What Am I Trying to Build?

My area of focus is water conservation and repurposing. I’m trying to build a home water system in which water from your sewage pipe can be run through a water wheel to generate electricity for your house and can then be run through a reverse osmosis system to generate clean water for your taps and sinks. The water wasted from the reverse osmosis system can then be transported to plants in the backyard with a drip irrigation system.
