  3. Free fresh water

    Nature makes fresh water by evaporating sea water, over a huge area. Even I is self lines into pure water vapour. But we can improve on this system.

    If we fire up just one metre of vacuum over water, it boils off into fresh water vapour. Losing all salts, heavy metals, or contaminants plus bacteria life forms! We are left just with pure H₂O.

    We then pump the water vapour to a high reservoir or holding tank. It is 1000 times easier to pump water vapour and liquid water. So he can use a solar driven vacuum pump, or a small weaned turbine. Backed up by batteries all the mains.
