This project deals particularly with figuring out a way to take rainwater that comes down gutters and recycle it into reusable water for domestic purposes such as, doing laundry or flushing the toilet. The process includes learning and researching what kind of chemicals are in rainwater, but also where it ends up if it is not being recycled. Also, being able to understand the amount of precipitation that falls throughout the year, and which month has the highest precipitation is important in determining how large of a storage tank you would need for storing the rainwater.
