Why filter rainwater

Why filter rainwater?

  • The water in a raindrop is one of the cleanest sources of water available, but can absorb gases, soot, and other particles as it falls through the sky.

  • When it reaches a roof, it can be

  • exposed to herbicide or pesticide sprays and animal droppings.

  • A filter is needed to remove those impurities.


Competition and comparison

Competition and comparison

Competition:

  • Competition is very minimal

  • Filters on the market include debris removal

    Comparison:

  • Our filter removes impurities collected in rainwater through the use of charcoal

  • Plants fed purified rainwater grow healthier and faster
