Posting it in general info, because it may come handy for other people later on.
So as you know, we have relocated to the Eastern Cape. It is a winter rainfall region.
However, we do get clouds coming over and enveloping us in fog during the year, it is not consistent, but it do happen.
Cloudfisher – Wasserstiftung have got a couple of projects running all over the world, with a good success rate.
We are thinking of going it the DIY route, by procuring a roll of very fine shadow netting, something like this (but very fine) :
Then spread it out on a rectangular frame and put it upright like this (and anchor it properly as well) :
We can increase the density of the shadow netting by having more than two layers, but allow the fog/cloud to still move through, but trapping moisture and have the water drip down to a trough, leading to a tank for collection.
I had a look, there’s also some new MOF materials out there that can harvest water, but apparently it is not commercialized yet. So the above method is the one we’ll have to use.
