About Us

Supporting SDG 6

Waterquest is purpose-driven for-impact startup, founded in October 2015. To overcome physical water scarcity beyond the conventional paradigms of hydrogeology we have 3 Disruptive Proven Solutions.

Waterquest started its journey as a responsible organization focused on developing decentralized, perennial, climate-resilient, sustainable water sources for drinking water, irrigation, and industrial use by deploying its proprietary solution for discovering, accessing & managing self-recharging water veins/underground rivers. We have 1200+ wells all over the world with this product and all wells are currently working.

Upon success we decided to have a solution to diagnose and monitor water parameters. With this concept, we developed WaterRx - a sensor-based IoT device to monitor the water parameter and an AI-driven logical algorithm also diagnose as well as prevent the failure of the water system. The combination of these two products can solve major water problems available in the world.

But this product can not supply a temporary or flexible water supply system specially for disaster management or temporary drought-affected area. For this purpose, WaterQuest Mobile™ is developed which can treat any water to drinkable water without requirement of external power supply. This can also treat seawater into drinking water. The device is designed to serve in any area with complete mobility.

We are supported by IWB and incubated from EDI.
