Okay, we've got shelter downish. We've even got half reliable food. But water? If the weather's always like this, we're okay, but what if this is the rainy season?

We never had to stop to fill up on water when we were travelling. Now maybe we were managing to stretch the potable water farther than usual because we were way below regular crewing levels. But most ships have water recyclers. And we know there was potable water in Medical.

I know how the recyclers worked on my ship, but of course Tranquility is different. So I figure any set of techie eyes I can get will help. Who wants to take a look at plumbing and see if we can figure out where the water was processed? Maybe there'll be something we can reach that'll help with the river.

it's possible to collect water from the plants and ground. all you really need to extract it are plastic bags, cups, some plastic wrap and a few other things that aren't too hard to find.

should at least keep us going until you can figure out the recyclers. don't know much about those.

there's an alien and a woman who can make ice around here. the alien is pretty hard to miss.
circumitus: Otherwise you'd be a dad by now. (thank god you're gay)

[personal profile] circumitus 2015-11-29 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
yes that is always a possibility too.

perhaps there's something that can be salvaged from the medbay, such as refrigeration units for storage.
circumitus: Because you're marine grade... You rascal. (you need 400 proof or marine proof)

not a bad idea, though finding the material that won't just corrode when coming in contact with the water may be trickier.
circumitus: What if cement was really a rainbow color they just secretly paint it grey so as not to distract drivers? (what if...)

you never know. but if it can withstand the acid then it's worth a shot. willing to try anything at this point.
circumitus: that's because you have standards... and i have a thing for guys that give me free drugs. (my dad brought home flowers)

[personal profile] circumitus 2015-12-01 07:44 am (UTC)(link)
worth a shot, if you believe it'll work. don't think we're short on the stuff.
circumitus: even drones can fly away.... the queen is their slave... (chill out big head)

yes, it's certainly one small thing to be thankful for.

[personal profile] circumitus 2015-12-07 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
agreed. looks like it's only a matter of time before the ship takes the plunge off that cliff.

I might be able to help with that.

Has anyone considered digging a well?

Yes. I'll see what equipment the science station might have to that effect - but of course our range is limited.

If you and Eleanor are going to the ship, I suggest looking there as well.

I'm glad she has someone here.

I might know more than I would like to admit about water recycling and reclamation systems.

That sounds fine. Where would I need to go?

And thank you.

[personal profile] notyourutopian 2015-12-01 04:00 am (UTC)(link)

Let me know when you want to go, then. It doesn't sound like something to do alone.
