However, the current international travel restrictions put a hold on our plans to return to Uganda for field trials. Determined not to let this slow our progress, we drew on a bit of resourcefulness and adaptability and decided to simulate a field trial in the suburban garden of our CEO, Francesca. This involved erecting a 6-metre-high water tower, installing our water treatment system onto the side, and then assessing its functionality and operating range.
