Water Collectormanifold / Water, Resources, Reuse

Water Collectormanifold
Water Collectormanifold

In undeveloped areas, especially in the countries like Africa, water shortages have severely reduced people’s living standards. Since the average annual rainfall in Africa is also very small, we hope to solve the water problem of people to some extent through Sunshade Water Collectormanifold.
Sunshade Water Collectormanifold is shaped like an umbrella and installed on the ground. Its top has a huge umbrella surface, which can be opened to collect rainwater during rainfall. When the umbrella is facing up, people can use the rain water from the faucet. When the umbrella is facing down, it can be used as a temporary shower for people to bathe
