The property was especially designed to conserve and recycle water. Water for the house is from the borehole and there is a dedicated cisterna. A second cisterna is for the automated irrigation, and is fed by waste water from the house plus a hidden drainage system which collects rainwater from the roof and grounds. There is a double pump system so if one is under maintenance the other can be switched over, so you never have to worry about the water supply to the house.
