I'm currently living off-grid in SF and we are paying about $0.40/gal for drinking water, with an impending plan to pay $0.12/gal for non-potable fresh water (for showers, etc). Cost savings are more relevant to us than most shower owners.

In a situation like that I can see the water purifying and recirculation.
I was assuming it was just for Burning Man where it makes no sense unless, like Mulch, you're a rocket surgeon doing it for the engineering challenge and not for financial or logistical practicality.
If cost and logistic practicality aren't the bigger concerns, well... hell thats Burning Man.

Could you utilize cheaper, non-potable water sources? Your shower setup will already filtering and recycling water. It'll spoil your water containers of course.

@ $.12/gal isn't the cost of your system costing more then what potable water would? I understand that over time the cost is reduced but it will need maintenance & repairs.

It's an interesting experiment but I can't imaging an effective & safe system being inexpensive.
In your wildest dreams you can not imagine the marvelous SURPRISES that await YOU.
