Plastic or tarp hung up and made funnel shaped a bit. In the mornings, the dew will condensate on the liner and drip down into a bucket. I think I saw that on some zombie movie. I might test it to see if it works.
1) Drink your urine... yes its nasty but will save your life.

a makeshift water filter, is to take a pair of trousers, jeans
put one leg inside the other,
tie the bottoms of the legs
so that you are making a 'double lined bag'
pour water in, and what comes out is filtered to some extent
in an emergency it makes rough water a bit more drinkable if you dont have access to boiling / filtering equipment

Your hot water tank is also full of water. Find natural springs in your local area. I know where mine are and use them frequently for drinking water and stocking up. I also read somewhere that adding bleach to your water is helpful in killing bacteria etc. It was a very small amount, like a teaspoon for 10 gallons or something. I suggest you google it if you are interested.

The distillation method, in an emergency, still works well. Take two clear plastic containers of equal size. Half fill one with your contaminated water. Tape the necks together, ensuring that the contaminated water remains in its allocated conrainer. place the set up on the ground, in direct sunlight, at a slight angle, the contaminated container lowermost. Cover the empty container with something to shield it from the sun and wait.
Come back after a day of so. Seperate the two containers, ensuring that there is not cross contamination. The once empty container will now contain fresh drinking water.
This method also works to recycle urine. Trust me. It works.
