water & energy management

why don’t we have underground water storage tanks for rainwater? or ‘clean’ wastewater?

1. it’s FREE
2. for fires it might be useful
3. it ‘collects’ energy – hot or cold

with a heat pump you could draw lots of energy from it, or ‘dump’ heat if you need to (eg from airconditioning)

also think about all the waste water from a hot shower or a bath! besides you could reuse the water for the toilet flush – i know it’s done already. My idea is that you ‘tell’ your wastewater system how dirty your water is – eg it’s fairly clean from the rinse cycle of your dishwasher! Or just let the system analyze the waste and decide!

All the systems in your house need to ‘talk’ to each other to use water and electricity more efficiently.
