NeeRain’s Innovative Rainwater filter was featured in Wash Innovation Hub’s National Post

Rainwater harvesting is a great way to save, reuse and recycle water in India. However, it takes an immense amount of space and cost to set up, and maintain.

NeeRain, a Gujarat-based startup has come up with plug and- play filter products for rainwater harvesting that comes at an affordable price and requires no labor work.

“We aimed to make rainwater harvesting as easy and affordable as possible. Even a house of built-up area of 500 square feet, should be able to retain rainwater,” said Akash Varia, Founder of NeeRain.

NeeRain, is a Gol-approved young start-up, incubated at CrAdLE, EDII Gandhinagar backed by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.

The quality of rainwater is often an issue of concern. NeeRain’s products are fitted with two filters that removes the physical Impurities from rainwater. One is a non-clogging V-wire filter which removes impurities up to 500 Micron and the second filter is a Polymeric Filter – 200 Micron.

NeeRain has helped save nearly 30 crore liters of water in India. They have installed more than 2000 filters in various parts of the country. Their patented filters have also been bought by many people in the US, Africa, Nepal, and other countries.

The simplicity of rainwater harvesting system is the sole intention behind making it manageable and cost effective. Any one with a non-technical background can easily maintain the systems.

NeeRain filters can be fitted on rooftops of any household for houses with tiled or slant roofs, gutter pipes are fitted which direct the water to the filtration unit. “We can also design and install the products in such a way that the rainwater, post filtration is sent directly into a borewell,” Akash explained.

NeeRain also focuses on developing more affordable filters for smaller households.

This is how you can Beat Water Crisis

Our common man needs a device that is simple, economical, ready to use, works without maintenance headaches, has no electricity burden, no civil work and no consumable cost. These are the factors due to which rainwater harvesting has not become common man’s movement. We sincerely feel that all these factors are sensibly addressed by NeeRain to prevent drying of Borewells at decentralised habitats. We believe common man centric approach is vital to address the scarcity of fresh water using rainwater. NeeRain fills the gap between the availability of rainwater and drying of borewells and thereby depletion of groundwater.

Avoid dry borewell & beat water scarcity

NeeRain Rainwater filter is  1x1x1.5 foot device made from ABS plastic fits on the wall of the house or building. It is attached to a pipe that receives rainwater from the rooftop and channelizes it to the existing borewell to raise it’s water level.

The Filters very in terms of the size of particles they net . The first filter ensures that particles up to 500 microns are collected and allows water to pass through it. The water then passes through the second filter that prevents the passage of particles up to 200 microns, The water passes out of the system and is pure, clean and fresh rainwater. It stored in the Borewell or groundwater source or tank.
