Water Filter Assembly

Description:

The purpose of this project is to design, build, test and document a safe water filtration system for individual households in Haiti and other third world countries. The budget for the project is $10 and the design should be simple enough for potters local to Haiti to build and supply to households in the area. Our Customer, Tam Ceramics will provide us with the filter media and also will take care of the distribution of our design to Haiti. The filter media is going to be granular clay infused with silver for its antimicrobial properties.
