Grundfos AQtap is an intelligent water ATM that addresses some of the main challenges of providing reliable and sustainable water supply in the developing world.

General Details


Through an integrated platform for revenue collection and online management of water kiosks, Grundfos AQtap supports the financial viability and accountability of water service operations.

Grundfos AQtap is a single product that combines three elements essential to smarter water management:

  • Smart cards – where water credits are stored on WaterCards
  • AQtap water ATM unit – where water is tapped and credits managed
