Without clean water, human health is put at risk, and numerous cases of sickness and death may occur. Filthy Water Treatment Machine was proposed to treat and reuse the filthy water that can be hazardous to human health. By using this treatment machine, the filthy water can be made safe to drink after chemical treatment to eliminate the hazardous components of the water that a regular filter fails to remove. The pump will push the dirty water into series of filters to remove unwanted microorganism. Ultra-filtration membrane, reverse osmosis process, and ultraviolet sterilization will be used to eliminate the remaining bacteria and microorganism in the water until clean and clear water is produced and safe to drink. Because the project was conceptualized for calamity use, backup power sources, specifically solar panels and batteries, were considered.
