Clean water is a luxury many people in the world don’t have. As time goes on and the world’s clean water supply becomes increasingly precious, more people join that statistic. This makes developing technologies that pursue the purification of water one of the biggest endeavours of the 21st century. But to move a mountain, one has to start with a few rocks: One of those rocks is WaterO.
The WaterO purifier uses the principle of reverse osmosis, a water treatment method that forces untreated water through a semi-permeable membrane to remove contaminants and impurities, to purify 99.9% of the water run through it. Its four filter system captures everything from nitrates, cyanide, and copper, resulting in a crisp glass of water everytime. Its sleek construction sits well on a kitchen countertop and requires no installation, plugging in for power instead.
