Problem

2 billion people worldwide access water through off-premise sources including public taps, protected wells, and boreholes. This off-premise water is brought home in stagnant containers where it remains, and is transferred using buckets. The transfer process of stagnant water is not only wasteful, but also hinders sanitation and personal hygiene. As a result, the spread of preventable, yet deadly disease is more likely to affect those without running water. Projects that attempt to fix this problem tend to be expensive and complex, and usually require government oversight.

Mission

To bring the benefits of running water to the 2 billion people in the world that lack access.

Who we are

We are a team of former classmates and have developed a manually pressurized and refillable water tank that we believe can act as a satisfactory substitute for running water systems in parts of the world that lack sufficient plumbing infrastructure
