RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
problem 1. In order to use the 0.4 micron membrane filter, the pressure of around 1kgf/cm2(14psi) is necessary. 2. When the membrane filter is used, some particles will accumulate on the surface of the filter. It is necessary to back-flush the filter in order to clean it and not hinder the efficiency. 3.Most undeveloped country cannot use electricity. 4.The system should be user friendly. solution 1.The necessary pressure is made from the weight of an adult (40-80kg/100-200 lbs). To resist this much pressure the size of membrane filter is 7-10 cm (2.8-3.9 inches) diameter. 2. The necessary pressure for operation is generated by the weight of person. To clean it, turn the system upside down and reverse the pressure to the other side.

CHALLENGE:
Initially it was challenged to find how membrane filters work ideally in an appropriate shape. However, I have decided two cone shapes that are base side back to back so the body creates space for extra filers. second challenge was back flushing. membrane expert said back flushing extend use-by date of filters. upside-down action can makes product could be intuitable for less-educated people in under-developed country.
