Stonehouse Water Technologies LLC, an early stage startup developing water purification products for communities has just completed their first funding round totaling $1.55M. The strong financing round exceeded the initial goals set forth by Stonehouse Water Technologies President Hensley Foster.

Stonehouse’s patent pending technology provides a unique and modular energy efficient water purification system for residential, commercial, and agricultural properties, all contained in the space the size of a dehumidifier.
