    I'm posting this on the public side of the forum so more people may read it:

    Consumer Reports: Some bottled water brands have unsafe arsenic levels

    https://www.foodsafetynews.com/2019...tled-water-brands-have-unsafe-arsenic-levels/

    If you have bottle water in your food preps, do check against this list of bottlers and re-sellers.

    I would advise caution, even if you Don't have these brands. Not all bottled water was tested so there may be others with a similar problem...

    I really to get to work on a DIY atmospheric water collector.

    Just my opinion.

    That is one of the methods. I have a 3D print file to print a test set of devices to do the same thing. As soon as I get a 3D printer I am going to try them out. They would be better in glazed ceramic, but all in good time.

    There are a couple more methods, including ones that require refrigerant and power, one that just needs a bit of power, and then versions of each of those that I think I can make to run without any external power.

    Just my opinion.

    I've seen some very tall (6 meter), conical structures made from fabric. They are being described for use in third world countries. I didn't find the link, but when I do, I'll post it here.

    Thank you, twp. I do not remember having seen that configuration.

    Just my opinion.
