etty, a solvatten user from Mpigi district has been using the device for just over 4 months. She uses it for mainly heating water for drinking, making tea and for bathing on the not so hot days. Solvatten has saved her the expense of buying firewood for boiling water. She says that firewood is very expensive during the rainy season where only three pieces are sold for Ugx 1000 which isn't even enough to boil 10 litres of water.
She says that the water she gets from the Solvatten unit
is enough for her needs. Normally, she harvests rain water from her roof and occasionally from the tap. Some of her friends witnessed just how much her life had been made easier by using the device and decided to purchase a few for themselves.
