Precipitating Change 

David Hertz, founder of Skysource and SEA (Studio of Environmental Architecture) has integrated Skysource’s air to water technology into his studio in Venice Beach, CA to produce up to 150 gallons of water every day. The water is free to the public to use, and it is being used to water Community Healing Garden’s Garden Boxes in Venice.

A Condensed Solution For Water Self-Reliance

About Skywater


A Condensed Solution For Water Self-Reliance

What is Skywater?

Over 600 million people live without an access to clean drinking water. Water scarcity is becoming a growing problem and less than 3% of the planet’s water is fresh. The solution is all around us. If we just look up, there’s more fresh water in the atmosphere than all the rivers on earth, yet we haven't tapped into this vast supply...until now. 

Our Skywater machines are atmospheric water generators that use a patented process to condense moisture in the atmosphere and filter it, making fresh drinking water. Each Skywater model produces enough fresh water from air for a household use or emergency relief efforts, and does it more efficiently than any other method of moisture extraction or filtration. Skywater machines are ranging from Skywater 30 (up to 30 gallons of water each day) to Skywater 300 (up to 300 gallons of water a day).

How DOEs IT WORK?

Skywater machines use a patented Adiabatic Distillation Process, where water vapor is reduced to liquid without a gain or loss of heat. Refrigeration techniques maintain a dew point within a condensation chamber, which will maximize water production from the existing atmospheric condition. The higher the humidity and temperature, the more water can be produced. After condensation, the water is filtered and treated with ozone to enhance its taste and prevent potentially hazardous micro-organisms from forming and the water can be used or stored for future use.

WHY SKYWATER?

Skywater_Skysource_BigSur

Our machines require a lower capital cost and are the most energy efficient and productive systems on market today. Skywater machines are much cheaper and more efficient than water desalination, and not dependent on rainfall. We are providing a solution for water self-reliance, that can be adapted to almost any climate, and can be powered by alternate energy sources such as solar panels or by biofuel gassifiers.

As the “build green” revolution takes hold worldwide, new developers recognize the need to find ways to make homes and offices more efficient.  Skywater is the latest in water technology. Develop homes with the option of this modern kitchen appliance in the form of a compact unit for family use, and supply your development projects or emergency relief efforts with the Skywater 300 for a total “off the grid” water system capable of delivering 300 gallons a day.

IS SKYWATER A GOOD SOLUTION FOR ME?

We are happy to discuss and help you becoming water self-reliant. Skywater is an ideal solution for

  • Residential & Business Office Sectors 
  • Real Estate/Land Developers/Architectural firms
  • Mass Market Retail/Home Building Centers 
  • Manufacturers wanting a green process water supply
  • Agriculture/Farming/Hydroponics
  • Water Treatment Distributors

Fresh water is our most valuable resource.

The pale blue dot


Fresh water is our most valuable resource.

Water covers 71% of the earth's surface.
97% of the water on earth is in the oceans, and of the remaining 3%, half is frozen in the polar ice caps. The remaining 1.5% is Earth's supply of fresh water, and we are consuming it faster than ever. Rainfall and river water can not sustain humanity's growing water needs in many parts of the world. There is more fresh water in the atmosphere than in all of the rivers of the planet combined. This is a tremendous opportunity, and this is where Skysource can help you becoming water self reliant.
At any moment, the atmosphere contains about 37.5 million billion gallons of water. If all of the water in the atmosphere rained down at once, it would cover the globe to a depth of an inch.

Earth's Water Supply

A majority of the world’s population lives within a 30-mile radius of water sources that are badly stressed or running out.   Water is being removed from ground sources 15 times faster than it is being replenished.  Worldwide we are losing approximately 75 Billion cubic meters of fresh water annually, and according to the G7 Summit, it is estimated that in less than 50 years there could be a collapse of our planet's water sources.

"Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

-Carl Sagan, The Pale Blue Dot

The wall of water

For most of human history, life was centered around a community's source of water.  People who lived far away from rivers built wells and the entire community would gather around it. In this spirit, we had the idea of using our own 150-gallon Skywater machine to serve as a source of water for the Venice community at large.

The Mural

To illustrate the idea and history of water as a source of community, we worked with a local artist to paint a mural to highlight the bottle filling station. The bottle filling station is open to the public, and since it's installation in 2016, it has served hundreds of thirsty locals and visitors.

Working with Community Healing Gardens

Our Skywater machine makes 150 gallons of fresh water every day, which is more than enough for our office and visitors. The rest of the water is donated to Community Healing Gardens, a non-profit which maintains planters in Venice. Community Healing Gardens created urban gardens to provide sustainable, nutritious food to diverse and underserved communities. Their goal is to create organic gardens in schools throughout the L.A. Unified School District, to educate and introduce the importance of nutrition, health, food safety and environmental sustainability. To learn more about the wonderful work Community Healing Gardens does, visit their website and watch a short video below.

Community Healing Gardens - We love water!
