This rainwater tank is one of the safest and most economical ways to collect and use rainwater. Most regions of Sri Lanka have a tropical monsoon climate, divided into rainy and dry seasons. Even the driest areas have an annual rainfall of at least 600 mm, making it easy to collect rainwater. However, it is a challenge to prevent insects from entering the tank and laying larvae in the stagnant water, thus leading to disease and contamination. This design solves that problem – simply and elegantly.

Thank you so much to all of the people who helped me. I will constantly think about what it means to be a good designer.
