To date the most economical means is collecting rain water from the roof of buildings at schools and health centers. This requires installation of rain gutters, trash dispensing piping, trash filters and piping from the gutters to storage tank(s).
Water is collected in tanks specified for use in storing water. The capacity of the storage tank(s) is governed by the anticipated rain fall in the area, estimated rain fall intervals, and the size of the population being served. Tanks are elevated by various means to allow gravity water flow to the water purification equipment.
We designed the water purification system to achieve 99.999% bacteria and virus free safe water and have a system that can adjust the flow rate to meet each installation requirement. The main items of equipment are: pre-water filter(s), electric motor, one to five .9-micron ceramic filters (number of filters depends on water flow required) and special designed ultraviolet light(s). The number of UVL depends on the amount of purified water required. In addition, the system has numerous other components: pressure valves and shut-off valves of various sizes, PVC piping, various pvc pipe connections, semi-plastic tubing, cut-off water float valves and piping clamps.
Includes a water dispensing storage tank to hold water that has been purified and ready for use. The tank includes a shut-off float switch to cut off water flow to the tank when full. Piping is connected to the tank and is run to the point of use where drinking faucets are installed.
Most all rural areas of installation will not have access to electricity. Our system requires electrical power to operate water pump and UV lights. The main items of equipment consist of: solar panel(s), charge controller and storage batteries sized to the amperage required at each installation. Other items required are wiring of various sizes, cut-off switches, terminals, wire connectors and fuses.
Note: For security reasons all the purification and solar equipment except solar panels, require a secured area .
