Off-Grid Cabin: DIY Rainwater Collection

470 views

Description


The Off-grid cabin is getting running water! We are too far from utilities to get water from the grid, and drilling a well in this area could cost upwards of $10K so we opted for rainwater collection. With an annual average of 4,000 gallons of water, we calculate that with a 1,100 gallon holding tank we will be able to sustain ourselves year round.

Our holding tank was under $800. The pipes, valves, and fittings were under $30. Our next step is to hook the tank up to spin-on mesh filters and a water pump so we can connect to our faucet and hot water tank, as well as install sub-surface drain pipes to divert overflow from the cabin.
