Abstract: The human body contains majority of fluids like water and minerals. Water also termed as the ĎElixir of lifeí and most important source of living of a human being along with food and air. More than Seventy percent of the brain is made of water, while blood contains of 80 percent water. Water is vital for nearly every bodily function, Water transports the nutrients from foods into the bloodstream, then on to the each cells in the body. A well-hydrated body has good levels of oxygen. Water with a molecular structure consisting two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. The body can't properly burn or stores of energy without oxygen. And Lack of fluid (water) weakens the immune system, and makes a person more vulnerable to get affected from disease. Water purification is the process of removing undesirable pro-chemicals, biological matters, and suspended solids from contaminated water. Our proposed water purification system is aimed for remote areas and focus on providing a pure drinking water at more economical cost with high reliability to the families in remote village. This involves the research, design and manufacture of water purification system using only renewable energy. It consist of a combination of solar energy, reverse osmosis (RO) and ultraviolet (UV) lamp sterilizer system with power supplied by photovoltaic (PV) panels. It is an effective method to eliminate bacteria, viruses and protozoan in contaminated water .This method is made portable, cost effective, user friendly and energy efficient enough to meet the needs of drinking water. The main objective of this research is to use the available energy with high efficiency, hence Direct current (DC) source is used to power the RO purification system
