New Hydropanel R3® Provides Perfect Quality Drinking Water at Home

SOURCE GLOBAL, developer of the SOURCE® Hydropanel, the world’s first technology to sustainably generate renewable drinking water from the atmosphere, has launched Hydropanel R3,® a drinking water solution designed for anyone who wants high-quality, renewable drinking water, where they need it the most, at home.

“Globally, we know that over 2 billion people don’t have safe drinking water at home. And in the US, issues with foul wells, failing infrastructure, and fetching bottled water are commonplace. The Hydropanel R3 gives homeowners an easy to install way to solve their drinking water needs,” said SOURCE Global Founder and CEO, Dr. Cody Friesen. “Our technology enables us to provide high quality, safe drinking water essentially anywhere on the planet, and now we have a readily installable, shippable version for the US consumer.”

The Hydropanel R3, which operates completely off-grid, uses solar energy to move air through special water vapor absorbing materials. This water is then released from these materials and condensed, then sent to an in-home, pressurized tank where it’s mineralized — for health and taste — and stored until dispensed from a refrigerator water dispenser or a dedicated tap.

Because the Hydropanel R3 was designed with consumers in mind, professional installation isn’t necessary. When fully installed, the 4' x 6' and 44" tall Hydropanel produces the equivalent of an average of 180, 16.9 oz bottles of perfectly mineralized drinking water, every month in temperate environments.

The R3 also helps consumers reduce their carbon footprint, offsetting the environmental impact of plastic waste, and simultaneously lower cost. On average, it saves roughly 51,000 plastic bottles from being used during its typical lifespan.

Knowing when, where and how their drinking water is produced gives consumers unprecedented ownership and agency when it comes to drinking water. The R3 provides a level of transparency, quality, and confidence that doesn’t exist with municipal, or well water.

The Hydropanel R3 can be ordered today in: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, central and southern California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, southern Nevada, Oklahoma, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. To learn more visit, R3.
