About Paqua

Paqua was founded with a clear goal in mind: to develop a sustainable water purification system that avoids the typical chlorine-based solutions by using zero-carbon filtration and low energy systems.

We knew our solution had to not only be sustainable, but also reliable, low-maintenance, and meeting the highest of safety standards. At Paqua, our approach has always been to think creatively and to problem solve.

This together with our passion for the accessibility of fresh, safe drinking water is what motivates us every day, and is what has led to our development of PaquaVida Water Purification Systems.

Our approach has always been to think creatively and problem-solve. We are passionate about the accessibility of wholesome drinking water that doesn’t cost the earth and this is what motivates us every day and what has led to our development of PaquaVida Water Purification Systems.
