Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
Off to Guatemala
by RainSaucers Inc. on June 10th, 2011

Last week our Summer Contractor landed in Guatemala and right away started implementing our Gautemala field trial. After much discussion about how to have the most impact, we decided to implement RainSaucers on a pair of 5 gallon buckets (prototype pictured here). The idea is that each time it rains the customer brings the unit inside for immediate consumption then swaps in a second 5 gallon bucket in the meantime. This not only keeps the price low but keeps the water fresh. The constant consumption and rotation can potentially turn 10 gallons of storage into 100's of gallons depending on how much it rains, the frequency, and the time in between rains.

The Gautemala RainSaucer is the same as the U.S. one with the exception of additional filration to improve the drinking experience. We created an additional filter chamber within the adapter assembly into which we place additional screening and a sediment filter.
