water wall / Use of water resources

water wall
water wall

his green house uses recycled PET bottles to store water in the walls. Because of the low thermal conductivity of water. The water is cold in the morning, but it feels warm at night. Water absorbs heat when there is sun, and it dissipates heat at night. Using this characteristic of water, the house has the function of automatically adjusting the temperature.
Not only that, just like the water tower above the house, the water stored in the wall can also be used. Like flushing the toilet or watering flowers.If you add water-purifying substances to the PET bottle, you can directly filter the rainwater and drink it directly.
