WATERSHARING / Water Purification Equipment


In disasters, surface water and groundwater is contaminated, and cannot be used directly. The existing design considers more about personal use. With limited amount of purifying water, people need to reach the vicinity of water. And usually it only focuses on drinking water.
Considering the use of both drinking water and domestic water in disaster, WATERSHARING use two different ways to purify water. At the same time, the concept of purifying water layer by layer provides 2 types of water quality and also helps save purification materials. WATERSHARING is designed for collective water supply. And it can be assembled by only 1 person.
