Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
AC you see, is a water machine
by RainSaucers Inc. on July 28th, 2011

Growing up as a kid in the summer in sweltering NYC, I always used to get confused walking alongside apartment buildings. I mistakenly thought it was raining when it wasn't because of all the AC condensation falling on passersby.

Lately I've started thinking more about that wasted water and wondering whether it can be recycled. So far the few times that I've put my AC on this year (very mild heat this year in Northern California) I've been able to capture the condensation coming out our system with a 1 gallon bowl (which easily fills up) and use it on some of my plants. Earlier this year I was introduced to a soaker hose called catchadrip. which automatically does this for you.

I figure that that newer buildings must have some kind of condensate recovery system. But what about condensation coming our of apartments, office buildings, and hotels where each room has its own AC? I plan on doing further research to see if a RainSaucer can be used for this.
