Welcome to SmartFit Tanzania

We are an eco-tech social enterprise with a motivation to build sustainable technologies for Africa. Our signature Project "Ecowater" designs, develop and deploy self-operated water purification and vending machines to enable communities in sub-Saharan Africa with an easy access to clean and safe drinking water at an affordable cost and in a way which does not endanger our environment with plastic bottles.

The Challenge

Access to clean, safe and affordable drinking water has been a challenge to many people and communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. More than half of the people in major cities and Urban areas drink bottled water regularly. This is true especially during day time when people are away for work; they rely on bottled water of which not everyone can afford. Others would find their solution by buying cheap refrigerated water packed in plastic papers which is neither safe nor clean.

Bottled water is Expensive

The cost of a liter of bottled water costs the same as a day’s worth of cooking, washing, showering, and toilet flushing. Shockingly, bottled water is between 200 and 1,000 times more expensive than tap water. Comparatively, if a family paid bottled water prices for tap water, their monthly water bill would be close to $9,000!

Environment is at Risk

A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number will jump another 20% by 2021. It is estimated that by 2050, the oceans will contain more plastic waste than fish. Most plastic bottles used for water are made from polyethylene terephthalate (Pet), which is highly recyclable; shockingly only 1 in 20 may be recycled in Africa

Health is at Risk

According to WHO, every minute a newborn dies from infection caused by lack of safe water and unclean environment. Contaminated drinking water is estimated to cause 502,000 diarrhoeal deaths each year. Bisphenol A (BPA) and other chemicals used to make plastic bottles poses danger to those considering bottled water as an alternative.

Our Solution

Imagine what will happen to the price of drinking water and our environment; if water is not bottled and transported to far ends! Imagine if we can install filtration systems on our taps or water purification fountains all around. Imagine if everyone is carrying a stainless steel or a glass bottle that we can refill!

Ecowater is a cheap and easy alternative to bottled water, providing unlimited access to cold, filtered and purified water on the go. As part of our solution we are designing, developing and deploying commercial grade and sophisticated water purification and vending machine that dispenses filtered and pure water at different public areas around the cities and towns. With Ecowater more people can afford safe drinking water, less plastic waste is produced and local economies benefit by saving money that would have been spent on bottled water. Ecowater can be sold for a fraction of the price of bottled water!

Our Technology

Ecowater provides a series of innovative and sustainable water solutions that seek to enable easy access to clean, safe and affordable water. We use sophisticated technologies that reduces human efforts to produce water products in a way that does not endanger our environment. We are developing and deploying commercial grade and sophisticated water purification and vending machine that dispenses filtered and pure water at different public areas around the cities in Tanzania, and to start with; at different University Campuses around the country. The vending process involves the use of eco-friendly re-usable water bottles and a cashless PayGo system.

Our Machines

Each of our machine is an independent min water plant. Our machines are simply connected to municipal water and can handle all purification processes without human effort. Inside the machine there is an insulated pure water tank with a capacity of 200 litres. The UV-Light sterilizer in the pure water tank inhibit bacteria growth. There is also a bottle washing unit within the machine and Ozone Sterilizer that sprays gas to sterilize bottle mouth and water filling compartment.

Our Process

Our water stations purify municipal/city water to make it clean, safe and tasty for drinking. The water purification system in our machines goes through nine different steps including Quartz sand filtration, Activated carbon filtration, PP Filtration, RO Purification, Post Activated Carbon Filter, Mineral Filtration, Uv-Light Sterilization and Ozone sterilization. Our proprietary 9x Advanced Purification process allows us to offer water that’s more purified than any other water refill station,

Our Cloud Platform

Our cloud platform allows us to monitor our machines remotely, providing real time hydraulic and commercial data. The inbuilt quality system in the machine uses M2M technology so that when TDS level, pH and mineral values do not come up with specific standards then our machine will stop vending and send an error message to our Cloud Platform. With an online portal and mobile App, Our Customers are able to track their account balance and the impact they make on reduced plastic bottles and money saved
