Hello, we are Join the Pipe

The first social network of tap water drinkers with the of dream building the longest water pipe in the world, long enough so that everyone, everywhere has access to clean drinking water. Join the Pipe promotes tap water drinking and helps developing nations gain access to clean drinking water and sanitation. We also work hard to bring awareness to the environmental impact of the production and waste of bottled water. With the sale of our tap water stations, refillable tap water bottles and donations, we finance water and sanitation projects in developing nations.

Our Story

A tap station for a clean and healthy community, school, sports club or company

Many people want the option of filling up their water bottle while they are out and about. It is an inexpensive, healthy and environmentally friendly option to have tap water accessible where children play and attend their sports. Our tap water is amongst the best in the world! It is healthy and offers less waste than bottled water. A tap water station can be placed anywhere! In a city or community square, a busy street corner, a bus station, park, school, sports field or even in the hallway of a company!

To date we’ve placed 450 tap water stations. Our tap water stations were developed in partnership with water companies in The Netherlands. They meet the highest quality standards, are vandal resistant and can be used year round. Every tap water station that we place is connected to a water project in a developing nation.

What we do

800 million people worldwide don’t have access to safe water and sanitation. The proceeds of our reusable tap water bottles, tap stations and donations fund water and sanitation projects in developing nations. To date we have completed 250 projects in Kenya, Tanzania, Congo Mozambique, Gambia, Benin and Bangladesh.

Water Kiosks at schools

By placing a water kiosks at schools we provide safe water for children and people in the community. Schools with clean water relates to less children sick from waterborne illnesses. As a result, school attendance goes up! By placing a water kiosk children have a chance at an education and are provided with clean water to bring home and have not worry about the hours of travel to get water from a contaminated source.

Water bottles

Most schools don’t have water, soap or toilet paper in their washrooms. Since most children drink water from their hands, this creates the possibility for waterborne illnesses to spread. To help prevent this, we provide water bottles for the children to drink from. This is an effective way to lessen the threat of waterborne illnesses.

Water-Saving Tap station

Our water stations not only provide clean drinking water but also saves water! Taps often stay open when there is no pressure to pump the water through. Then at night when the pressure is strong, the water pours out. No water is wasted with our auto-stop tap!

Hand washing facilities

Join the Pipe also takes care of the installation of sanitation facilities. We build toilets and sinks to help prevent waterborne illnesses to spread.

Tap water at festivals and in restaurants

More and more festivals are working towards becoming sustainable. A natural step would be to transition to tap water and reduce plastic water bottle waste. Experience from previous festivals like the Theater Festival Parade shows us that patrons are willing to pay for tap water. Join the Pipe can help by delivering bar taps voor cold water and sparking water plus tap water stations for backstage and on the festival grounds. There is also the option of printed reusable water bottles that can sold and filled at tap water stations. These bottles are great festival memorabilia! Contact us for more information.
