This Smart Water System Could Replace Plastic Bottles In Your Home

By Kristin Hunt

People buy plastic water bottles for all kinds of reasons, but one of the biggest is the fear over contaminated tap water. Depending on where you live, there might be lead, arsenic, or mercury in the water that spills out of your sink — and when you can’t trust your own tap, it’s completely natural to turn to individually sealed, single-use plastic bottles. 

rOcean is seeking to address this problem with a more sustainable solution that filters, flavors, and carbonates water at the press of a button.

The rOcean One is a smart device that connects directly to your faucet through an included kit. It takes the water from your tap and then filters it, purging up to 75 contaminants in the process. Much like SodaStream and other home soda makers, it can also carbonate the water and flavor it with a reusable rPod.
