Rainwater Harvesting is not a new concept; however, over the last century, its use has diminished with the availability of a clean, inexpensive and reliable water source through the mains supply.
More recently, Particularly in summer months, water demand has started to exceed supply, and localised flooding has become a major issue in many parts of the UK Industry experts are now recognising the important role that Rainwater Harvesting (also known as rainwater recycling, and grey water recycling) has to play in alleviating both these problems.
With strategic water planners looking to reduce the amount of water consumption per head going forward. Solutions such as Rainwater Harvesting will play a critical role.
Rainwater is captured from the specific roof areas and directed via designed drainage to a Rainstore Tank (usually underground). The incoming rainwater is filtered before entry to the tank.
Highly efficient and reliable submersible pumps in all our systems deliver the stored water to an appliance on demand. The size of the storage tank is determined by considering the amount of water available for storage. This is determined from the size of the roof area and the local average rainfall and the amount of water likely to be used (a function of buildings occupancy and function).
For Domestic applications, it is very important not to over-size the rainwater tank, as an over-sized tank may result in a lower than expected quality of water. We can offer advice on the right system for your property as part of our design package.
