Swach Neer

The invention is related to an earthen pot-based water purification system. It is divided into two chambers. The top purifying chamber is made of sand and mud, and it also include a pair of ceramic candles. These candles absorb the water in the purifying chamber, which slowly trickles down to the storage chamber. Water impurities adsorb on the surface of the silica in the candles due to the presence of burnt rice husk.

The second chamber is a storage chamber, which is made up of a mixture of mud and rice husk ash in a specific ratio. After neutralization, microorganisms need to be removed from the water, for this purpose chlorination is done. The collected water in the storage chamber is contaminant-free.
