To provide an alternative or supplemental source of fresh water for anyone who may be affected by drought or want to:
• Reduce dependency and save money on use of municipal water
• Assist in achieving self-sustainability
• Increase environmental and climatological awareness through data collection
• Secure water credits, tax incentives or certification where applicable
• Do this because it’s simply a new and cool idea and the right thing to do!
How it works:
Once waters particles from the air are intercepted by the mesh, they instantaneously drop to a trough below. The trough conveys the water droplets by gravity flow to where you want it stored for later use, such as a cistern, rain barrel or reservoir, or drain directly to an area where the water can be used immediately. We are working closely with the USGS to take advantage of the extensive fog mapping – weather data and the expertise of the agency. We will also contribute to the USGS’s data by equipping our Cloudfisher systems with instruments that will provide near real time data related to Fog to Water conversion.
Storm Water Collection
A storm, especially a heavy storm, can produce a lot of water. However, the majority of this runoff is wasted because either there is pavement allowing the water to leave or soils are not suitable to allow infiltration. Our fog nets are also designed to collect rainfall—in any amount. During prolonged or heavy storm events, large, continuous volumes of water can be collected in the troughs and conveyed directly to storage for future use
What Makes Fog2H20 Different?
Not only do we use advanced net material, our design, the fine mesh material used to intercept, capture and convey water droplets from the atmosphere is further enhanced by a patented nanoparticle technology from NBDnano. This nano technology increases water volume between 5-10 times compared to a typical standalone fog net. Our fog net systems require no electricity, are easily installed, and demand little maintenance. Fog2H2O features the proven and tested Cloudfisher™ fog to water system from Aqualonis. The large scale Cloudfisher™ Pro system is ideal for volume water production whereas the Cloudfisher™ Mini is well suited to testing, data collection and proof of performance applications. Cloudfisher™ is a proprietary water system from Aqualonis.
We are exclusive distributors of the proven Fog to Water Systems pioneered by Aqualonis in cooperation with the German Water institute under the guidance of industrial designer Peter Trautwein. Online at: www.aqualonis.com
These systems have been designed and modified over the last three years to withstand the brutal weather conditions of higher elevations in Northern Africa. The patented CloudFisher system features a structurally sound and fully engineered support structure as well as frame featuring the most productive fog nets available. The water capture design optimizes fog to water conversion and can accommodate rain capture as well with an optional attachment.
fog2H2o’s fog nets are coated or impregnated with NBD’s hydrophobic nano formula that insures extreme hydrophobicity or water shedding. We are excited to be partnering with nbdnano in increasing water yields. Online at: http://www.nbdnano.com/index.php
We are working closely with the USGS to provide valuable fog to water data thereby supporting their extensive fog mapping effort. These fog maps will help those who want to deploy Cloudfisher systems and climatologists in determining the best use of systems to supplant water supplies and mitigate the effects of climate change. www.usgs.gov?

What we offer:
Fog2H20 can recommend, design, build and maintain the best water harvesting system for your specific needs.
• Assessing fog availability in your area and determining how this system can reduce your demand on municipal or groundwater supply; We can help you asses ROI based upon Fog data and available credits or subsidies
• Designing a system to either store water or deliver it to where it is needed.
• Providing full installation and maintenance of the system.
Agriculture and Viticulture
• Deliver water directly from net to crops or vines using drip lines
• Nets are thin and linear and can be installed parallel to rows
Industrial and Commercial
• Replenish underground cisterns or water storage tanks for later use
• Nets can be installed on rooftops or along fence lines in parking lots
• Reduce dependency on municipal water and harvest water in rain barrels for later use
• Nets can be installed out of sight on roofmtops and connect to downspouts
Parks and Recreation
• Replenish ponds and distribute to vegetated landscape areas through irrigation systems
• Nets can be installed along fence lines or higher elevations, and can be painted or masked to improve visual aesthetics
Habitat Rehabilitation from Water Loss
• Replenish water in ecosystems suffering from water loss due to removal of tree canopy and erosion
• Nets can be used as a mitigation measure to regain water that is lost from removal of trees and can be located on exposed erodible surfaces or feed water systems.
