What are the Key Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting?

There are numerous benefits to installing a Rainwater Harvesting system; below are the 10 key reasons from our customers:

  1. You save money simply because you use less from your mains supply. You can save 50% to 80% of your water bills. Commercial buildings can save even more money owing to their larger roofs and higher water use.
  2. The average house can harvest 64,000 litres of rain water a year from their roof…that’s 213 water butts!
  3. It enhances a property and gains Eco-homes rating points.
  4. Rainwater is much better for your plant, and is not subject to hosepipe bans.
  5. An average person uses around 18,000 litres of water annually just to flush toilets and wash clothes, so from the environmental perspective, rainwater harvesting is a logical choice.
  6. Water meters are becoming mandatory, and water costs are significantly increasing due to pipe repairs and water shortages. Using rainwater will reduce your metered mains water and save you money.
  7. It provides an off mains supply ensuring a security of supply.
  8. By sending this rainwater into holding tank/s, you reducing the risk of local flooding due to excess runoff.
  9. You help the environment by recycling water.
  10. Rainwater harvesting adds a nice selling feature to your property.
