Schistosomiasis is the second most common tropical disease in Africa after malaria, which is transmitted through water and caused by parasitic larvae that infect people when contacting with infected water. For lack safe water and sanitation, more than 200 million people are infected, and 200,000 die of the disease annually. The spindle-shaped filter wheel allows people to get clean water free of schistosomiasis without touching the water source. The spindle-shaped device can be used to check whether the water is finished. The easy-to-install device allows people to better transport water to the destination, which saves time and workforce.
