This very useful list was compiled by Tom Termini – a member of our Cottageology Facebook Group – Thanks Tom!
Just a list of ideas for the systems to make a low cost and sustainable small home. My ideas, complied – your mileage may vary.
- Get Water from Rain
- A. Calculate Volume:
- B. Use IBCs
- C. Overview of a Rainwater System
- D. Filter, then UV Purify
To calculate how much rainwater can be harvested, multiply your rainfall (mm) by your roof surface area (m2) being used to catch rainwater. The resulting number represents how many litres of water you can expect can collect.
You can find IBC containers on Done Deal.
