Need water? Use our humidity

It may seem hard to believe, but a local man is turning humidity into drinking water. Dan Shields does this with what he calls the H20 Liquid Air Device. It's basically a dehumidifying machine. Two gauges sit on top of it. One is a thermometer, the other a hydrometer. There is a certified graph on the back. It shows that at 57% humidity, the machine can produce about six gallons of water in 24 hours. The device even treats and filters the water.

"Very clean water without any chlorine and minerals," Shields told us. "It's better than any water that you could probably buy, cause it's coming out of the air instead of through pipes."

Shields hopes the product he helped design will put an end to plastic water bottles. He believes they create too much waste.
