Rainmaker Investor FAQs
What does Rainmaker do?
Rainmaker’s purpose is to produce safe drinking water for communities in need so they can thrive and never go thirsty.
Across the world, fresh water is unevenly distributed. Many regions are desperately under-served, including North Africa, the Middle East, India, Mexico, large portions of South America, and many islands. There are vast regions looking for solutions that will deliver fresh drinking water where it’s needed.
We provide drinking water responsibly. We offer a suite of Air-to-Water and Water-to-Water technologies. These products deliver a better, more economical way to provide safe drinking water. Air-to-Water harvests fresh water from humidity in the atmosphere, while Water-to-Water transforms non-potable (waste, salty, polluted, grey, or brackish) water into safe drinking water.
All can be wind or solar powered, so they leave no carbon traces. There are also options for grid and generator-powered models.
What products does the company make?
Rainmaker builds two types of energy-efficient, fresh water-producing technologies:
- Air-to-Water, which harvests fresh water from the air
- Water-to-Water, which transforms seawater or polluted water into drinking water
Our technology is both wind and solar powered, is deployable anywhere, and leaves no carbon traces. We also offer options for hybrid, grid and diesel-powered models.
Air-to-Water units are available in three standard sizes, producing 5,000, 10,000 or 20,000 liters of drinking water per day.
Water-to-Water units are also available in three standard sizes producing 37,500, 75,000 or 150,000 liters per day. This makes each unit suitable for communities of 200 to 3,000 people, depending on number of units deployed.
What are the markets for your products?
Markets for our Air-to-Water technologies:
- Humanitarian applications in traditional areas of water scarcity
- Island and rural communities with limited fresh water supplies

- Corporations looking for energy-efficient technology to clean and potentially reuse waste water
- Cities or regional governments restoring rivers, lakes and harbors
How are the products sold?
Rainmaker partners with local and regional distributors around the world.
Who is Rainmaker’s competition in the Air-to-Water and Water-to-Water markets?
There are a number of companies that produce either Air-to-Water or Water-to-Water equipment.
However, in our sweet spot of serving communities of 200 to 3,000 people, we offer many distinct competitive advantages including:
- Cost. Our patented technology means our cost per liter of water is highly competitive in the marketplace.
- Capacity. Rainmaker produces more liters per day than most competitors under the same climatic and energy conditions.
- Choice of sizes. We offer units with water capacity sized to specific market demand.
- Long-term cost effectiveness. Our units require minimal maintenance and operational expenditure.
- Choice of power sources. We offer choice of wind, solar, grid or generator. Others typically offer fewer choices or only grid connections.
- Set-up time. Deployment as fast as 90 days after purchase order; operational within 14 days after containers arrive on location.
- Footprint. Our on-the-ground footprint is smaller which means much more flexibility in location.
Competitors considered include Ecoloblue, Saisons Technocom Pvt. Ltd., Watair Incorporation, Dew Point Manufacturing, Active World Corporation Technologies and WaterMaker India Pvt. Ltd.
We do not compete in the markets for household-size units, or on the other extreme, desalination for cities or countries such as San Diego or Israel.
