Why would anyone want a connected smart water filter?
Too often technology is integrated with devices because it can be but not because it solves a problem. Recent examples include connected toasters (Griffin), tooth brushes (Oral B) and juice makers (Juicero) and ovens (June).
The Internet of Things and technology can be extremely useful though. Think of climate control (Nest), lights (Philips Hue and Ikea Smart Lightning), door locks (August and Yale) and home sensors (Minut Point). The common key to success is that they solve consumer problems.
What is the #jointheTAPPrevolution? In most of North America and Europe we are fortunate enough to have clean healthy water. Despite this, more and more people are replacing tap water with bottled water. This year more than 250 billion bottles of water will be sold where of less than 10% are recycled.

At TAPP Water we promote drinking of tap water through education, marketing, affordable water filters, refillable bottles and other tools and products. We present the facts based on known science about drinking water, contaminants, health impact and more.

What is TAPP 1?
TAPP 1 is a water filter that is easy to install and use. It can be installed on the kitchen faucet in less than a minute and without any tools. A little switch makes it easy to change betwen filtered and unfiltered water (e.g. for dishes).
Do you like sparkling water?
Great! So do hundreds of millions of other people around the world. It’s refreshing and healthy, as it often replaces other sugary drinks.
Unfortunately there is also a dark side of sparkling water, as more than 75% of sparkling water sold comes in plastic bottles. Out of these, less than 10% are recycled worldwide.
So what’s the alternative? Sodastream
To produce sparkling water at home you need two things:
Fresh clean water A carbonating device
If you’re lucky then your tap water is already good enough. As a first step just fill up a bottle and put it in the fridge to make it cold.
If the tap water tastes bad and/or is polluted then you … Read more…
“TAPP 2 looks amazing but I don’t understand why I have to pre-order it on a crowdfunding page?” – Anonymous customer
In the past 5 years, crowdfunding pages such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo have become synonymous with innovative technology. Well known examples include Occulus VR, Pebble watch, Coolest Cooler and Amabrush. Each one of them had worked on the technology for years but used crowdfunding to launch to a community of people that embrace new solutions to solve problems in our day-to-day life’s. Tech for social good is a big category.
Crowdfunding helps companies validate ideas, solutions, technology and market communication early on. More importantly though, it gives consumers early and highly discounted access to new products and services … Read more…
