Mandating water efficiency
Drip irrigation, also referred to as “micro-irrigation”, delivers water at low pressure directly at the root zone of the plant through flexible tubing and drip emitters.
There are two types of composting toilets: self-contained and split units – both designed to prevent fixture odors.
The recirculating water carries dissolved solids, which need to be removed because they can cause mineral buildup inside the system.
Blowdown can be minimized through proper water management of the system via chemical treatment and filtration for example.
See Condensate capture refers to harvesting condensed water on air handling units to be reused in other applications.
As cool air passes through air handling units, water condensate can form from humid outside air (similar to water droplets forming on the outside of a cold glass of water on a warm, humid day).
