Stormsaver was able to offer this forward-thinking business a bespoke solution for their vast roof area. We successfully delivered and installed a non-pressurised rainwater harvesting system complete with the optional extra of additional filtration. This came in the form of our popular automatic backwashing system ensuring reliable water quality for non-potable use across the site. Non-pressurised duplex systems are recommended where there is a large area of space available for an elevated header tank. Because of the need for efficiency within the automotive site, Stormsaver was able to provide a ‘Building Management System’ connection for ease of monitoring from a central location.
From initial enquiry we established a good working relationship with First Bus to install a 40,000L underground tank to capture an estimated rainfall of 656mm. The system, complete with a 5000L header tank allows a freefall of rainwater from the roof to the underground tank. Water is then distributed to usage points via a booster set. This system is highly appropriate for facilities where there is an abundance of space and a demand for low energy use.
Stormsaver now provide First Bus with a bi-annual maintenance package, where our specialist engineers ensure the system has optimal performance. After the latest visit, our engineers discovered that the system was only reliant on 29% mains water, meaning a massive 71% of rainwater was processed and used. This reinforces that our quality systems can deliver real results and help you to achieve reduction targets and sustainable goals.
