Water is a scarce resource. The lack of clean water is already a problem for some populations, and, in the near future, it will become a major problem for many more populations. “Provide access to clean water” is one of the National Academy of Engineering’s 14 Grand Challenge that must be solved to fulfill a global vision of “continuation of life on planet, making our world more sustainable, safe, healthy, and joyful.” One estimate of household water usage is 80-100 gallons per person per day. Nearly ¾ of this water usage results in greywater from washing and other general indoor uses. There are examples of plant-based systems that filter water through different media. Even without taking such system to the level that they create potable water, such systems could substantially cut household water usage and also collect rain water. It is believed that an attractive system that can be easily retrofitted to existing plumbing has commercial value.
