% pure. This series of filters are scalable from personal use to community-wide needs. Our design uses a double filtration system with automatic backflushing, which guarantees clean water production, optimizes filter performance, and maximizes longevity. With the automatic system maintenance, the systems can operate for 7-10 years (pending your water turbidity) without intervention. Simple and effective, point of use, clean water for just pennies a day for the life of the filter system. Pure water can be a reality across the globe.

theBlackBox High Volume Water Filter

The first unit of the series, it was developed out of the first-hand need for reliable, clean water to a church and education center in Guatemala. The system offers up to 32 LPM (10 GPM) or 46,000 LPD (12,173 GPD), which is enough to support an entire school of up to 1,000 kids. Installation typically is less than 30 minutes. A solar power option ensures functionality, even without a reliable power grid. 

theBlackBox Ultra Volume Water Filter

When infrastructure isn’t in place and a more centralized filtration system is required for even larger demands the BlackBox Ultra Volume (BBUV) scales with the need. Designed to stand-alone or used in multiple groupings, the BBUV system can be tailored to the specific job.  One BBUV can filter up to 113LPM (30 GPM) and with two clusters of six units, the system can filter up up 1,362 LPM (360 GPM) or enough to support a community of 100,000 people.

theBlackBox Low Volume Water Filter

Designed for individual homes or places that need clean water with lower volume requirements, the BlackBox Low Volume (BBLV) system filters up to approximately 11 LPM (3 GPM). It works exceptionally well when connected to a drinking station as it can easily keep the unit full to support the needs of family and friends, even though the periodic backflushing cycle.
