The Q-Drum is a 50-litre container that is uniquely rollable, pulled by a rope that is tied to the central hole. It does not have a handle that could be broken and the cord is easily replaceable. This container is made from a low-density polyethylene to reduce weight.
Therefore, the process of fetching water is made easier, in cases where connecting to a network is not on the agenda, like in the countryside. The weight load of pulling 50 litres of water over many kilometres, which is slightly more than 50 kilos, does not constrain a child in any way.
The Q-drum design is basic but fundamental, it offers a solution for accessing water in countries where fetching it is common, like in Africa.
Thirteen percent of the world's population still lacks access to drinking water and the remaining 87% are not connected to a network. They often have to travel many kilometres to reach a well or a fountain. This innovation is intended to simplify the chore of fetching water, which is still often reserved for women or children.
It's a very simple innovation, but it can significantly change day to day life. It is made of a 3D printer and recycled plastic...
