Rainwater Harvesting is an effective and eco-friendly method of reducing municipal water usage in your home, which will lead to reduced water bills and deliveries. Making the switch to a rainwater harvesting system is neither complicated nor time-consuming and will result in a wide range of benefits for your home.
The savings mean that the equipment pays for itself. Before installation, it is recommended that the rooftop
and gutters are cleaned before using it as a collection surface.
The simplest way to collect and store rainwater from rooftops during the rainy season is to place a Jumbo Tank directly at the gutter downpipe. It is best placed on a flat, level surface, such as brick and mortar, and slightly raised if the tank will be drained using a bucket. A hole can be cut into the top of your Jumbo Tank to fit the downpipe.
Care should be taken not to leave space around the downpipe, as to not allow sunlight to enter the tank and thereby discourage the growth of algae. The lid is best kept on the Jumbo Tank for this reason. It is not advisable to cut
an inlet hole on the lid, as this is best used for inspection purposes.
A net or sieve can also be placed over the end of the pipe to catch any debris before it enters the tank. A tap can be placed near the bottom of the tank for fitting a hose pipe or for filling other containers.
A pump can easily be added to the system to fill another tank or to pump directly into the house. It is also recommended that a filter be added before pumping into an existing water tank or being plumbed directly into the house.
