Rain Water Harvesting (Grey Water)

Rain Water Harvesting (Grey Water)

Greywater refers to the reuse of water drained from baths, showers, washing machines, and sinks for irrigation and other water conservation applications.

What is rain water harvesting (Grey Water)?

As with all of the earth’s natural resources there is becoming more emphasis on us harnessing and using whatever we can to become more ecologically friendly and at the same time save money. Rain water in the UK is plentiful as we all know! So why not use it within our homes?

In almost all cases, clean rainwater is left to wash away into the drains while expensive mains water is used for flushing toilets and washing. Only a very small amount of water that we use from our taps is used for drinking.

By collecting and using rain water, we can reduce our reliance on mains water.

Systems such as those produced by Kingspan work by collecting rain from your roof gutters and storing it in a suitable underground/over ground tank. The water that is collected is then pumped into the house for non-potable applications such as toilet flushing and washing machines. If the tank runs empty, the system automatically switches to mains supply.

What savings are to be made with rain water harvesting?

In some households up to 50% of water can be saved, thus reducing your water bill.

How much can it cost to install a rain water harvesting solution?

From £1500 (basic collection)
