Potpaz is a water treatment used by sixty-five South African housesholds and has been proven of having an aspect of its design that needs to be modified for the improvement of the water filter that suits for its intended use in rural areas. With the desire to help the South African Households, the Improved Ceramic Filter for rural househods is created, a more usable and suitable product compared to the existing product, the Potpaz.
