Water from Heaven - Hemel(s)water

Drinking water made of rain from own roof. Sustainable water purification and storage for dry seasons.
Technology validated in relevant environment.
Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components.
Two prototpes are tested at different environments: 1) A first pilot was installed at Ecovillage Boekel in February 2016 and is still running 2) A second pilot was performed at Heijmans One (a mobile house). Heavenly water together with the Tesla power wall made this house utility independent.

How does it work?

Water is collected from the roof and stored in a storm water collection tank (large enough to collect extreme rainfall) then by gravity the water is purified by an ultra filtration membrane system that removes bacteria and viruses. The water is stored in a pure water tank, large enough to overcome droughts. An optional pump allows water flows in house for showering etc.
