Muy buen proyecto, necesario en todo el Peru. El agua potable en los pueblos y ciudades de mi pais son vitales. Todos debemos aprender como diseñar esas redes de agua, para el beneficio de todos los que la necesitan .

Nuestros filtros no uso Cloro. La limpieza del filtro es un proceso de 2 minutos. De llama ‘backwashing, solo tiene que poner Agua purification en el tubo y manejar el braso de la bomba en la direcion contra reloj. Para la turbedez tenemos un pre-filtro ensima del filtro. Si la turbediz es fuerte como en Yuncaypata hacemos una sistema de arena mas grande. Puede ir a nuestro pagina de web para ver mas - www.aguamunda.com

The first water filter installed in Yuncaypata. This was a "point of use" filter - community members need to come to the filter to collect water.

Once we realized the weaknesses of the "point of use" water filter - and we had more funding, we met with water committee to bring more filters into the community.

The turbidity of the water was so high, we need to construct a pre-filtration system for the water before it was purified by the Condor filter. Measuring and planning for location of pre-filter.

Connecting tanks together. Two tanks loaded with various layers of gravel to clean turbidity. Front take to store "turbidity-free" water.
