Safe, natural, economical and sustainable source of quality water

Rainwater is a safe, natural, economical and sustainable source of quality water for all purpose - drinking, cooking, bathing, laundry, toilet flushing, watering the garden. Rainwater is safe and healthy as it does not come in contact with the soil, and therefore it does not contain contaminants such as harmful bacteria, dissolved salts, minerals or heavy metals. Significant economic, social and environmental benefits can be achieved by using rainwater. Rainwater Harvesting saves water, money & helps the environment. Once you have installed a rain harvesting system, you use less mains water and can reduce your water bills. By using rainwater for toilet flushing, laundry and garden use alone, you can reduce typical household's mains water requirements by 70%. Rainwater Harvesting reduces the significant damage to our creeks, water habitats and organisms caused by stormwater runoff, and save the environment. Rain Harvesting often involves the collection, storage and distribution of rainwater from the roof. Getting good quality water (safe and clean water) with minimal maintenance is not a simple as just putting in a tank, you need to install a complete system to get the best results. Importantly, Safety measures must be applied during which rainwater is collected, stored and distributed in order to optimize water quality. Complete Rainwater Harvesting system includes: choosing suitable ROOF SURFACE, installing GUTTER MESH Systems, fitting GUTTER OUTLETS from the underside of the gutter, fitting Leaf Eater or Leaf Beater RAIN HEADS to downpipes, installing WATER DIVERTER/S and the TANK SCREEN, choosing appropriate size of rain water barrels, attaching INSECT PROOF SCREENS or FLAP VALVES to the end of all pipes to the tank screen and to TANK OVERFLOW OUTLETS, installingl PUMP SYSTEM, installing RAINWATER FILTER, installing WATER LEVEL MONITOR.

Rainwater harvesting technologies are simple to install, operate and maintain. Maintenance is generally limited to the annual cleaning (before the start of the major rainfall season) of the tank and regular inspection of the gutters and down-pipes. Cleaning typically consists of the removal of dirt, leaves and other accumulated materials. The drawback of Rainwater Harvesting are mainly due to the limited supply and uncertainty of rainfall. The capital cost of rainwater harvesting systems is highly dependent on the type of catchment, conveyance and storage tank materials/rain barrels used. The storage capacity of rain barrels should be calculated by considering annual rainfall, roof catchment area, water usage and site characteristics. You can choose from 34 Gallons to 300 Gallons.
