The Taraltec® Reactor for water disinfection provides Safe Water, Free From Harmful Microbes, Instantly, from borewell hand-pumps thus eliminating water borne diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera and typhoid.

The Taraltec® Reactor is ideal for all under-served remote areas as it has:

  • NIL opex, low capex.
  • Does not require any maintenance, or any consumables.
  • Does not need any fuel or electricity.
  • No need for specialised personnel for installation or fitting.
  • Needs no behavioural change in its usage.

The Taraltec® Reactor can be easily retrofitted into a hand pump – such as the India mark 2 model (the most widely used hand pump in the world), within an hour by even a local plumber with no special tools, by just sliding the reactor into the hand pump.

Over 1.4 B People Lack Access to Safe Water

Access to safe water is a global issue.

By 2025, over 1.4 billion people in 36 countries will get water that has disease-causing microbes and pathogens in it.

Currently,  663 million people lack access to safe water.

Source: WHO and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme Report of 2015.

In India, it has been estimated that by 2050, 45% of the population would be short of ‘safe’ water.

In the under-served rural area with its 6,50,000 villages, 85% of the water is sourced from ground water aquifers grossly contaminated with pollutants.

  • Nearly 38 million people are affected annually by water borne diseases.
  • 1.5 million children die of diarrhoea every year. Cholera and typhoid too cause widespread casualty.
  • 73 million working days are lost to water borne diseases each year.
  • ₹ 4000 Crore ($ 600 Million) is the estimated economic burden per year.


  • Boiling of Water
  • Filtering (recurring cost of changing filters at regular intervals)
  • Adding of chemicals (Chlorine etc.)
  • RO –Reverse Osmosis
  • UV –Ultra Violet


  • Recurring Operating Costs & Consumables, with significant carbon footprint (15 grams of CO2 emissions for every litre of water boiled)
  • Need intense monitoring and regular management
  • In RO, huge wastage of water
  • Imprecise chemical dosage has carcinogenic implications
