Providing clean fresh drinking water without any expensive infrastructure.

Strengths: • One small piece connects two existing systems for exploitation of clean drinking water • It provides clean fresh drinking water without any expensive infrastructure • It works with small, independent and therefore contamination-safe entities (bottles) • It reuses valuable material (plastic bottles) and reduces resource wasting • It is extremely simple, low cost and can be mounted easily • It can improve life quality and health of millions of people

Difficulties: We consider that there is no risk, only opportunity. The only difficulty we see at the moment is to get funds for the necessary product development of the RAIN DRAIN CONNECTOR.

Extra information: It is an irony of fate, that even in those countries, where plenty of rain is falling (tropics), poor people consume water from polluted rivers and contaminated wells. And it is a drama, that in those regions billions of plastic bottles – containing drinking water – are bought and littered, creating serious environmental problems and pollution. RAIN WATER can be drunk and used for cooking, if it is collected and filtered.
