Trade In Your Bottled Water for A RainCloud C-15

Raincloud c-15 by Clearworld

The RainCloud C-15 was designed in the UK by Clearworld Ltd. for your home or office. It is basically a small dehumidifier that has a built in water purification system that produces drinking water. This system stores up to 20 liters of water and has an optional 20 liter reservoir tank.

The RainCloud retails for over $1000 which is not cheap, especially with the shape of the economy. However, RainCloud claims that over the long haul, its dehumidifier will cost less than drinking bottled water. And of course, the impact on the environment is a lot less than manufacturing plastic bottles and then throwing them out or recycling them.

According to Clearworld Ltd., even low usage customers will see a savings by using RainCloud instead of buying bottled water. Here’s what they say: The Price of RainCloud C-15 equals the price of bottled water usage for 20 months. By still using bottled water, you will continue to pay the same price, year after year. Switching on to RainCloud C-15 you could start saving $452 a year. Your only additional cost per year would be water-filter replacement ($165).

How does the RainCloud C-15 work?

This was the big question on our minds. How exactly does Clearworld clean the water they want us to drink? The short answer is a five step process depicted in this diagram (click image to enlarge):

The RainCloud uses five filters to clean the water:

  1. Sediment filter: Removes small particles
  2. Pre-Carbon filter: Removes chlorine and organic substances
  3. Post-Carbon filter: Removes odors and unpleasant taste
  4. U.F membrane filter: Removes bacteria and other impurities
  5. Ultra-violet sterilizer filter: Ensures zero bacteria growth
