Water Purification Bicycle – The Aquaduct

Posted on Mar 12 2008 - 8:19am by Russ


I like this product… solves a couple of problems in one tidy device. In many third world countries they have to travel quite a ways to get dirty water, then tote it back to their hut house to boil the water before using it. Seems like it might easier to just use a gravity filter and a cheap bicycle, but I still like it.

  • 1.1billion people in the world don’t have access to clean water.
  • Over 5000 children die each day of water related diseases.

“It’s got a tank on the back that can be used to store and transport water, and while the user is pedaling, water is pumped through a filter into a clean tank on the front of the bike. If you get to your destination before all of your water is purified, flip a clutch on the side of the bike, and you can pedal in place to purify the rest”

1 Comment so far. Feel free to join this conversation.

    Can you sell me the pump and clutch parts so I can build my own version of this machine?
