Chandrasekaran Jeyaraman



Founded in 2009 by the benign efforts of Chandrasekaran. J, an expert in Plastics Technology, the proprietary firm “Custom Parts Online” started making many innovative products to address the soaring needs of common people.

The name WATSAN was coined by blending the words ‘Water’ and ‘Sanitation’, which are the two main aspects of our establishment. WATSAN’s sole purpose is to provide water and sanitary solutions to the rural population by manufacturing and distributing low-cost, yet effective electricity-free water filters to urban slums and rural families who cannot afford other expensive options.

Since the inception of the water purifier unit, WATSAN gained a prominent place in the rural market. Soon after, the modular toilet unit was established to attend to the thriving sanitary requirements of the nation. WATSAN is committed to deliver quality drinking water and sanitary requirements with eco-friendly resources at an affordable price tag. WATSAN’s pioneering steps in bringing welfare to the nation has been recognized and had been lauded with numerous awards for the great services it has offered.
