WATER BIKE / Water purification device


1/6 of the world ’s population currently lacks safe drinking water, especially in many poor parts of Africa. Despite abundant rainfall, rivers still lack freshwater resources. The main reason for this problem is that these water resources have not been professionally filtered. And disinfection, because it contains a lot of viruses and is not drinkable. WATER BIKE is a water purification device that can be driven only by manpower. As long as there is a river nearby, the river water can be sucked into the device through a pedal piston pump, and through multiple filtration systems, the purified water is finally filled into the rear Bucket.
