Significant economic, social and environmental benefits can be achieved by using rainwater.
By using Rainwater Harvesting systems to supply water for some, or indeed all of our requirements, you can reduce your dependence on mains water. Our water supplies are falling and water restrictions are in place in many communities to reduce our overall water usage and protect our supplies.
|Rainwater harvesting is collecting rainwater for future uses. There are many types of rainwater harvesting systems that stem from simple landscaping adjustments to large cisterns buried in the earth.|
