Rainwater Harvesting Services and Its Benefits

23 June 2016

It’s true, Australia is the driest continent in the world, which is why catching rainwater has been practised all over the country. Now that many more people now live in cities, compared to decades ago, catching rainwater isn’t utilised as much because of city supplied water that is piped to residential and commercial properties.

However, more and more residential and commercial property owners are now realising the benefits of catching their own rainwater and are seeking rainwater harvesting services to help them.

Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting Services

Water is a natural resource, and it isn’t free when it is pumped into homes and buildings, however, installing a rainwater harvesting system can greatly decrease monthly water bills by being less dependent on piped in water from the city. With a water catchment system installed by professional rainwater harvesting services, families can collect, store, and then use the water for everyday tasks. How is it possible to harvest rainwater, you ask?

Rainwater is simply collected by using a home’s roof as a catchment, the water is then rerouted to water storage tanks, and then used when needed. Rain harvesting services are not just for residential homes, commercial and industrial properties also utilise rain catchment systems.

How much Rainwater can You Expect to Store?

Setting up a rainwater catchment system, to collect water from gutters and downpipes and then stored into a water tank, is an effective way to save money. Water tanks can be installed above or below the ground, and as much as 100,000 litres of water can be stored in this way to meet the needs of the average household, and much more water can be stored for commercial and industrial needs. The only limit is the size and number of the storage tanks used.

The whole system is quite basic and very easy to set up by a professional rainwater harvesting service.
