Experiences in designing rainwater harvesting system

I have following query:


Design of a typical roof water rain harvesting system, consisting of:

  • in-line filters for silt removal
  • down-take system: design considerations
  • cheap, local skill suited, storage tank (materials, design, typical costs)
  • storage tank sizing parameters
  • water withdrawal means (e.g., hand pump?)
  • water disinfection
  • water quality testing kits (cheap, local use by school children or teachers)

 I hope members would share experiences.
