Transparency for Water Safety

DataPond offers the first real-time, continuous bio-contamination system enabling water suppliers and authorities to assure the safety of the water. 

Water quality is a major concern worldwide
  • 1.7 billion people globally use unsafe drinking water.

    The water crisis is getting worse, due to climate change and population growth.

    Microbial contamination of drinking water poses the greatest water-borne health risk.

    Water quality is also a problem for developed countries.

Water suppliers cannot ensure the provision of bio-safe water. complex water testing.
  • Coliform testing is complex, time-consuming, and costly, leading to infrequent testing, often limited to the water source rather than the entire distribution network.

    Old infrastructure and intermittent water pressure may cause contamination.

Water suppliers are operating in the dark -
DataPond enables a real-time view of water safety issues

Currently, there is no cost-effective, real-time sensor
for detecting biological contaminants in water.

Timely detection of contamination is crucial for effective treatment.
