What Is Rainwater Harvesting
What is rainwater harvesting and why would you want it?
It can be as easy as a water butt on your guttering down pipe, or a giant water tank buried in your garden, it collects the rainwater from your roof and you can use it to water your garden or wash your vehicle, clean your driveway or top up your pond. Almost any outside use. With some extra plumbing you can use the water in your washing machine and for flushing your toilet.
Why would you want it? It can reduce your water bill if you're on a meter. You can beat the hosepipe ban, it's better than tap water for your garden plants, your homegrown veg and your lawn. You will be helping to save water, reducing surface water run off, and you'll feel good about it too. It's free water, soft, has no lime scale and it falls from the sky. Why would you not want to use it?
There are two main types of system...
These pump rain water directly to where it is used, like a toilet or outside tap.
These pump rain water to a tank in the loft and it's then fed by gravity to where its needed.
Your Rainwater Harvesting system can be almost anywhere on your property, under your drive or garden, front or back. It can be fully automatic all bar occasional filter cleaning, or if you like you can take a proactive roll and monitor water levels and useage.
