Water conservation in Puna, Hawaii
At our house we collect water from our gutters into two water tanks. We do this because in our subdivision we don't have county water. This may sound strange to most people in the mainland U.S., but actually this is done in other parts of the world too.
I don't consider it a bad thing, because when other people are paying a water bill I am not. I also like the fact that we are not dependent on a water company. When it is raining I feel free to take really long hot showers.
We have 3 filters and we also treat our own water. I used to use chlorine, but now I use food grade hydrogen peroxide.
