Each unit then passes the air, and water, through a series of specially patented extraction chambers that have a range of features to further force water condensation. Any and all liquid water is then filtered for potential contaminants (like pathogens, pollen, etc) and then collected in a special storage tank ready for tapping.
The device works best in areas with high humidity, like foggy areas or coastlines, and, depending on the size of the unit, it is capable of producing between 200 and 1,900 gallons (900 and 8,600 liters) of water a day.
Sadly, these devices are not cheap and cost anywhere between $30,000 and $200,00. depending on their capacity. But that is just the start of a potential owner’s financial outlay.
The unit also consumes a lot of power. However, if paired with a clean energy source such as a solar panel array, the running, and carbon, costs for the machine can be made more reasonable.
