Join the Pipe

Access to clean drinking water is a problem in large parts of the world. Join the Pipe is the first social network of tap water drinkers and wants to change that. Join the Pipe promotes drinking tap water with the aim of a fair distribution of drinking water. With the sale of water taps and refillable tap water bottles, drinking water projects in developing countries are financed. In the Netherlands we become aware of the quality of our own tap water and we contribute to the reduction of the sale of bottled water and therefore to potential litter!

A vision on future water pumps using wind or solar energy. By using these renewable energy sources, groundwater can be continuously pumped up and stored in a water tank. Water is instantly available. If the water need is to large or the energy supply is insufficient, the integrated hand pump can be used for additional pumping capacity.
