Spray Diagram for Raw Data
Will it cause any disruptions to nearby residences?
The spot under the tap of our system
Stagnant water surrounding the system
In the tank
Potential dangers in our system
Water might splash on the walk way, People might fall down due to the slippery conditions.
Our system is placed far from the walkway.
Toppling of our system
The height of our tank cannot be too high
Used 200 litres tank instead of 600 litres
People might knock into the system
Red White tape to deter people from going close to the system
the wooden pallet is not waterproof it might break due to corrosion.
Reinforced it by putting bricks in between the wooden pallet.

Does it obstruct walkway or fire evacuation route
Problems and limitations
Water meter clog
As a result water will not pass through water meter and into the tank

Does modifications need to be made to RVRC compound?
Does our raw data fit into our statement?
Collaboration with the RVRC Gardening Club to make use of the rainwater collected. Collected rainwater is dispensed through the outlet into a watering tank to be used
Little modifications were made to the RVRC compounds, where we collect water from the edge of the roof (gutter located at the corner)
More rainwater is collected than previously expected.
This shows that rainwater harvesting can be collected in large quantities for many non-potable purposes (eg. gardening)
To reduce piped water usage and supplement existing water supplies
Design of our system
200 Liter Tank is suitable for the purposes we are using the tank for
Reduce costs and implement sustainability
We reused an old barrel to make a funnel
location of system: maximises the collection of water
