Purification cover
Purification cover

People living in karamajon, northern Uganda, can find some ponds as water sources. But there are problems of pollution and serious human and animal sharing at the water intake points. Meanwhile, the water purification project can not be carried out locally. The project uses the existing standard screw thread of bottle mouth, realizes size control through matching washer and detachable screw cap. And then purifies the water in the process of water intake through a series of purification operations in the pipeline.
