Provision of clean drinking water supply in rural India continues to be an enormous challenge. People in the rural parts of India have very less access to clean drinking water. Due to the consumption of contaminated water, people acquire waterborne diseases and a plethora of other sicknesses. It is therefore essential that we deploy technology for the benefit of those people who belong to the rural population of the nation, and do not and could not have access to costly gadgets. With this mission at heart, WATSAN stepped forward to provide affordable water filters for the benefit of rural India.
Mother Nature has given us the best and immunized way of filtering and treating water. Clay and sand sintered in patented, tried and tested method by IMMT – CSIR (Council of Scientific & Industrial Research) gives you the CPO Natural Terafil®™ Water Filter which is retrofitted in best water containers designed and moulded by CIPET, the Premier Institute for Plastics technology, who guarantee virgin, toxic free, and food grade containers supply.
Nano clay particles form the crux of the Terafil candle. The pores in the candles are smaller than the Nano-sized microbes like bacteria and virus, thus enabling the candles to filter the pathogens in the top layer itself, thus enabling the clean, good water to percolate and pass through it and get dropped in the bottom container. The capillary holes formed within the candle structure are so complex that it does not allow turbid materials, other waste solids, minerals and metal complexes to flow outside its structure. Therefore, the murky water which also has iron particles and pathogens gets filtered and clean water flows down due to gravitational pull and gets collected in the bottom container. This technology has enabled us to provide clean drinking water to almost 16000 homes in just one year of operation.
BIS Test Results Turbidity: Within BIS limit Iron: Within BIS limit Micro-organisms: Significantly removed (near BIS) pH Limit: Within 1.0
CPO Natural Terafil®™ Water Filters do not use chemical substances for purification. They are electricity-free and are not built with high cost gadgets, refills, moulded bodies or accessories. Hence, they are maintenance-free and they come in an affordable price.
