The Isla Urbana Chaac Kit is composed of 8 different parts. Rainwater collected from the gutter attached to the roof of the structure is collected into a pipe system where it first passes through a first flush separator to collect dirty water and debris. After this, water passes through a leaf filter for large debris and enters into the on-site storage tank where its momentum is reduced through a turbulence reducer. Next, a chlorine doser and float switch disinfect the water while notifying the user when the tank reaches a certain level. Then, a manual hand pump pushes the water from the tank into a small sediment filter and finally a passive water purification tank where the water is then ready to drink.
Provided by Isla Urbana for purchases of systems in quantities greater than five.
Replaceable components include the chlorine system and the micro-filtration filters.
