Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Cook Islands
The Cook Islands are composed two groups of islands in the South Pacific Ocean, about half way between Hawaii and New Zealand, about 1,000 km east of Niue.
They have a population of just over 11,000.
The lowland forests have been converted through human use. The forests on the upper slopes of Rarotonga may be representative of the original montane forests of the Cook Islands. Merlin divided these forests into three principal forest types. The first two are classified as montane rain forest, and the third as cloud forest.

The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.
Pure Aqua provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Cook Islands’ water resources.
Cook Islands’ main water resources are:
- Surface water “is water from river, rain water, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Media Water Filters, Brackish Water RO.
- Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems
- Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Media Water Filters, Chemical Dosing, UV Sterilizers.
- Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softeners, Media Water Filters
Pure Aqua manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
