Why should I install a Rainwater Harvesting System?

How we use our water*
13% washing clothes
30% flushing toilets

....installing a rainwater harvesting system could supply 50% or more of your domestic water demand and an even more impressive 80% in commercial applications....

Average water consumption in the UK is 150 litres per person (unmetered). 39% or 58.5 litres per day per person could be saved by using recycled rainwater. For a family of four this is 16,38 litres per week which equates to 85,176 lires per year - source Ofwat

What are Rainwater Harvesting Systems?

Drainage Central Rainwater Harvesting Systems offer complete water re-use and filtration solutions using rainwater from roofs collected through guttering and downpipes, storing it for later use. This can be then used for washing clothes, cleaning vehicles, flushing toilets and watering gardens (keen gardeners will have no fears of hose pipe bans with one of our systems installed)

Rainwater Harvesting Domestic Applications:

With a correctly sized Rainwater Harvesting System 50% of the water required can be supplied via natural means
This should be determined by the area over which the water is collected, also known as the available yield, and is dependent upon the usage from the number of WC's supplied and other irrigation requirements

Rainwater Harvesting Commercial Applications:

On commercial developments such as schools, office blocks, etc the demand for water is typically far greater because of the use of WC's, flushing urinals, vehical washing, watering of landscaped areas .... etc. In these applications a saving of up to 80% is typically achieved

The Brett Martin Rainwater Harvesting System is what as known as a 'direct feed system'. This means that the presssurised water is pumped directly from the tanks to the WC's, Garden Taps, etc.

No need to worry - in times of drought, the system is topped up by the mains back up system - ensuring that the pump never runs dry
