    Default Water from the Air

    Interesting concept, I wonder how they are dealing with bacterial growth in the collected water

    Condensation collection has to be chlorinated to kill bacteria growth.

    37 liters sounds like a rather large embellishment. I imagine it would work well in the right climate.

    I don't think bacterial growth will be problem without light. We use black poly tanks to collect and store water and don't have significant "greening".

    I've seen them somewhere and interested in trying them out. A for sure probability for a BOB.

    The fontus is a scam, several individuals have tried replicating their claims. It is just won't work.
