A Bamboo Tower That Produces Up To 25 Gallons of Water In A Day by Capturing Condensation


The need for fresh water has pushed humans into exploring new and innovative techniques. For thousands of years, in regions where water is scarce, sometimes using air wells, people have harvested water from the rain, fog or even dew. In Ethiopia, we can witness an upgrade to the age-old technique. With a slick modern design, the WarkaWater will definitely improve collection of water from the surrounding environment. Standing 30 ft. tall and 13 ft. wide, the bamboo tower was envisioned by Arturo Vittori and his team, Architecture and Vision. How does it work? Well, the mesh netting installed on the structure captures moisture from the air and directs it into hygienic holding tank. Then, you can access the water via a spout. Check out the blueprints and other images involving this modern technique of collecting water!

The WarkaWater Tower, which is easy and cheap to construct, uses no electricity and has the ability to produce up to 25 gallons of water in a day by capturing condensation and could be the answer to water scarcity in parts of the world that have little to no access to water.

    Lissette Padilla needs to take the “talk on TV ” class. All that hand waving can be detrimental to your story.

    Would of liked more details of the Actual tower (how it works etc) rather than a presenter waffling for the same of it

  3. Marilyn says:

    I love this idea! Would like info on how I can sponser one.. Maybe some organizions can get together and supply a whole village..

  4. Dilip Kulkarni says:

    What is the minimum humidity and temperature range for this to work effectively?

  5. Lauren says:

    Kindly get in touch regarding your product in South Africa. Thank you

  6. Akshay Patel says:

    Would like to learn in depth detailing of this tower. Also would like to know what should be the amount of humidity in the air to capture this water.

    How about a design for a home water collection tower that is not quite so large…..we live very close to the ocean, but would like to have a fresh water collection system in case there is a failure of the electric grid here in the United States…..we are presently on a well system that serves some 140-homes….we would like to have our own private “system” for fresh water….

    Pls sent me the details on my mail id

    Need more details. Installation cost. Any special atmospheric conditions etc.

    This will work,but the problem is if you take water from air, climate changes will occur beyond your beliefs. This was tried in Africa a few years ago and they got drought. Can not fool around with mother nature, it usually causes other problems which are far more worse than getting water from air..

  11. Alok Ranjan Singh says:

    Please send me the detailed design of the tower. I want to demonstrate it and replicate it in India. Is there any program that trains to construct it?

  12. rohit says:

    please let me know the details and the cost , if fabricated locally

  13. Sumati says:

    Wonderful! It’s going to change the world!

  14. PNB RAO says:

    Fantastic and unbelievable. Would like to know more about this project.
