Water covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface. It is a very important resource for people and the environment. Water pollution affects drinking water, rivers, lakes, and oceans all over the world. In many developing countries, safe drinking water is still a problem. Over 1000 children die every year as a result of diseases caused by water pollution.

Therefore, many companies develop technical devices that people can use in their homes to purify water. These devices improve the quality of stored water and greatly reduce the risk of illness and death.

Humans have now realised the significance of clean water as a foundation for life. In recent years, more and more organisations and councils have been working hard to educate, protect, restore waterways, and encourage practices that help to preserve water ecosystems from destruction.
