"shudhha" / Water filter

This water purifier works on the principle of converting hydro-energy to electrical energy. The water from the running tap falls on the mini hydro turbine putting it into motion. The kinetic energy generated due to this motion is converted into electricity which is used to illuminate the chamber of ultra violet LEDs. Then the water passes through three layers of alum filters inbuilt in the purifier. These layers filter out physical impurities.The filtered water then passes through the UV chamber where ultra violet light kills bacteria and microbes present in the water. Shudha helps avoiding wastage of electricity by using self-generated power
