Source of Water Turns Flood Water into Potable Water

 |  |  |  |  September 14, 2012


Floods are becoming more and more common these days. Probably because people are still cutting down trees like no tomorrow and throwing their trash everywhere (which clogs up all the overtaxed drainage systems.)

Source of WaterIt’s ironic, but what usually happens during extreme floods are water shortages all over the place. Not of floodwater (obviously), but of clean drinking water.

So designer Wang Can came up with the Source of Water concept. Basically it’s a tube filter that’s meant to be thrown right into the water that has accumulated outside. The water surrounding the canister exerts pressure on the tube, pushing the waters inside and through the filters, purifying it in the process.

Just think of all the lives that can be saved with Can’s concept – if it works to actually purify the dirty flood waters, that is.
