Well Water

IT TAKES LOTS OF WATER TO MAKE A Solitary GALLON OF TREATED WATER





Most R.O. Units will require some pressure.



Water pressure is what forces the water to want to go through finer and finer filters.



There are a myriad of types and compositions of filters available.




But enough of that, here's a heads-up!


The end-user is oblivious to the incredible loss of water that their Reverse Osmosis System slags off.





USE THAT WATER for other purposes!




The units themselves come with directions that direct the installer to drill a hole on the top of the exit-pipe, usually located under-the-sink.



Into that hole will go the black pipe from the R.O. unit, plumbing to drain off all the refused water.



Ohio Refuse Water

To give you an idea of just how much water is wasted in making a solitary gallon of filtered water,

the refuse water to make the 1gallon clean potable water fills the washer with the refuse (still looks crystal clear).



Springfield Ohio Water Treatment Alternative

The Findings?

The economy 110v washer can be completely filled by the overflow water from the R.O. unit,

just to make a solitary gallon of treated water!

Placement


The photo shown below is the water-heater relocated to the hold area.

Below the plate steel which the heater is resting upon, is another tank which is used for the reverse osmosis water treatment system.



The R.O. is partially visible on the right side of the water heater.



I chose this location (3rd move now) for a number of reasons.

Having the water heater close to the area in which the hot water is required delivers the hot water quicker.


It also wastes less heated water that otherwise would remain in a stretch of plumbing (a.k.a. stretch of hose).




Typically, when the water heater was located at some other remote location, the amount of water to run through the hose to the final destination was wasted water until the hot water caught up.


Now the hot water is almost instaneous due to its close proximity.




The hardest part of the setup was the relocation of the power structure/rail required to run the water heater.




The plastic, that is seen in the photo above draped over the water heater, is to shed any standing water.








Off-gridders battery maintenance requires distilled water.



In the case of the distillery below, the pressure cooker serves three purposes.


Diy Water Distillery

1.) 2015-2016 tomato canning season are still being consumed to this 2018 year! There was an incredible year for tomatoes in 2015-2016, and virtually all of the canning was done in haste to keep up with the harvest (so the seeds still remain in the canned tomatoes).

The pressure cooker has a steamer insert that allows for the filtering-off of the seeds allowing for the tomato "sauce" to drizzle through.




2.) Another purpose for the canner is of course for canning.




3.) And now it also distills the water for the batteries! One crappy device does it all.
