The only Rainwater Harvesting System supplier you will ever need

Chairman - Michael Farnsworth

What is your role at Stormsaver: My role is very varied but focused towards my vision: 

My Vision: A cleaner greener world where everyone has access to fresh, safe water and sanitation. 

We aim to see Stormsaver continue to lead the market, grow and create more job opportunities and want people to be happy and content in their employment with us. 

Our goal is to stay at the top of the market and become synonymous with innovation and creativity.

Specialties: Specialising in the design of bespoke rainwater harvesting systems for commercial educational and domestic buildings 


I have nearly 18 years experience in the Sustainable sector and most notably the Rainwater Harvesting Industry. I am a founding member of the company taking Stormsaver from  'start-up'​ business working from a converted coal shed, to the UK's market leader in commercial rainwater harvesting systems, We are now proud to work from our own custom designed 'sustainable' offices and have a custom designed manufacturing facility on our two acre site.

I consider myself experienced in setting up a small business. I have experienced some of the hard early lessons starting a business and taken some severe knocks and bruises along the journey, but always come out on top ready to take the business forward. This has meant jumping through many hurdles and maintaining a positive and strong attitude throughout to ultimately see the hard work develop into a successful business with a dedicated and supportive committed team. 

My top two water saving tips:  Drink tap water. One litre of bottled water can take up to 5 litres of water to produce it. Invest in a reusable bottle - UK tap water is amongst the best in the world. It's relatively cheap too - it costs about £1.50 for 1000 Litres 

And, not surprisingly: Save for a rainy day. It might seem like it rains all the time but the UK has less available water than many countries on the Med (its true!). 

Thought for the day:

Work hard, work smart, stay focused and be happy! All whilst being sustainable.

“We installed the Stormsaver domestic rainwater harvesting system 8 years ago. The savings on our mains water consumption have been amazing. We are a 4 person household, with 2 kids so lots of baths and clothes washing! We use around 56m3 of mains water a year the same as an average single person household without rainwater harvesting.  Our systems provides rainwater for toilets, laundry and irrigation and has reduced our water bill over £200 a year. I specialise in designing and building low energy housing and it is important that I not only research the best available products, but actual experience using them. The Stormsaver system has been simple to install and maintain with very good after market care, I will be using their product again.”
