Uses of rainwater harvesting
Harvested rainwater can be used for many applications. We can install a single small tank for watering pot plants or washing the car or we can harvest as much water as possible and link it to an irrigation system.
It can also be used for toilet flushing or even just to assist with flooding issues. A small tank as a back-up emergency water supply, The list is endless….
How to work out the potential water to be collected by rainwater harvesting
- 1mm of rainfall on 1 m² roof area = 1 litre of harvested water
- Kwazulu Natal has an average rainfall of 1000mm per year.
- This means that if you have carport area of say 50m², then the water captured over a year could be 50 000 liters or 50 kiloliters*
*Calculation (1 000mm X 50m² = 50 000 liters)
