KittenIsAGeek Posted May 26, 2017 Share Posted May 26, 2017 I'm trying to figure out what to do with all my water. First, the clean water: I have tapped one geyser which is continually pumping water into a pool. The pool feeds two electrolysis devices that are running nearly continually to provide oxygen for 13 dupes. Though lately they've been stopping due to gas backup, which means I need more dupes. I'm also feeding into 8 hydroponic farms, 5 air scrubbers, and 11 algae terrariums, 5 showers, and 7 toilets. So, I'm not running out of clean water, nor am I overflowing. Its balanced. Second, the polluted water: This is where I'm running into troubles. Currently I've tapped two natural gas geysers that are currently providing fuel for 9 generators. Strangely, I can't get ahead of the power drain, but that's a topic for another post. Anyway, the 9 generators create 607.5g/s of polluted water. This is added to by the outputs from the oxygen scrubbers, toilets, and showers. Additionally, to help cut down on sublimation, I've crunched all my slime through distillers. I ran out of sand about 100 cycles ago, so at the moment the only way I have to get rid of polluted water is hydroponic farm tiles growing mealwood or pincha pepperplants. This is not nearly enough. Even if I could purify the water, it would simply make me overflow with clean water instead of polluted. I still have plenty of map space left, but if I continue to scale up, I'm going to run out of places to put water. Does anyone have any suggestions? TL;DR: At 340 cycles, running into a surplus of water. Don't know how to get rid of it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
