WPUR Commences Production of New Atmospheric Water Generator to Be Made in USA

OAKLAND PARK, FL--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - WaterPure International, Inc. (the "Company" or "WaterPure") (OTCBB: WPUR) announced today that it has begun production of its new WaterCycle™ Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG) at its new 4,400 square foot plant in Oakland Park, Florida. The WaterCycle™ is built with stainless steel, has a seven gallon water storage tank, and has a touch screen LCD for instant access and control. The WaterCycle™ can generate and filter anywhere from three to 16 gallons of water per day, based upon the ambient temperature and relative humidity.

About Atmospheric Water Generators (AWGs)

AWGs extract moisture from the atmosphere through a condensation process and transforms it, creating absolutely pure, healthy drinking water. Multiple air and water filtration systems remove particulate matter smaller than .01 microns. Utilizing ozonation, it eliminates any micro-organisms including bacteria and viruses. Test results of WaterPure water measured 99.9% purity, exceeding EPA requirements. Operating on standard 110v power in the USA, it is extremely efficient and uses a minimal amount of energy to produce water. The unit requires no plumbing, water lines or pipes and is easily installed. Driven by a microcomputer control system, it will stop generating water when full. The WaterPure purification system employs special filters to remove any unpleasant tastes or odor that may be present in the air.

Paul S. Lipschutz, WaterPure's President, states: "I believe this is the finest AWG made today. We use ozone, not ultra-violet, for ultimate filtration; the machine is made sturdy with galvanized and stainless steel construction; it has a 6 gallon reservoir; and most importantly, it is 'Made in the USA.' We expect to be able to build as many as 2,000 units a month at this new facility as demand increases. We believe AWG's are an important part of the solution to the world's water problems."
