Grundfos’ AQpure and AQtap – Safe and sustainable drinking water solution


According to WaterAid report 2018, 163 million people among India’s population of 1.3 billion – or more than one in 10 – lack can access to clean water close to their home. For a sustainable and clean water future it is important to innovate sustainable technologies and strengthen the current solutions. Grundfos’ AQpureis a solar /grid powered ultrafiltration-based water treatment optimised for producing drinking water. It plays an important role in local communities and in remote areas, where establishing a stable, reliable and affordable production of drinking water from lakes and rivers can be challenging. AQpure can operate as a stand-alone and self-driven water treatment system.

The Grundfos AQpure system produces drinking water by filtering bacteria, viruses and particles from a raw water source. This solution processes water from surface bodies such as lakes, ponds, reservoirs and rivers by using ultrafiltration (UF) technology. AQPure plays an important role today, as it will help tap the potential of surface water and bridge the gap between water supply and demand. Grundfos AQpureis built on a modular concept allowing for customization of each AQpure system to the specific raw water quality. The power consumption of the system is very low, they can be operated on solar power and single phase grid power.

Recently, Grundfos AQpure system received a stellar recognition from Jal shakti Ministry by empaneling it as an innovative technology (solar powered and automatic UF based water treatment system) for use under the iconic Jal Jeevan mission and Swachh Bharat mission. This will now be included in the list of recommended innovative technologies in the Department of Drinking water and sanitation’s innovation portal.

Grundfos AQpure can operate as a stand-alone water treatment system or combined with Grundfos AQtap water dispensers in water kiosk applications. The water treatment system can also be used in apartment buildings, resorts and industries.

Grundfos’ AQap
Grundfos’¬AQtap is a grid or solar-powered intelligent water ATM that ensures a reliable and sustainable water supply. AQtap acts a water dispenser, it has a robust construction, operates precisely all the while ensuring minimum wastage of water.

This technology often finds its additional benefit when coupled with AQpure. The AQtap system is a smart water management system that works through an integrated platform for revenue collection and online management of water kiosks, supports financial viability and accountability of water service operations and offers a view into effective drinking water management.

AQtap or ‘Water ATM’ is a kiosk that can be also used to distribute potable water. The water kiosk is connected to a water tank supplied by groundwater or treated surface water, post treatmentusing Grundfos pumps and AQpure water treatment system.

AQtap is an intelligent solution that can be connected to the existing water network or provided as part of a total Grundfos water supply solution. Through an integrated platform for revenue collection and online management of water points, AQtap supports the financial viability and accountability of water service operations.
