When I started distilling with the T500 one of the things that appealed to me was the water economy. Where I live we do pay for water but aside from that It's always good to be kind to the environment. I was keen to get a barrel or drum to hold 150 or 200 odd litres of water and a fish pond pump to feed it through the still condensors. That way I could use the same water over and over again. No doubt it will heat up somewhat during the process but how much I wonder?
Does anyone use a system like this with a StillDragon?
We are about to build a new house and I was wondering if I could bury a huge plastic drum full of water beside the garage foundations and have it plumbed in so it was out of the way. Any thoughts? Might need a grunty pump to lift the water up and into the garage where I'd be distilling and the feed hose would need to be low in the tank but there must be a way to do it. If it was big enough it may not even heat up too much during the course of a run. I guess you'd need to increase the pumps flow as it did warm.
