SAFETY HARBOR – Sawyer Products is working with multiple organizations to distribute approximately 20,000 bucket filtration systems and over 30,000 insect repellents to help with the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
These bucket adapter systems are used in over 80 countries around the world and can filter up to 500 gallons per day. The insect repellents that were sent include the family friendly 20 percent Picaridin spray which is effective on mosquitoes, ticks, and flies as well as our Permethrin Insect Repellent Treatment for clothing, gear and fabric which is odorless after drying and lasts for six weeks or six washes.
In addition to the standard 0.1 micron absolute bucket filtration systems, the company also is sending some of its brand new Sawyer Select Foam Filtration Systems which launch later this month and will remove chemicals and pesticides where water contamination levels are especially high.
The Sawyer manufacturing facility in Safety Harbor has also begun coordinating relief efforts in Haiti and other island nations affected by Hurricane Irma.
