Why do we need to use Rainwater?

Posted by on

Each person in the UK uses approximately 150 litres of drinking quality water everyday according to the Environment Agency. Around half of this amount is not used as drinking water but also used for other domestic use. Water has gone through an energy and carbon intensive processor filtration, chemical treatment, and pumping from miles away, just to flush down a toilet or water the lawn. This is a clear example on how we waste our precious filtered water. So if you want to do your bit for the environment please install a rainwater harvesting system.

By installing a rainwater harvesting system it will not only help the environment it will also help you.

  • It will reduce your water bills by approximately 50%.
  • In the event of trying to gain a planning permission it will increase your chances, planners favour 'green" applications.
  • In case of a hose pipe ban, you can still water your garden with harvested rainwater.
  • It will reduce flood risk. Rainwater harvesting acts as part of a Sustainable Urban Drainage System a so called SUDS
  • It will provide your home with soft water which means it will help to prevent breakdowns of washing machines and toilets as its lime scale free.
