Bring clean water to the world

Join Waterdrop for a life-changing experience.

Watch how

Turn your everyday tasks into clean, safe water.

Every time you learn about, select or specify Xylem products, you collect drops. For every drop you collect, Xylem puts money toward building water towers for schools and communities in need. Let the simple steps you take each day create a better life for children and families all over the world. You may even win a once-in-a-lifetime volunteer trip to help Xylem build a tower. Together, let’s solve water.
