Water treatment plants are coming under increasing pressure to supply clean, safe water. As the demand increases so will the cost. By harvesting and utilising rainwater in our homes and on our gardens, we can reduce our demand for municipal water, thus reducing our monthly bill.
Water and electricity are both critical services, however the temporary loss of water is a very serious issue for a household. By plumbing your rainwater into your house, you can flush toilets, wash clothes or even shower or bath. By harvesting and utilising rainwater we lower our demand for municipal water, reducing our dependence on dams and water treatment plants.
Rainwater is a safe, clean source of water.
What is Rainwater harvesting?
Rainwater harvesting is a way of saving the rainwater which would normally flow off a roof and down the drain, and using it in a number of applications ranging from garden irrigation to in house usage for toilets, washing machines and even (with extra filtration), human consumption.
How Does Rainwater Harvesting Work?
A RainCell™ tank is fitted to your down pipe from your roof, and falling rain enters the tank through a filter screen which removes leaves and other matter. A pump is fitted to the tank to pump the rainwater to its desired application. The harvesting of rainwater not only reduces the amount of domestic mains supply that a household uses but also reduces the demand on the domestic water supply in general.
