OAKLAND PARK, Fla., June 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WaterPure International™, Inc. (OTCBB:WPUR), the only US based manufacturer and marketer of state of the art atmospheric water generators (AWG) that produce 99.99% pure drinking water from air, announced today that the company has received a major order from a European distributor. The order calls for the first container as part of a 1,000 unit contract for WaterPure's™ cutting-edge whisper quiet WaterCycle™ G5 water generator over the next 24 months.

WaterPure™ CEO Paul S. Lipschutz said, "This is our largest European order to date and reflects the rapidly growing global interest for safe green sustainable alternatives to tap and bottled water. The WaterCycle™ G5 AWG unit has been under development during the past year. The new G5 is capable of producing 7-10 gallons a day of 99.99% pure water from air at whisper quiet sound levels.

"Our distributors have rigorously tested earlier models of WaterPure's™ equipment at customer sites in the U.S. and in several European locations over the past year. The atmospheric water generators all performed flawlessly. A recent visit to WaterPure™ allowed the distributors to see and hear the new G5. We are very pleased that it exceeded all of the distributors' expectations. They have advised us they are confident this will enable them to maintain their competitive advantages in the European markets. Therefore we expect this latest technological breakthrough will be well received by other international partners and end users. Following our reviews of numerous other competitive products, we are confident that no other company can deliver the quality and quantity of water the G5 delivers, supported by a complete three year parts and labor warranty," Lipschutz said.

To date, WaterPure™ has secured sales contracts with domestic and foreign distributors for the purchase of 3,650 AWG units over the next two years.
