Ships Water Recycling

Water is required by most species. Although in theory it could be generated from raw materials using a replicator this seems like a terrible waste of energy. Therefore most ships are equipped with water storage tanks.

The water usage can be set for the entire crew by assigning a water ration amount.

Each tank has its own water reclamation system which can reclaim water from waste disposal.

Water is very heavy, therefore this will have to be taken into account for the mass of the ship while calculating acceleration/deceleration.  

Power Requirements

The reclamation units each use 0.01 MW of power for each liter being processed (typically 0.02MW when processing 120 litres per hour).
