Water is one of the most important resources on any property. All life needs it, and as populations increase, it becomes scarce. It is a wise man that protects his supply of water from pollution and overuse. Because of this simple fact, great care must be given to the design of water systems and their components.
There are several off-grid sources of water, including rainwater catchment, wells, rivers and humidity in the air itself.
Storing your water, whether in cisterns, ponds or in the soil, is paramount to an off-grid home.
