How to Use the MadiDrop+

MadiDrop+ Updated Instructions for Use.png

Designate a covered drinking water container with a spigot to limit contamination from hands and other external sources. Use the MadiDrop+ in a 10-20 liter water storage container and leave it there. Water added daily is continuously treated.


Best Practice Recommendations:

  • Moderate turbidity does not affect the performance of the MadiDrop+, but may affect taste. Remove dirt and turbidity using any filtration technique, including pouring water through a piece of folded laundered fabric.  
  • Leaving some unconsumed water in the container will help disinfect the replacement water.  However, it is recommended to fully drain the water storage container at least once per week.
  • Clean the drinking water container as needed to remove accumulated sediment. Remove and rinse the MadiDrop+ and rinse the container.

Under circumstances where total bacterial levels are ‘High’ or ‘Too Numerous to Count’, the MadiDrop+ may require more time (24 - 48 hours in some cases) for total disinfection. 

Important Observations:

  • The MadiDrop+ does not remove turbidity, inorganic/organic material, arsenic, fluoride, nitrates, lead, sodium/saltwater, or other compounds and pollutants commonly found in water.
  • Chlorinated drinking water will not damage the MadiDrop+ or affect disinfection capabilities, but discoloration may occur.
  • The MadiDrop+ does not dissolve in water. The ceramic is engineered to withstand an aqueous environment.
