Water is pulled into the condenser via a electric fan. which gathers the water on the fins, small fridge,, then it gos to the 5 gallon bucket that is inside the 30 gallon drum. The 5 gallon bucket has two Berky filters that remove most of the contaminants. The water is then pumped thru a line to a spicket. There are many ways to filter water, it depends the area you live in to know which ones are the best to use, it is best to consult a professional to know which filtration to use for your area.
Cost of all the parts between $400. and $5oo. This unit was made to operate outside.

Hi Power Design, of course the amount of humidity in the air varies we have usually 50 to 60 % because we are near the ocean so we get the on shore clouds and fog ect. it is necessary to have more that 30% humidity for the unit to be useful.
60% will yeald 5 gallons of h2o per 8 hr. day.In the house the humidity is 10% higher but we like the humidity so better to have the unit out side for us. I have more pictures of the build if any body is interested. :O)
this is a float switch turns off the unit when the tank is full
