Lishtot was built on one simple idea; that people deserve to know what's in their water. Founded in 2015, our goal is to build a set of products and services that will empower people to make informed decisions about the water around them. Our approach is two-fold, both to make our affordable, user friendly sensor technology accessible and to use these sensors to democratize water data by building a searchable Global Water Map.
The need to Know Your Water is especially acute today, with aging infrastructure, lead contamination, and chemicals entering our water streams.
Our goal is universal access to clean water. We envision a world where every drop of water that people drink has been certified clean and safe. With the integration of Lishtot's sensor technology into existing water infrastructure, information about water quality will become accessible and quantifiable. This active monitoring will in turn allow utilities, bottlers, and homeowners to better control water quality and to provide access to demonstrably clean water.
Lishtot is a company built on certain core values including integrity, honesty, and respect. The company is family friendly and committed to improving water quality for every person in every corner of the earth.
As Lishtot grows, it moved from Jerusalem to the Kiryat Gat Industrial Park. This park is designed for big companies like Lishtot intends to be and the view from the company office is Intel and HP's facilities.
Lishtot's products are made in Israel because, as an Israeli company, Lishtot believes in local manufacturing.
Lishtot partnered with Ha'Meshakem, an Israeli company devoted to vocational rehabilitation and the integration of people with disabilities into the local market. The final assembly of the TestDrop Pro is being done by Ha'Meshakem employees. Netanel adds "Dr. Bauer and I both have very close friends with disabilities, and as entrepreneurs we think part of our contribution to society should be giving people with disabilities the opportunity to work in a decent job"
Lishtot, like many technologies in history, is the result of an accidental discovery during a science experiment. Backed by a 17th century principle of science, modern literature reports, mountains of data, and years of research, we decided to found Lishtot and bring this technology to the world. At the very outset, we knew this technology had the power to change the way people know and interact with their water. Our dream is to bring water quality testing to the far reaches of the earth - from the sophisticated but aging water infrastructure of the West to the water stressed East. We will continue to release products that seamlessly integrate with your way of life, yet continue to give you quick, inexpensive, and accurate water quality data, contributing to a Global Water Map accessible to all. We thank you for your support and for visiting our website and we hope you will join us on our journey to Know Your Water.
