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).

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.

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.


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