SDV.03 --- HYDROPHILIAC is a future niche-filler. It distills the fountain-garden combination from the estate to a kind of spray-gun unit that provides its owner with the opportunity to irrigate dry and unusable ground for gardening, agriculture, and animal grazing. Its catchment basin store 3,020 gallons of water for use through its six-nozzle output array that connects two hygenic water supplies to the interior, two irrigation guns, and two optional-use potable sources. The HYDROPHILIAC exists in anticipation of forecasted water shortages, the immanent subsequent privatization of the water supply, and the need for energy independence. Its water-catchment basin, water-filtration/management technologies, and photovoltaic arrays are engineered to sustain.
