Water from Heaven - Hemel(s)water

Drinking water made of rain from own roof. Sustainable water purification and storage for dry seasons.
System complete and qualified.
Technology has been proven to work in its final form and under expected conditions. In almost all cases, this TRL represents the end of true system development. Examples include developmental test and evaluation (DT&E) of the system in its intended weapon system to determine if it meets design specifications.
Testing plan completed
The testing plan and the BRIGAID’s Testing Innovation Framework (TIF) has been rightly applied and finished. The TRL of the innovation has been effectively reached.
Business plan completed
The BRIGAID Business Development Programme has been successfully completed. A MAF+ assessment has been conducted and its results have been enriched and incorporated into a business plan document.
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.
