The Jompy is an environment-friendly, fuel-efficient waterboiler. It can be used over any open flame and de-contaminates the water as it passes through.
The Jompy Water Boiler is a lightweight and inexpensive fire top device which sits between cooking pots on an open flame. It enables households to cook a meal while at the same time heating water to temperatures high enough to kill 98% of waterborne bacteria, thereby making it safe to drink or use the water for cooking or bathing. Gravity pushes the water through the Jompy Water Boiler, which then delivers near boiling hot water within seconds and at a rate of one litre per minute. It works equally efficient on stoves or simple three stone fires, making it suitable for the use in both rural areas, as well as, urban dwellings. Through a more efficient use of the cooking fire, the Jompy Water Boiler also dramatically reduces fuel costs for poor families.
