Balde a Balde: Safe Agua??This is a portable faucet that delivers running water from any container. A specialized clip attaches the unit to an existing bucket. A squeeze of the pump initiates a flow of water. Tapping the spout instantly turns the water on and off, while twisting the valve regulates the volume. Balde a Balde harnesses gravity to bring the dignity and health benefits of running water to the 3 billion people living without it.
