Water for Off Grid Living

Have you ever thought about living completely off-grid with no reliance on public utilities?

Since Covid-19 more people have had a rethink about their lifestyles. Some people have made small changes with more of a work/life balance, whilst some have relocated out of city centres to more remote areas with outside space, even growing their own vegetables and becoming more self-sufficient.

Working from home has also become a new normal for some, allowing them to ditch the car as they stay closer to home. Then there are others who have completely upped sticks and embraced the full off grid life. It is not to be underestimated and comes with many challenges. It is certainly not for the feint hearted and can be quite costly to get set up. Therefore, it is important to make some considered purchases in the beginning. By doing this, you could in the long run save thousands of pounds and happily live a more simple, less complicated sustainable life.

Off Grid Eco homes these days can rival any property, but to make sure they are completely self-sufficient, you need to cover the basics: Water, Food and Shelter.

Harvesting rainwater

 

One of the most important decisions you will need to make is about water.

With Aegina you can make that choice a simple one.

Water after all is the most important factor to consider as you need it for everything. Drinking, cooking, washing, cleaning and to water gardens.

Rainwater is not as pure as you think. So harvested rainwater after it falls from the sky into your storage containers, would still need treating. Especially if it has run off another surface like a rooftop before filling up your container.

Rainwater may travel across many different surfaces before reaching your container. This surface water may have picked up germs from animal faecal matter and trace chemicals from agriculture or industry, which can then remain in the water. In addition to this, pollutants in the air from traffic, farming and factories contribute to the chemicals that can dissolve into water as it is falling. In more densely populated areas, the levels of pollution are likely to be more severe.

Bacteria in stored water?

 

After the water is collected, you will need to consider how long your water is stored for so it doesn’t turn into a breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria.

This is where Aegina can help.

Aegina is a compact, low maintenance, low powered unit that can be run off a battery which is installed at point of use. It won’t matter how long your water has been stored for as Aegina will treat the water as you use it.

The intelligent UV LED technology doses the water with the optimal amount of UV light, this then affects the wall of the pathogen’s cells causing irreversible damage of which the cells cannot recover from. They are rendered ineffective, and the water is safe for consumption. Aegina sterilises your drinking water to the NSF 55 specification to 99.99% purity.

Therefore, for any off grid living whether that be a Boat, Canal Boat, RV or on a remote mountainside, if you are you are harvesting your rainwater or collecting it from where the source is unknown, Aegina can ensure that you will always have safe drinking water to a Class A standard at the turn of a tap.

 

Off grid water storage tanks

“Having Aegina on board our campervan gave us total peace of mind whilst travelling in the Balkans. Clean drinking water is an absolute must, and it made such a difference to our vanlife experience not having to think about our water source. The water flow rate was great and the unit was super easy to install, we really can’t fault it.”
