In recent years there has been an increase in pressure from the government and local authorities for us all to use less “drinking quality” water, thus creating a more sustainable way of living. The Code for Sustainable Homes came into force in 2008 and it positively encourages the installation of rain water harvesting. Since then we have seen an increase in demand for our services to supply and install such systems.
The basic idea behind a rain water harvester is to collect and store the naturally soft rainfall that falls on your house roof (and hard surfaces with gully’s and drainage channels) and supplement this stored water back into your non-drinking water systems. Such systems could include:
- Toilet Flushing
- Outside Taps
- Landscape Irrigation
- Livestock & Animal Water Supplies
- Swimming Pool Replenishment
The benefits of such systems are only positive, both for the environment and your water bill. If you have any questions or queries about how we can help you with your water harvesting requirement, please contact us or call us on Tel: 01491 681220.
