Off Grid Rainwater System Collects, Stores, and Purifies Water (Video)

Categories: Rainwater Harvesting

Whether you are trying to save a few dollars on your water bill, are concerned about water conservation, or you just want to be independent and off grid, Rainwater harvesting and storage is viable for almost any situation and amount of water needed.The system is relatively simple and very low maintenance. 

Water is collected using a three hundred square foot piece of metal roofing, where it flows downhill into a gutter.  It is passed through a layer of plastic mesh as it runs into the gutter to filter out any large debris, including the needles that drop onto the roof from surrounding trees.  The water is then passed through a course filter as it leaves the gutter, filtering out even more of the larger debris.
