Types of rainwater harvesting systems we install
If you’ve conducted any research you’ll appreciate there are hundreds of water harvesting solutions on the market. Most notably, these usually all fit into 3 specific types. Most systems will require a water storage tank, plumbing, filter and pump.
Garden rainwater harvesting systems
This is what we would call entry level harvesting and is suitable for irrigating the garden or washing the car. As the name implies it is only suitable for domestic purposes.
Indirect rainwater harvesting systems
Indirect or gravitational rainwater harvesting utilises a header tank which can supply your home or business with water. Typically the water is then used on appliances, garden taps, watering plants, cleaning, toilets and so on.
It is suitable for domestic purposes and can be scaled up for larger commercial applications. Typically, you will also need a pump of some sort to aid the flow.
Direct rainwater harvesting systems
For home use, a direct rainwater harvesting installation is the most popular. The storage tank can be located above ground or below ground and is pumped into the building to your appliances. This kind of system can also be replenished by main water once empty.
