Introduction: Solar Water Distillation Using Rain Water

The drawing explains, hard to add much more...

Here I ramble about it:

Solar Powered Distillation

I go to Africa a lot, so keep trying to figure out how to make life simpler for the 1.5 billion people living off the grid, plus the 3-4 billion who are on the grid, but hate to pay for drinking water.

I do not have one, but when I return to Togo, West Africa, if you click on the link I included above, "Solar Powered Distillation," you will see 3 videos at bottom by other people who make the distiller part. The 55 gallon barrels under rain spouts are everywhere in Togo, West Africa, adding the solar distiller on the end will be easy, and the whole group house I live in for 6 dollars PER MONTH will be happy to have free drinking water.
