The Western world celebrates Easter, and Thailand gets ready for Songkran, the traditional Thai New Year celebration (Thai: สงกรานต์ Songkran). Known the world-over for its characteristic tradition of water-throwing ranging from a courteous sprinkle or a polite splash, to harmless water pistols and showers from garden hoses to the well-aimed bucket or water-cannon delivered in a festive spirit - A big water throwing festival!

The water is meant as a symbol of washing all of the bad away

The throwing of water originated as a way to pay respect to people, by gently pouring a small amount of lustral water on other people’s hands or over a shoulder as a sign of respect. Among young people the holiday evolved to include dousing strangers with water to relieve the heat, since April is the hottest month in Thailand (temperatures can rise to over 100°F or 40°C on some days). This has further evolved into water fights and splashing water over people riding in vehicles.

The best moment to start thinking about water - clean water that is!

After almost one year of preparation Germany's BioClean GmbH and Thailand's Jimmy Anderson Contribution Co., Ltd. decided to join forces and to make Germany's advanced microfiltration technology available for Thailand. Jimmy Anderson Contribution Co., Ltd. will start to offer the BioClean waste water treatment products, and deliver and install them anywhere in Thailand.

And if this will only ensure that there is enough clean water in Thailand to celebrate the next Songkran, then it was worth it.
