Justin commented on Water2Go

Well the idea is that by having the water supply taken care of (by building on top of existing water infrastructure) keeping systems running would involve just replacing industrial-level filters. Of course, we're assuming that implementing this type of process would work under a reasonable budget. If there isn't a water supply to tap into, I think that problem should be addressed first, before making drinking water a priority.

Justin commented on Water2Go

Ah, true. The overhead on this idea is pretty steep, and a scalable implementation does indeed assume that water is reasonably available. We were thinking downtown Los Angeles or Santa Monica would be a good place to start, if this idea was brought to fruition. I hope the water challenges in India can be resolved so ideas like Water2Go could be implemented over there. Thanks for the the response Manoj!
