Aqua Sun manufactures the Responder A Portable, 12-volt Powered Water Purification Systems for Remote Applications. This system has the capabilities of producing cleaner and safer drinking water from almost any creek, stream, pond, well, lake or most any fresh water source at a volume production rate of 1 gallon (3.7 liters) per minute where water purification impractical or unattainable. For continuous water purification production a 15 ft long 12-volt electrical power cord is provided with a cigarette lighter plug and removable battery jumper cable clips that can be plugged into any car, truck, boat, plane, generator or any 12-volt electrical power supply source. This System does require a 12 volt electrical power source. There is no need for chemical additives. Water volume flow rates can be increased by using a specially designed manifold (optional) which allows 5 systems to be connected together to increase water volume production amounts to 5 gallons (18 liters) per minute or greater.


These Portable, 12-volt Powered Water Purification Systems pull the water from the source and through a Sediment Pre-Filter to remove sand, grid and large debris. The water is then pushed through a Carbon Block Polishing Filter that has the capabilities of removing Giardia and Cryptosporidium Cysts, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma Cysts, Schistosomiasis, Herbicides, Pesticides, Trihalomethanes (THMs), certain Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs), Chlorine and Chlorine By-Products, Sediment, Bad Taste, Odors, Color, Smell, and many other Harmful Chemicals and Contaminants down to a 0.5 micron. The polished filtered water is then channeled past an Ultraviolet Disinfecting Light Process that has the ability to kill Bacteria, Viruses, Typhoid Fever, Coliform, Dysentery, Cholera, Infectious Jaundice, Hepatitis and Influenza Virus, E-coli, Enteric Fever and many other unwanted microorganisms to a 99.999% purity.


Life expectancy of the Carbon Block Filter with clear incoming water is approximately 10,000 gallons or 1 year.

The Ultraviolet Light life expectancy under normal usage is 12 to 18 months.


The Responder A system is 22" wide x 18" long x 10" deep and has an approximate weight of 35 lbs.

This System is enclosed in a dent-resistant, molded resin briefcase style design.


This system comes in 2 different powered models:

RESPONDER S:   combination of solar panel & battery (provided) and 12-volt auxiliary powered operating capabilities.

RESPONDER A: 12-volt auxiliary powered operation only (solar panel and battery not provided). Purified water volume

production rate is 1 gallon (3.7 liters) per minute; up to 720+ gallons (2664+ liters) per day (up to 12+ hours per day).

Color:  Black.

We can design for your needs.


This System is approved for air shipments inside and outside the continental United States.

All water contact components carry a NSF Approval Rating and the ultraviolet light carries a Certificate of Analysis.

The filter and UV light manufacturers are members of the Water Quality Association.

Removes ground water sediment, sand and large debris and protects the carbon block filter from premature clogging. Can be wash off.  APPROXIMATE FILTER LIFE EXPECTANCY depends on how dirty incoming water is or 1 year maximum.



Removes and reduces giardia lamblia and cryptosporidium cysts,  volatile organic chemicals "VOC's" pesticides and herbicides, turbidity reduction, sediment, color, bad taste and odors such as hydrogen sulfide "rotten egg smell" and many other microorganisms down to a 0.5 micron. This Carbon Block Filter polishes the water crystal clear for refreshing good tasting water. This filter is made entirely from FDA-compliant materials.

APPROXIMATE FILTER LIFE EXPECTANCY 10,000 gallons / 37,000 liters or one year of clear incoming water maximum.



Clean, safe and natural UV light rays have the ability to kill the bacteria and virus to 99.999 % purity without any harmful side effects much like chemical agents normally added to drinking water. The ultraviolet range is ideal for killing Micro-organisms such as E-coli, Coli form, Cholera, Legionnaires Disease, Hepatitis Virus, Typhoid Fever, Dysentery, Infectious Jaundice, Influenza, Enteric Fever and many other unwanted Microorganisms.

APPROXIMATE UV BULB LIFE EXPECTANCY 8000 hours, or approx 12 – 18 months.
