Rainwater Harvesting - Getting Started

What is Rainwater Harvesting?

Rainwater Harvesting is the collection and storage of rainwater from the roof area that is filtered and reused throughout your building for non-potable use such as for toilet flushing, irrigation and vehicle washing.

Why should I have Rainwater Harvesting?

Using recycled rainwater can provide substantial savings on water bills, ensure you achieve your sustainability targets and help you to do your bit to save the environment. It also reduces your carbon footprint too so a double win!
Harvested rainwater minimises the use of unnecessary mains water, by utilising a free, natural resource which falls abundantly onto our roofs. Stormsaver believes we should live in a world where mains water is used for potable use and rainwater is used for everything else.

How does Rainwater Harvesting work?

1.Rainwater is channelled from the roof into a storage tank (tanks can be positioned underground or above ground)
2. The water passes an integrated filter which removes large debris e.g., leaves
3. Excess rainwater flows out of an overflow (this system is designed to skim surface particles bi-annually keeping water quality high)
4. Inside of the tank there are sensors. On demand the submersible pump takes water from the cleanest part of the tank through a suction filter. This supply’s filtered rainwater to the break tank or control panel
5. The filtered rainwater is then supplied to the point of demand either by pressure or gravity feed.

Can I use harvested rainwater for my business and at home?
