GLEN HEAD, NY, Jan. 10, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- David A. Conway, president and CEO of WaterChef Inc. reported that individual WaterChef shareholders have purchased an additional three PureSafe Water Station units, with a market value of $230,000, for the tsunami disaster relief effort in Southeast Asia.

These units will be deployed, along with the units purchased earlier, to southern India to provide pure drinking water for disaster victims displaced from their homes by the tsunami.

WaterChef has received a number of inquiries from interested parties and organizations since the first relief purchase was announced, and discussions with potential donors are ongoing.

The PureSafe Water Station is a self-contained, six-stage water purification system that produces up to 15,000 gallons of clean, healthy water per day from any source. The PureSafe destroys all living pathogens and handles a broad range of organic and inorganic water contaminants, producing pure water for less than half a penny per gallon. In addition to the core version of the PureSafe Water Station, WaterChef also markets versions of the PureSafe that provide up to 125,000 gallons per day, and units for ocean water desalination, heavy metals removal and the remediation of arsenic contaminated water.

WaterChef Inc. (www.waterchef.net) is headquartered in Glen Head, N.Y., and manufactures the PureSafe products in Bohemia, N.Y.
