Comparison of the conventional rainwater harvesting system and the systematically monitored RFD system

Conventional rainwater harvesting systemSystematically monitored RFD system
The system is neglected after installation. Systematic weekly and quarterly monitoring is performed. 
The system is operated based on central precipitation data. On-site manual precipitation data are obtained. 
Water depletes due to overuse; users should wait for the next rainfall. Water supply is constant through a water usage alarm system. 
The water quality test is perfunctory. Urgent issues can be resolved by regular monitoring. 
Monitoring data are unreliable. Open access to the monitoring data promotes managerial ownership of the system.
