November, 2012. Makanda, IL, Residential potable system. Designed and installed by Rainwater Harvesting Supply Company, LLC.
Specifications: 2,000 gallon in-ground storage tank; submersible demand pump; filtration and U.V light sanitization system.
Currently, the owner has the storage tank filled with potable water trucked into the property. The site is in a remote part of Illinois with a very small residence with limited roof collection capacity. The water from the tank is piped into the home where it is processed through sediment filtration and finally U.V Light to provide potable water. Future plans include building a dedicated catchment surface and converting to rain water as the primary supply.
