A Zimba unit weighs about 12 kg. The outer shell is made of food grade fibreglass to provide the strength it needs to be roadworthy and be protected from all likely abuse by humans and the weather, and the inner parts are made of virgin polypropylene plastic.
Being capable of treating thousands of litres of water per day, a single Zimba can meet the demand of a large community.
A step-by-step Operations & Maintenance Guide is provided along with all accessories. Setting up a device should be possible under 30 minutes without requiring any special tools.
Kids should play and study, not be down with diarrhoea from drinking water at school. Chronic diarrhoea in early childhood can contribute to malnutrition, with potentially adverse long-term consequences for child development.
Cross infections are common in crowded hospitals and health centres. Coming to a hospital with flue and leaving with typhoid is surely not desirable.
Community water points like hand pumps.
Similarly it can serve slums where water in typically collected from a common shared water points.
Accidents and injuries are preventable by using protective gear. Let Zimba be the protection gear for drinking water of construction workers.
Earthquakes, floods etc. are invariably followed by outbreak of diarrhoeal disease. Transporting a Zimba device and disinfecting the water at site is surely a better option than transporting water.
