DIY Home Water Filtration System: Rainwater Harvesting with a Biological Sand Filter and Maintenance

DIY Water Systems

Our off grid home water filtration system is built on-site with 0.35mm filter sand and IBC totes. This advanced DIY rainwater harvesting system design is gravity fed and a resilient way to establish water security in uncertain times. Maintenance is super easy and very infrequent. We use a series of three rainwater harvesting tanks made from IBC totes as the rainwater collection tank, with a biosand slow sand filter tank design and 10,000 gallon underground rainwater cistern.
