Drinking water is too precious to let slip
through your fingers
Turn on the tap in most European households and you have quality, fresh drinking water. Water to shower in, to clean clothes with, wash the car, flush the lavatory, water the lawn and, most importantly, to drink.
Having good fresh drinking water is like having good health. We don't worry about it too much until it is under threat.
Man can live for a month without food but will die within a week without water. It is that important.
97% of the World's Water is Undrinkable
As much as 97% of all the Earth's water is undrinkable sea water. Only 3% is fresh drinkable water, and two thirds of that is ice.
The problem is not the amount or supply of water. The Earth has as much water now as it has ever had. The problem is the growing number of people and the way that we manage our water.
Low Cost Simply Solutions
AquaEst is a company created to meet the changing needs for alternative technologies, simple but effective solutions to the problems of water supply.
Ever increasing demand from population growth, environmental degradation, pollution and wastage are increasing the pressures on supply. Water shortages are not restricted just to remote drought regions of the world anymore. An increasing number of European countries are facing near drought conditions as well as flooding. As a result, in recent years the cost of fresh drinking water has risen sharply across Europe, and is likely to rise even further.
Climate Changes and Excessive Demand
Climate shifts and excessive demand have dramatically reduced reserves and lowered the water table to dangerous levels. In many areas the water table has dropped to such a degree as to cause structural damage to buildings and is destroying forest and farm land.
Rainwater Harvesting has become a way of making the most of resources. Why should rainwater be transported over long distances to reservoirs and processing plants whilst fresh drinking water is flushed down the wc, used to wash cars and water the garden?
Fresh drinking water is one of the most precious resources on earth. We should not let it slip through our fingers.
