TAPP Water provides affordable, easy to use and sustainable consumer products and services for clean and tasty tap water. Over the last couple of years awareness has increased about plastic pollution but at the same time people are more concerned about the quality of the tap water. In some countries such as Spain 40% of all households mainly consume bottled water. Worldwide about 600m households rely on bottled water for drinking and cooking. Existing water filter solutions by Brita, Culligan, PUR and other companies have failed to address this marketing due to cost, complexity, lack of innovation and customer engagement. TAPP Water leverages digital technology, sensors, biodegradable materials and the latest innovation in water filtration to fill the gap. Thanks to this we can provide clean tap water as a service in innovative ways that wasn't possible just 3 years ago. We are the Spotify of tap water. The products include TAPP 1: First generation water filter with 1200 liter capacity (approximately 3-4 months) removing 70+ contaminants with a low cost entry point of around $35. TAPP 2: Second generation water filter with a 1-2 micron carbon block made of organic coconut shells for great tasting clean water removing 80+ common contaminants. The filter comes in two versions including i) Twist with has a manual dial to set reminders for replacing the filters but can also be used with the MyTAPP platform and ii) Click with a Bluetooth button that activates the MyTAPP app to provide the filter status, cost savings, bottles eliminated and more. TAPP 3: Third generation launching in 2019 with water flow and temperature sensors to provide more accurate data on filter replacements. TAPP 4: Fourth generation funded by a EU H2020 grant launching 2020 with sensors constantly monitoring the quality of the water. In addition to this we provide water bottles, filter water bottles and shower filters.
