I was thinking about the idea of collecting rainwater on a bus. It would be an interesting concept to be more sustainable and off grid. I was wondering if anyone has done this or knows of any projects that use this.
I just started musing about it, and I know it probably wouldn't come close to fulfilling all water needs, but it could probably help a decent chunk. And hey, any little bit helps! I don't think a separate water tank would be needed for that as rainwater is actually quite pure and safe to drink, and I'm sure I'd have a filter on my water tank anyways. Obviously the roofs get quite dirty, but there must be a relatively simple way to clean the water.
I know there are some legal issues when it comes to collecting rainwater, but I'm sure it could be done very discreetly. But lets not focus too much of the legality for this thread, just brainstorming
Perhaps have some piping running around the edge of the roof (like gutters) to collect whatever would roll off and route it to the tank would be an efficient way to do this. Nothing else really comes to mind at the moment.
What are your thoughts and ideas on this?
