After living with bacteria-laden well water, Cody Soodeen’s parents suffered a slew of ailments.

Similar products have relied on noisy, energy-intensive refrigerants to work their water magic, but the stainless-steel Kara Pure uses natural desiccants—think of the little silica gel packets in shoeboxes—to quietly attract moisture. After launching last December, the device saw over $1 million in sales in its first 70 days.
