What Are The Benefits Of Rainwater Harvesting?


By harvesting rainwater when available and using it later, the consumption of Municipal Water will decrease, and thus the cost of the monthly Water Bill


By capturing rainwater and using it on the property, the user will decrease the need for water from dams and rivers. As water is becoming more and more scarce, every person is required to be responsible in how we capture, use and reuse water.

How Much Water Could I Harvest?

●    1mm of rainfall on 1 m² roof area = 1 Litre of harvested water
●    If your location has an average rainfall of 1000mm per year.
●    If your factory has a roof area of 1 000m², then the water captured over a year could be 1 000 000 Liters or 1 000 kiloliters*

*Calculation (1 000mm X 1 000m² = 1 000 000 liters)
