Firm to introduce unique water-producing machines

By Staff | Sep 20, 2018

The Tsunami 500 home outdoor unit produces up to an estimated 200 gallons of pure drinking water daily “out of thin air.” A free Upcountry demonstration starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, at Waiohuli Hawaiian Homestead.

KULA – A Pacific Northwest firm will present on Maui the world debut of a home unit that extracts pure drinking water from atmospheric humidity.

The unit generates an estimated 50 to 90 gallons per day, and up to 200 gallons per day, on Maui, according to Industrial Design/Development Engineer Ted Bowman of Tsunami Products in Liberty Lake, Washington.

Bowman will unveil the prototype Tsunami 500 home outdoor unit at a free mini-lecture/demonstration starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, at 393 Pueo Drive in Waiohuli Hawaiian Homestead.

Bowman also will demonstrate a hybrid of the Tsunami 1,000 atmospheric-condensation machine that produces 450 gallons of water daily and the Tsunami fodder-sprouting unit that grows more than 100 pounds per day of fresh feed for livestock.

The demonstration is open to the public, especially farmers, ranchers and homeowners. For product information, go to tsunamiproducts.com.

The Upcountry-based nonprofit Pa’upena Community Development Corporation (CDC) is co-sponsoring the event.

Pa’upena CDC’s mission is to provide training and resources for Native Hawaiian homesteaders to build homes and self-sufficient communities.
