2% of the earth’s water is fresh, and as it is surface water much of it can be contaminated. In our practice we always think about a practical alternative source; the atmosphere. It supplies us with ample naturally distilled water, that when collected needs only minor filtering. It is very inexpensive and healthy, why? Because it is rainwater.  Roofs are designed to gather it, Water leaders to filter it, under floors cisterns to store it. All of the fore mentioned building components are standard for all buildings, all we do is shape them differently.
