Sanjay Athavle, a resident of Kothrud, recycles waste water from his bathroom daily to water the plants with the help of a pump, which is powered by pedaling a cycle. Athavle has been practising this for last four years and recycles approximately 300-400 litre of water everyday.
‘’I came up with this idea as every summer, Pune faces acute shortage of water. The process starts with diverting the water from bathroom pipeline to a water tank, which is purified twice, using cleansing mechanism that includes sand, stones and coconut waste.This water then flows to the next pit that acts as a storage. The next pit also contains fishes to avoid any breeding of mosquitoes. The purification makes sure the water doesn’t stink. Later, the recycled water is pumped by the means of a pedal to the garden with the system of drip irrigation,’’ he said.

The family practises this throughout the year. Each minute of cycling provides around 30-40 litre of water to the garden and also helps the family to get their amount of daily exercise.
Athavle, an owner of ITfirm, said: “Many students have visited us and have taken up the idea for which they have won gold medals. The intital requirement is that the ground leveling should be done so that the flow of water happens naturally.’’
