Watercone - An Ingenious Way To Turn Salt Water Into Fresh Water


This device has the potential to really do a lot of good for a lot of people. So many people live in areas where the ground water has been polluted by salt incursion due to over pumping, or in areas that simply don’t have large fresh water sources (south pacific islands, sub-Saharan Africa, south-east Asia). The Watercone is made from UV resistant plastic and they claim that it will last up to five years, after which it can be used to collect rainwater and funnel it into bottles.

I found this info at The Sietch Blog. Worth a visit.

PS: at this time individual units are not for sale. They are looking for investors to do large scale manufacturing, to get lots of these things to lots of folks who really need them. Check out the Watercone website for more info.
