Solar powered filterless water filter
The Big Idea
We will design a water purification system that uses no filters, but ionizes the pollutants in water and pulls them to a polarized metal plate.
We know there are many places where people can't afford clean water or filters for water purifiers. We have a way to cleanly purify water with only the one time cost of the product. There will be a solar panel feeding power to polarize a metal plate in the filter. When you put water in the filter, it will be ionized. As it passes past the polarized plate, the ionized particles in the water will stick to the plates, leaving pure water behind. When there is buildup on the metal plates, you just pop it out and wipe it down. No need for paper filters or external power supply. The solar panel will charge a capacitor or battery during daylight and run off that internal source when it is night.
