The need for Rainwater Harvesting Monitoring
Until now, commercial rainwater harvesting systems have often gone unnoticed by building users who are simply unaware that a rainwater harvesting system is dramatically reducing water consumption within the building. Commercial rainwater harvesting is reliant on storm water being collected from the roof area. From here, storm water is channelled into a main rainwater storage tank. The main storage tank of a rainwater harvesting system is usually located out of sight underground or above ground in a back of house area.
Building users will notice little visual difference between flushing with rainwater and flushing with mains water. The nature of rainwater means that when it lands on a roof area it is clean, clear, and perfect for providing a sustainable water supply. Relying on a rainwater harvesting system to produce a sustainable water supply has massive environmental benefits and could count towards between 50-60% of the total water consumption in the building.
