Your knowledge sharing about rainwater storage and filtration is amazing. This summer rains gave enough water in most of my projects to be dependent completely on rain water for all their daily needs.
Data from old projects with average family size of 5-6 people and 8k liter rainwater sump brought down the BWSSB water consumption down by half during rainy seasons and summer by 1/4th .

Thank you so much for your complements. I am just sharing my little knowledge on the subject and my personal experience gained out of my experimenting in the nature’s lab.
It is indeed gratifying to know that you are an ardent promoter of rainwater harvesting in your projects and the residents are richly reaping the benefits.
Initially at the time of construction of my house, everyone discouraged my thought of harvesting rainwater for storage and was even laughed upon. It was this attitude that made me to put in my heart and soul to showcase its success.
People always prefer BWSSB water supply as water is supplied at a highly subsidized cost and made available at the turn of the tap. Rooftop rainwater is still considered as contaminated water.
Apartments are ready to buy tanker water throughout the year to meet their requirements, but rainwater harvesting is not considered. Majority of the apartment owners are completely against harvesting rainwater for storage despite their complete dependency on tanker water.
Probably we are waiting for a catastrophe.
