The Waterpod will be collecting rainwater from a few of the impermeable roof areas. The calculations for collection are on this spreadsheet. There are three tabs feeding the results:

  • Tab:Collection Calcs - Calculates the monthly availability of the rainwater.
  • Tab:Collections Dimensions - Calculates the available rainwater collection area based upon the planned structures.
  • Tab:Regional Climate Data - Show monthly rainfall from historical averages. Could be made more current.

Regional Climate Data[edit | edit source]

The historical 1971 - 2000 Rainfall Normals for Central Park, New York[1] are:

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun
3.42 3.27 4.08 4.2 4.42 3.67
Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
4.35 4.01 3.89 3.56 4.47 3.91

Basic Calculation[edit | edit source]


(in some cases the efficiency of the system is assumed to be 100% and therefore equal to 1, having no effect on the rest of the equation.)

Conclusion[edit | edit source]

Wait until the spreadsheet is finalized before posting the final conclusions here.
