Proper Water Catchment Sequence
  1. Collection surface selection
  2. Particulate filtration
  3. Storage tank size & location
  4. Booster pump
  5. Pressure tank
  6. Ultra-Violet purifier, preceded & followed by 1-micron filters. Carbon block filter at sink.
  7. Hot water tank plumbed to solar water panels
  8. Water conservation devices & efficient systems and general water use reduction.                    For example: composting toilets, timing of water usage, flow restrictors, Staber clothes washer, graywater re-use.
  9. Efficient, effective and sanitary graywater disposal.
  10. Provisions for excessive water overflow during wet periods.
