It is included in this research the distiller in the form of four-sided pyramid, where the structure allows a better use of solar radiation during the day, combined with studies on the inclination of the faces and the water depth in the evaporation pan to improve the production of distillate.
Precipitation and evaporation were measured with a standard rain gauge and a class A evaporation pan, respectively, that were installed near the ponds.
The evaporation data worksheet, [E.sub.pan], measures the evaporation data from the evaporation pan. In order to determine reference operation E[T.sub.o], one has to multiply the data from the evaporation pan with pan coefficient that can be chosen from 1 to 2.1, with the interval of 0.1 [4].
