A guide to Retrofit Rainwater Harvesting

There is a misconpetion that retrofitting a rainwater harvesting system in an existing building is too complex and constly. However, with the latest rainwater harvesting technologies, retrofitting is easier than ever before. In this week's blog we take a look at the importance of retrofitting existing building stock. Find out more here. 

Stormsaver launch Rainwater Harvesting Monitoring System

Until now, the investment in a Rainwater Harvesting System has been confined to plant rooms which are not publicly visible. The new Stormsaver Monitoring System is designed to be a visible educational tool designed to highlight excellent sustainability credentials. Learn more here. 

How does Rainwater Harvesting help during dry spells

Feeling the heat? So are our water supplies. Demand for water supplies during dry spells is extremely high. When rainfall occurs, the water runoff is stored in a reservoir until supplies are required. Find out more here. 

How Rainwater Harvesting works with Blue-Green Roofs

Happy Green Roof Day! Did you know that Rainwater Harvesting can be used with Blue-Green Roofs to count towards onsite attenuation capacity and provide a sustainable water supply within the building? Combining the two technologies just makes sense. Find out more here.

Why sustainable water supplies are a MUST in 2023

The construction of new homes and commercial property is occurring at a rapid rate as the population continues to grow. The problem is that most of these new developments use the same method to supply water as the Victorian times. Find out more here.

A guide to Rainwater Harvesting Tank Cleaning

Like any mechanical or electrical system, Rainwater Harvesting Systems perform best when they are maintained properly. Regular planned preventative maintenance can ensure a safe, sustainable water supply and prolong system life span.

Why combine Rainwater Harvesting with Attenuation capacity

Attenuation capacity often sits empty waiting for the next incoming storm. Combined rainwater harvesting and attenuation systems are designed to make more efficient use of the otherwise underutilised storage capacity by using the capacity as storage for the rainwater harvesting system. Find out more here.

Did you know Rainwater Harvesting reduces carbon emissions?

The nature of rainwater harvesting means that it is often forgotten about as rainwater tanks are located underground, but it is an important tool to protect our environment.
