Forbes is reporting that a water purification device, or “smart” water purifiers, will be launched by the end of 2022.
The article also notes that the device will be priced at $3,000 per unit.
According to Forbes, the device is expected to be deployed in the first quarter of 2021 and that it is expected that “the cost will be in the range of $2,000 to $3.00 per liter.”
Forbes also notes in the article that the new device is meant to replace the traditional “hot water purifying” device, which is usually used for drinking water and is costly and inefficient.
The report also notes a major difference between a water dispenser and a smart water purizer, which means that a smart device will not only work with water but also provide “clean water and other resources” for those who are “willing to take care of it.”
Forbes notes that, “smart water purizers have long been seen as a replacement for the traditional hot water dispensers, but experts are divided about whether they’re good for the environment.
Many experts have said that water purifications should be done with solar panels, as it would not cost them much and would allow them to get more efficient with the electricity generated.”
However, according to Forbes the “smart home” technology that the company has created is also intended to be a “green alternative” to the traditional water purging technology.
“People are looking at smart home technologies to take their energy usage to the next level. “
It is meant for the most efficient use of electricity, with solar-powered water purifyors, and is designed to be portable, lightweight, and low cost,” Kaplan told Forbes.
“People are looking at smart home technologies to take their energy usage to the next level.
Smart water purifies water in the same way that the water you use in your shower or washing machine does.”
According to the Forbes article, the company will start working on the water purified water device in 2021.
Forbes reports that the “Water Purification Device” will also include “the ability to automatically turn on and off the water and control the flow rate.”
The article notes that it will also “create a water-safe and efficient environment for people to use the water.”
Forbes reports, “A smart water dispensing device, made by a startup called Purifier LLC, will come to market in 2021, the year in which a new technology called ‘smart water’ is expected.”
The new device, according the article, will not be able to be operated manually by a user, but instead will “enable users to control the water flow rate and automatically turn off the flow when it’s time for a shower or wash.”
Forbes reported that Purifier was founded in 2013 by Seth Kaplan.
Forbes also reported that “in October, the startup announced that it had raised $15 million in a Series A funding round led by Qualcomm Ventures, led by Andreessen Horowitz and Andreessen Media.”
Kaplan was previously the CEO of Purify, which he also founded.
According the Forbes report, Purifier has developed “an innovative system that combines a water filter and a microchip to provide a simple, cost-effective way for consumers to keep their water safe and clean.
It can also be used for irrigation or for cleaning.”
In addition to being able to “control the flow of water” using a microprocessor, the Purifier is expected “to also enable users to use it for irrigation and cleaning.”
