Rs. 3000 technology to solve clean water problem in India

Water pollution is a very serious problem not just in India, but all over the world. Every day, around 10,000 people die all over the world due to the lack of clean water. This is a very big issue and requires immediate attention. In order to solve this problem bio-sand filters are made to offer a simple and cost effective solution.

In India alone 2,000 people die to due to the lack of clean water. There are many villagers who consume unsafe water because they do not have a choice. This problem is high for economically weaker people.

In order to help these economically poor people, a Canadian scientist Dr. David Manz, designed and created a tool.

This is a low cost Bio-Sand Water Filter which removes all dissolved particles and pathogens from water.


This is a slow purifying process which removes up to 98 percent bacteria, 100 percent of viruses, 99% of parasites, protozoa, amoebae, and worms, 95% of heavy metals, and with a slight modification, 93% of arsenic from water. This device is used to eliminate diseases like Typhoid, Cholera, Hepatitus A, Rotavirus, E-coli bacteria etc.

You can help in spreading this device by being part of the awareness campaigns or by donating these filters to villages.
