Fresh water supplies are diminishing and becoming more expensive in many areas of the country. In such a situation, conserving and purifying water has become more important than ever. All the available solutions for conserving and reusing water have not been able to find their application at every doorstep due to various factors. We have introduced a new idea that can be easily integrated into the present water distribution system of domestic buildings and automatically conserves water without human supervision by forming a closed loop feedback system. The system automatically reuses grey water expelled from kitchen and bathroom by filtering, storing and then supplying it to desired location as per requirement. Apart from this the system automatically harvests rainwater which will be filtered, stored and used for primary use by the residents of the domestic buildings. Since the whole system is automatically operated, hence it was also a challenge to select automation components in such a way that it reduces the installation cost of the system yet increases overall efficiency in conserving water. The water reusing and supplying system has been designed in such a manner that it can easily fit into the present plumbing system of a conventional domestic building with minimum alteration. The problem of removing odour from water for easy storage and longer use has been achieved by the simple use of bleach powder from which the chlorine removes odour and the chlorine from the bleach will vaporize in a couple of days.
