Water shortages have brought to the fore the idea of using water efficient products in order to save and provide safe drinking water. These water efficient products are also assisting families and individuals save some money on water bills. Below are some of them.
This is a humidity and temperature driven machine that can produce up to 32 litres of pure water within 24 hours, basically out of thin air. The machine’s rate of creation depends on the level of humidity in the air and the temperature to produce water. So it works better in hot and humid climates, where it is needed most.
An ideal humidity level between 40% and 50% will see you filling 32 litres of water a day. In areas with lower humidity level, such as the Cape, the machine will still produce water, of course not as quickly, nor as much as in places with high levels of humidity, such as Kwazulu-Natal. The unit also acts as an effective dehumidifier to keep you healthy and improves the performance of other home appliances.
Fontus was designed to help people in water-scarce areas. When humid air flows into the device, it hits a series of hydrophobic “teeth,” which look like toothbrush bristles, which help turn the water vapour into actual droplets. Over the course of an hour, Fontus can produce roughly half a litre of water. Fontus allows you to travel anywhere without the fear of running out of water.
Lifestraw products allow you to drink untreated water from water sources such as streams. Lifestraw is an intricate three-chamber, four-filter purification system which removes parasites and other waterborne bacteria through physical filtration methods and no chemicals. The entire process is powered by suction. Not only is Lifestraw efficient but it’s also portable, which means you can carry it around as you travel.
With these products, you are assured of being waterwise all year round.
