Value proposition

The WATA device is a simple appliance that only requires salt, water and electricity to produce chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) through a process of electrolysis. It can be used in any community that lacks access to a chlorine supply chain or to a drinkable water supply. The produced chlorine, after dilution, can be used as well for disinfecting floors, clothes or even food.
As WATA Entreprise will target primarily rural areas, especially off-center hospitals, the clean water produced by its clients will also benefit low income communities.
