Why is Retrofit Rainwater Harvesting needed?

Existing buildings are naturally less water-efficient than newly constructed developments because water-saving technologies have since been developed to prevent the overconsumption of water. Water scarcity is growing for the United Kingdom with water utility companies estimating an additional 4 billion litres of additional water per day by 2050.

Typically, buildings are constructed with a single mains water drinking supply to fulfil the total water demand of the building. Rainwater Harvesting provides a secondary, more sustainable water supply for the building which is for non-potable water usage. This prevents high-quality drinking water from being wasted for toilet flushing, irrigation, and washdown. We can help to save potable water supplies for when they are needed most.

Rainwater Harvesting Systems can give your organisation more autonomy over its water consumption through reduced reliance on mains water supplies. Why is this important?

  • Reduced water bills for your organisation helping to pay for the initial cost of the rainwater harvesting system. The typical payback period of a rainwater harvesting system is 5-7 years.
  • Reduced scope 3 carbon emissions. Scope 3 Carbon emissions are the hardest type of carbon emissions to offset as they are not directly controlled by the organisation. Rainwater harvesting is proven to emit less carbon emissions than traditional mains water.

Installing a rainwater harvesting system can also be a great marketing tool highlighting your organisation’s commitment to ESG goals (environmental, social, and governance). Stormsaver Rainwater Harvesting can be supplied with our Monitoring Display to highlight water savings to building users and visitors.
