1. Steel meshes are available at a few shops in City market area. I did procure from a shop on SJP Road by the side of the Masjid - Jain Wire Netting Stores. Meshes are generally sold for a minimum length of 1 mtr. x 1 mtr. For smaller width, you may have to pay a premium, and sometimes may not be sold. For mosquito mesh, it would be generally available at most shops selling aluminum window parts.
The 75 micron 304 SS fine mesh of the size 12 inch x 12 inch is now available for retail sale at a price of Rs.230 plus 18% GST at the following shop in Bengaluru:

Fashion Trends
150, 80 Feet Road, Nandananavana Layout, (Next to Bharat Petroleum), Shivaram Karanth Nagar, Bengaluru 560077.
Contact: Umesh – 98866 10454.

Packing and postage extra – Rs.75 by Regd. Parcel.

It is available for purchase across the counter also at the above address.

As per newspaper report published a few months ago titled “Bengaluru's water a deadly drink”, “Poison in your tap: Sip faecal flow, metal mix”.

Bengalurean’s are consuming highly contaminated water as pathogens have invaded BWSSB taps and bore wells alike. A set of 150 groundwater samples from areas across the city showed the presence of mercury, nickel, magnesium, aluminium and nitrate. “At first, the dependency on bore well water needs to stop immediately”. Also micro-plastic is an emerging concern.

Hence, it is better for everyone who has a roof over his head to seriously consider Rainwater Harvesting for storage and direct use. It is in our hands to keep our rooftop clean.

Using a fine filter like the EFFECTIVE FILTERS, with its 75 micron extreme filtration mesh, it is possible to have much cleaner water devoid of metallic content, nitrates and fecal matter.

Rains have stopped. Pre-monsoon rains will start in the second half of May. We have about four months in our hand to be prepared for harvesting the rains.

It is wise to prepare for war during peace. Similarly, this is the right time to start making your EFFECTIVE rainwater harvesting filter so that you do not miss out on rains. Moreover, even during March and April there will be showers when the temperature goes up.

Harvest the rains and use the purest water!
