    Nice!

    Well done. I would think you would not want inside operation in most of CA given the already dry air, no?

    Though in humid climates it would serve a dual purpose of generating water AND moderating inside air.

    What is the quality/purity of the water yield?

    And as point of interest what do you pay for residential water if you don't mind my asking.

    Hi Shopstorm,

    You must remember I live near the coast where water in the air is higher then the desert areas. What is the quality/purity of the water yield?

    If you're so inclined you might look a the effects of relative humidity and ambient temperature on your device. At higher humidity levels it will make more than at lower of course. I would be very interested to know how the capture rate falls off at low humidity levels. Those of us in arid areas could then decide on building one.

    Hi Captainleeward,

    Great post on the AWG. I would be very interested in all the details and pictures, as I am planning on building one of my own.

    Thanks...Jeff
