Leading the Way With Rainwater Reuse

In the words of Alexandra Cousteau, “Water will be the defining crisis of our century.” Essentially, water is running out. Population is constantly growing, and water and storm water management costs are skyrocketing across the U.S., increasing by up to 8% per year. Without a sustainable water management plan that includes rainwater harvesting, both people and businesses will suffer.

Comparing RO Filter Quality and Performance

Consumers who choose to use a residential point-of-use (POU) reverse osmosis (RO) system in their home need to feel secure that their system is producing high quality, reliable water for their family. Because most of us lack sophisticated equipment at home to make this determination, many homeowners rely on trusted brands to deliver the water quality they expect.

Improving India’s Water Technology

India is regarded as one of the fastest growing global markets. With an official Indian government growth forecast of 8.75% in 2011, the country emerged relatively unscathed from the recent global economic downturn.

India occupies only 2.4% of the world’s landmass, but it has more than 15% of the world’s population, with a median age of 25. Approximately 70% of India’s population lives in more than 550,000 villages; the rest of the population lives in more than 200 towns and cities.
