Introduction:

Drinking water contamination


Provision of safe water through piped water system at the households still 


remains a distant dream in developing nations. Hand pumps remain the main


source of drinking water in Rural India, south Asia and Africa. The


contamination of the groundwater by arsenic, fluoride and iron is quite


significant in affecting the quality of rural poor in these countries. So far


technologies were developed at a cost that is not affordable by rural poor.


Majority of the technologies deployed by government institutions fail because


of operation and maintenance problem, lack of ownership and access. In the


absence of appropriate technology, the rural poor continue to suffer and


struggle from contaminants in drinking water.


The “Affordable Water Solution” company was conceived by group of water


treatment professionals with more than 2 decades of practical experience in


drinking water and with a mission to develop a simple, low cost, user friendly


water treatment technology to address the drinking water concerns at the


households targeting the "Base of the Pyramid" population inhabiting the rural


side of the country. Based on the extensive laboratory and field trail a few


water treatment products was developed to tackle the contaminants in the


drinking water. One Bucket System with spigot along with sachet makes the


treatment user friendly and highly affordable. The R&D were carried out in


Environmental Monitoring Service laboratory, Auroville, Tamil Nadu, India and


validated by third party.
