So I was watching "The Martain" about a week ago and it got me to thinking, I understand a lot of people have created home brew filter mechanisms to re-purpose water for various uses, such as irrigating flowers or lawns. I also know that there are filtration systems such as reverse osmosis which basically strip water back to its basic composition. And I also know there's a lot of people who live in small cities or towns that constantly fail their water quality tests and they live to tell about it.
With all of that in mind, I started doing some homework on what it would require to recycle water for showers, laundry and possibly sink usage. Then I came across this: https://showerloop.org/
Was wondering if anyone had thoughts on this? The system can keep up with a household flow of water (2.5gpm) based on about a 5 gallon reservoir. So I thought, as long as you didn't try to run everything at once, could a system like this with a 45 gallon fresh water tank unlock some impressive conservation capabilities and extend a persons off-grid time by a considerable amount? And if so, knowing diesel fuel, dump station fees and water refill fees at places like parks can add up I wonder what the break-even point would be with a setup like this.
I'd also be curious about chemical testing recycled water after putting it through a distiller filtration system for trace elements of things like soaps, chemicals or contaminants.
Is it possible to strike water mule off the list of Skoolie lifestyle chores?
