Rain / Fresh water distillation device


This pot called "rain" is mainly designed for people who lack drinking water. After investigation and research, we found most of the water shortage areas are not lack of water but healthy drinking water, which caused a series of problems. How to efficiently extract drinking water in the surrounding environment is the key to the design. We conceived the water in the raw liquid turns into water vapor and then condenses into distilled water for reuse. Therefore, we designed the internal water circulation structure of the upper and lower layers.It's like a rain for the people in the water scarce areas.
