Rain Purifying System Rainwater can be very tasteful for drinking when in its pure state.Current rain water collector through roofing sheets are contaminated by dust , animal feces, dead insects, engine oil, car exhaust, lead paint and other substances can make drinking it a health hazard. Rain water can be purify using my local technique for purification.Its actually design in an electronic control system at the collector ...more »
Integrated Biosand and UV water Disinfection System is a water disinfection technique to be applied at the household level with a very great potential to reduce water-borne diseases such as diarrhea ,typhoid and Cholera to the users .This was a University project that we designed and fabricated .It was done at a budget of about 180USD .This could treat about 53.1 litres of water in total filtration time of about 3hrs ...more »
Slow Sand Filtration (SSF) technology has been used to treat the drinking water of many European and American cities over the last 200 years. Introduction of slow sand filtration to American cities in the early 20th century was the primary factor responsible for the massive declines in infant mortality and waterborne disease. The HydrAid Biosand Water Filter is the inspiration that is the solution. Performance, life saving ...more »
While we’d love to provide the most advanced totally pure water supply for Africa, maybe one approach is to make a significant difference first with a simpler, mechanical method using locally available materials. The earliest means of purifying water that I’ve read about were sand filters, dating back to 1804 in England.* Is it possible to teach people in Africa to build their own sand filters, using discarded soda ...more »
Reverse osmosis produces one of the purest methods of water filtration, removing up to 99% of all contaminants from water. Water passes through a series of filters including an activated carbon filter for the removal of chlorine. After which the water passes through a semi permeable membrane that has the ability to remove and reject a wide spectrum of impurities, bacteria and contaminants from the water, producing ultra ...more »
We must admit that there those cases where the water is available but the people still don't find it useful. This is either due to pollution,contamination or the fact that the water has bad odor or even has harmful micro-organisms that cause diseases. This is also lack of water. To solve this we can try to turn the available dirty water into clean drinkable water by filtration. In as much as there are many methods to ...more »
simple and low cost easy to applied specially in undevelopment countries
this method is my project in phD
and all the parameters analysis was very good
i hope to get chance to applying this project in large scales
Reeds and water plants etc are good filtrators of river water, fence areas around the catchment areas to prevent animals polluting the water and collect filtered water in tanks.
I've found a way to filter pond water using a converted washing machine. It is highly effective and easier to use than other systems For the past three years I have concentrated my time on improving a more enhanced filtration systemfor koi ponds, and water gardens. Other current systems prove to be time consuming, complicated, and inefficient. This system is safe and simple to operate, and completes the nitrogen cycle ...more »
Water Sources in Africa and particularly in Uganda are; 1. Clear flowing water and 2. Lakes, ponds and rivers Clear flowing water coming from somewhere without people, manmade things or an obvious sign of pollution is best. Lakes, ponds and rivers are less ideal. The first two are stagnant, which may mean increased levels of bacteria and other gross things, while large rivers are typically full of pollution. Not forgetting ...more »
Household-level water treatment has been proven to reduce diarrhoeal disease risk by 36% (compared to 17% for water source interventions). These locally-made ceramic water filters are affordable and effective for removing bacteria and other pathogens responsible for enteric diseases.
fitration is abetter way off re using water as many times as u can . this can be done through putting different layers and can be called trouble shooting as i may explain it as below: Troubleshooting Q. Flow Rate: Takes long to filter. A. The water travels through 5 stages in order to bring y our water down to 000. Most other filters are only 1-2 stages which is why their water can't reach 000. The slow flow of the ...more »
