Im looking up unusual places people get their drinkable water from. The most out there is rainwater. Anyone hear of others?

I beleive in the Atacama desert they set up some sort of netting to capture what little water there is in the atmosphere.  The water condenses on the netting, then trickles down into a trough on the bottom of the net that collects the water.



Depends on how reliable of a source we're talkin' =p or if it has to be the majority of a person's intake or not. Does something like wringing out cacti for water in the desert for survival, count? Maybe there are people who do that regularly in the world, but I can't say I know =o



You mean like putting a tap into a cactus?

Drinking holy water in Lourdes is pretty unusual

Serving about 5 million people a season nowadays.

I was there when I was 15 or so, almost 30 years ago. I'm not religious but the place did leave a big impression. I see they have added a lot of extra taps.

It may have just been a concept for a future solution, but have heard that in some skyscrapers, they similarly use really finely meshed nets to literally catch clouds and use that as drinkable water, because it is difficult to pump the water that high from the bottom.



I drink sewer water to strengthen my body. If my immune system can fight off the filth of humanity it might just be able to fight off anything.

I get mine from the supermarket. They sell 9l for 1,14€



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

All the water I drink comes out of my toilet



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
