Systems – Rainwater Harvesting and Biosand Filtration
With a background in the media and a lecturer at Ace Institute of Management, Binod Bhattarai is a well-known name in the media. Since he already knew the benefits of Rainwater harvesting, he had installed the system 3 years ago, and from then onwards he never had to look back. His well water quality was not so bad, but drinking without filtering was out of the question. He has already installed filter that required electricity but in the city of frequent power cuts, he had problem filtering the water when there was no electricity.
His colleague Suman Shakya, CEO of SmartPaani had recently installed a biosand filter for his iron rich water well water at his own house. And he was drinking the same water after filtration. This fact along with his own research on this system, Mr. Bhattarai installed Biosand filter in late January, 2012. His water filtration problem during load shedding is now solved forever.
His say on the systems installed: “I had done enough research about rainwater harvesting and biosand filters before installing, and I am satisfied with how things have come out to be.”
