Providing sustainable community-based water solutions

Our AquaTower solution changes the lives of children, families and community because bacteria, protozoa, viruses, pathogens and other contaminates greater than 0.01 micron are removed and crystal clean drinking water is produced. Scalable, affordable and easy to install, our AquaTowers are simple to maintain and are a sustainable development solution that includes training, spare parts, project monitoring and job creation.


Our drinking water solution Supports 1,000 people daily

Clean drinking water is accessed at the AquaTower through nine faucets positioned around the tower. Water flow is regulated via gravity pressure from the system’s elevated source water holding tank that forces water through the ultra-filtration filter system. Messages and images that reinforce our Water-health & Hygiene Education programs appear above the water faucets.


Reducing sickness through hand washing

The AquaTower is also used for hand washing. Mounted around the AquaTower are soap dispensers where children can wash their hands after using the latrine, playing and before eating. Handwash education and behavior helps to keep children healthy and increases school attendance.

Planet Water Foundation AquaTowers are assembled by Planet Water Foundation employees and volunteers in one day. Funding and assembly of the AquaTowers is an excellent corporate social responsibility (CSR) and team-building initiative where employees and stakeholders have the opportunity for improving the lives of children in disadvantaged communities.

Providing daily drinking water for 1,000 people

Our AquaTowers are capable of producing 10,000 liters per day - enough clean, safe drinking water to sustain the population of a community and surrounding constituents of up to 1,000 people. Water quality meets WHO standards.


Creating change in the community through Planet Water Foundation is more than just clean, safe water - it means delivering a long-term sustainable solution.

Clean water system supported for five years - technical, spare parts, etc.
