Zero Water Building-Reuse and Recycling of Water

Water carries immense significance. It is not only meant for physical cleanliness but for spiritual well-being as well.
It signifies purity and fertility. Symbolically, it is viewed as the source of life itself, a symbol of change and is often present at turning points in a story. Likewise, water can also represent death (such as dark murky waters). Water categorized into fresh water and bad/polluted water. Fresh water can represent good health, and bad water symbolizes bad health. The sound of running water can cause you to slow your breathing subconsciously, thereby lowering your heart rate and blood pressure, ie why we all love to have a running water feature at our home and working spaces.However in recent times, we also know that this very essential resource is facing considerable challenge in meeting the demands of flora and fauna. Day by Day our water is getting filthier with industrial waste, polluted with untreated sewage and garbage. Even in Municipal Supplied areas, quality of water been supplied is horrible. To make the matter worst whatever bare minimum quantity is supplied, even that is not guaranteed.In this scenario even going green is not a solution. By merely installing shower head with lesser flow rate, we are looking at short term solution. The right approach in the current scenario can only be “Self Sustainable”.

H2zerO H2Zero Logo is a step towards Self Sustainablity. It means a building which doesn’t imports even a drop of water from outside, neither discharge a drop outside. For residential usage most of our water consumption goes for non potable application such as laundry, washing, mopping cleaning etc. So the idea is to recycle and treat the waste water from Potable application such as bathing and use it in non potable application. By this method alone we would be in a position to reduce our fresh water consumption by almost 50 – 75%.
