I know what you’re thinking. There’s been other attempts? While the basic concept of WaterSeer is nothing new, it is far from being close to any other attempt made before. The Incas sustained their culture above the rain line by collecting dew and channeling it into cisterns for later distribution.
Since then, there have been more modern attempts, but they have been damaging to the environment, often require costly distribution systems, and significant maintenance. WaterSeer, on the other hand, is taking a different approach and learning the lessons of those previous efforts. More importantly, WaterSeer is not one size fits all and that’s the beauty of it.
WaterSeer is sustainable. Unlike large centralized water treatment systems, or desalinization projects which are very expensive to build, maintain, and operate, WaterSeer is a simple, easy to use, family-scale solution. Due to that simplicity and scale, WaterSeer has a carbon footprint that is on average only 1% of the carbon footprint of other water systems. In fact, when used for agricultural and gardening purposes, it is effectively carbon negative thanks to photosynthesis.
WaterSeer can be flexible to your needs. Yes, you heard that right. It can produce water in your backyard, a garden, farm, a park, even a village! This gives the WaterSeer user independence from municipal water system costs and rationing as well as providing an assured source of water in emergency situations, such as earthquakes, floods, or mechanical breakdowns. The simplest design has no moving parts, and no energy requirements. The WaterSeer basic module can be tailored to satisfy the requirements of demanding climates by adding performance enhancing modules, such as solid state coolers, hydrostatic controls, solar power generators, or alternative power sources.
It gets better.
WaterSeer uses technology from many different scientific and industrial areas and combines them in a way to get the best possible result. Because of its modular approach, it can be continuously improved as technology and designs improve. It is an air water generation system, not just a tool or appliance, and will always be on the cutting edge of the best technology.
WaterSeer can be mobile! The basic WaterSeer design is light (about 50lbs) and easy to carry, clean, and move to new locations when required to improve yield, convenience or usefulness.
And it can be scalable, too. By connecting the collection reservoirs of individual WaterSeers and draining them into a cistern, water can be collected for large scale demands or for emergencies. This simple and flexible approach, known as a WaterSeer ‘orchard’, is adaptable to a wide variety of terrain and environments, while maintaining reliability, sustainability and durability.
Besides all this interesting scientific talk, WaterSeer is beautiful in form and function. It will not disfigure the landscape or the environment. It’s designed to be included as an architectural feature of urban parks, walkways, public spaces, and incorporated into fountains, irrigation systems, and recreational spaces.
The WaterSeer design has come a long way since our crowdfunding raise ended in November 2016. Since then, it has advanced from original concept to a beautifully designed 3D model. Most importantly, our business model is uniquely philanthropic from any other water generation solution.
We intend to make fresh, clean water abundantly available to all by funding our worldwide distribution through a buy one, donate one program. For every WaterSeer purchased, one will be donated to a non-governmental organization (basically, a non-profit) and water advocacy organization around the world. WaterSeer is here to assure no one needs to suffer from lack of clean, fresh drinking water.
I’d say that’s pretty cool.
