Abstract: The researchers aimed to design a system that is capable of filtering the contaminants in water. The system provides better tasting and better smelling drinking water by removing chlorine and bacterial contaminants. The system also removes the unwanted color of the water. In terms of accuracy for determining the desired volume of water in the container, the system was set to a specified period for how long it is designed to stop and switch the source of water. The water per container cannot overflow. The machine is a fully automatic filtered drinking water vending machine, offering a touch less faucet that you can use it without a switch. Furthermore, by the use of the Microcontroller Based Wastewater system, accuracy is obtained. It is an automated device that can provide a safe, affordable and readily available drinking water.
