Water sweep / Water purification

Water sweep

Africa is a country where they suffer from a lack of water. Because of that, just a small amount of water seems to be highly prized. However, it is not easy to dip rainwater or the shallow water with a general bucket. “Water Sweep” is designed for that reason. The product has the shape of a dustpan, and can scoop the water in the basket, even the shallow waters, like sweeping the water. The filter around the handle purifies the water and prevents potential diseases caused by the water.
