The lid / The lid

The lid
The lid

In Africa, the problem of getting drinking water has always been concerned, as there is a lack of water in most area of Africa. Thus people there have to use bailers to gather water from shallow puddles, in which there are usually impurities like silt. These impurities will eventually affect people’s health. Besides, it lengthen the working hours because of its low efficiency. Therefore, we designed this lid. We can just put it in the water and lift it straight up, so as pure water gets up! Also, with the help of it, we can get more water every time. As it itself is a lid, it also helps to reduce the loss while moving the bucket of water.
