Rainwater harvesting innovation
Among the major innovations we brought to market in 2020 were water tanks and rainwater harvesting in India. We saw an opportunity in an adjacent segment we were not operating in and used that to drive significant business growth.

Instead of marketing a single component, we offer an end-to-end solution for rainwater harvesting, which helps customers conserve water in line with government regulations. With anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties, our water tanks also provide significant health benefits.
We are the first to offer a complete system like this in India, and there is growth potential in other geographies for similar rainwater harvesting systems.
Addressing the challenges of urbanisation
Besides addressing water management challenges, we also play a role in supporting growing urbanisation. For example, we provide advanced solutions in wastewater and drainage systems for high-rise buildings.
We work with universities to design solutions for the most difficult problems, using various testing scenarios, including pressure simulations. Using a lift tower, we carry out experiments in collaboration with the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, helping us to develop a series of unique products, ideally suited for high-rise buildings.
Our special pressure regulators help to manage water in a high-rise building – where something as simple as flushing a toilet on the 50th floor results in complicated technical challenges. That creates large pressure fluctuations, which can be difficult to manage.
