Soggy / Water purifier


The first days after the flood are critical for the survivors’ health. Although they are surrounded by water, those water are undrinkable and can be the source of many illnesses. My product is a personal water purifier that gives an initial response to a population trapped in a flood. The purifier is made of a special filter Sponge , that is used as a water pump and a storage place for the water. The sponge is sealed with silicon and there are only two designated entrances for the water. This creates vacuum which enables the pumping of water. The unidirectional valves make sure that dirty water stays in and only clean water can come out.
