As a developing country, Indonesia also suffer water scarcity in term both quantity and quality. The water scarcity drive to find another water resources that is cheap and easy to obtain. One of the water resources that can be used is rainwater by applying the rainwater harvesting system. Collected rainwatercan be used to replace and reduces the use of groundwater or tap water. Rainwater Harvesting System performance is strongly influenced by rainfall, water demand, and the storage tank capacity. The main objective of this study is to find the correlation between rainfall, water demand, and the storage tank capacity. Correlation is expressed by a non-dimensional parameter which is represented by the curves and equations based on tank capacity*…show more content…*

The rainwater quality is considered met the standard of clean water so there is no additional treatment required.The algorithm in the RWH system is described in Figure 4

3.1 RWH System Performance

The initial stage is to design a system that will be used to see the potential of rainwater and water needs that exist in any time frame. The model is used to simulate the flux of water in the storage tank for a period of 24 hours (daily). The size of the storage tank is adjusted to the volume of rainwater to be accommodated which will be simulated throughout the observation period (data length).

RWH system performance can be represent by the indicator of the reliability and efficiency of the tank which can be expressed in units of time or volume (Fewkes and Butler, 1999a). In this study, the system performance is expressed in 2 non-dimensional parameters, namely in volume units where the volume of rain water that can meet the water needs (volumetric reliability, VR) and in time units (TR) where the number of days that the water needs are met with RWH system

V_R= (∑_(t=1)^T▒Y_t )/(∑_(t=1)^T▒D_t ) x 100 (7) (8)

After determining the significant parameters affecting RWH system that is water demand (demand), rainfall, storage tank capacity and wide catchment area, some relationship analysis between parameters is done by testing some equations. From several equations that have been analyzed, it is concluded that the most appropriate non-dimensional parameter relationship to represent the performance of the system is if the demand is divided by the area of catchment area and rainfall. The relationship is expressed

Among two methods the density bottle gives more accurate measurement of the volume, resulting in more accurate determination of density. One of disadvantages of hydrometer is that hydrometer has Operator dependent readings, therefore has limited accuracy. Morever, for measuring the density using hydrometer large sample volume is required.

The general procedure involves filling an evaporation pan with water up to a defined mark. The water lost is estimated by determining the volume of water required to fill the pan up to the defined mark on a daily basis. An allowance has to be made for rainfall.

In this study, the Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation (FCE) method was used to objectively rank the overall degree of hydrologic alteration evaluated either by the IHA method or by the eco-statistical method. Details of this application will be discussed in a subsequent paper. In this study, the FCE method was used to calculate fuzzy vectors from the RVA of each IHA parameter, the indices of seasonal eco-surplus and eco-deficit, and from the seasonal indices showing only eco-surplus. A higher value of the fuzzy vector represents greater overall hydrological

Hardness is a chemical property of water that evaluates the concentration of dissolved divalent cations such as Ca and Mg, which happen to be the two ions that are tested for in the experiment. Hardness can be measured in multiple ways such as molarity (M) or parts per million (ppm). Since all natural waters contain ion concentrations of dissolved minerals, it is important to known the hardness value because hard water can cause scale formation in industrial

It has been determined by various researchers and investigators to be less than unity and slightly increases with increasing solution concentration if the solute is not known or it is complex, we have to use mass concentration instead of molar concentration. For convenience: this model assumed to be at a constant temperature and is incorporated with the other constant Y which simplifies osmotic pressure to solute concentration coefficient. The value of Y was assumed t-o be constant over the operating range of the solute concentration. In corporation of osmotic pressure equation into the expression for the solute flux Eq.
