Mr Tran installed the Carocell 3000 panel in November 2011, the panel has run continuously since then with water that is high in calcium, calcium carbonate, iron and alum.“The panel has been producing an average of 3 quarters of a bottle” (20 Litres), “of pure drinking water every day, and is the best we have ever tasted” said Mr Tran. Both Mr Tran and Mrs Nguyen refer to the water produced as “sweet water”.
They used to buy 1bottle every 2 to 3 days at a cost of $0.60 per 20 litre bottle.“The water from the Carocell panel tastes much better than the water we bought”
was there comments.
Mrs Nguyen used to boil 5 litres of water every day which would take her 1.5 hours; she no longer has to do this.
Mr Tran is now cutting 50% of the wood he used to cut, as they are no longer boiling water.
This is estimated to be 5kgs per day or 1.8 tonnes per year.
Apart from the pure drinking water produced the family also collect the flow through water from the panel, which is filtered and naturally UV disinfected by the unique Carocell solar element. This hot disinfected and filtered water is used for hygienic washing and washing clothes.“The clothes we are now washing with the water from the panel are much cleaner than from the well water”
, commented Mrs Nguyen.
The final comment was the water from Carocell tastes much better and was safer than bottled water, as no one was getting sick.
