Rain Water Harvesting
Our Engineers can design systems for single residencies right up to multiple
new build housing developments. Fresh water is one of the most precious natural
resources we have. The UK experiences water shortages when rain is scarce yet most
of us take clean water for granted. As a consequence the UK wastes a lot of water.
Water that is currently extracted from Rivers, reservoirs or underground sources is
becoming more environmentally damaging to obtain, necessitating the need for alternatives.
A large percentage of the water that we use doesn’t need to be of drinking quality, for
instance water used to irrigate our gardens and agriculture, to flush our toilets or wash our
clothes. There is an environmentally friendly alternative.
The basic concept of Rain Water Harvesting is one that we are all familiar with. Catching rain
as it falls and storing it for later use. Just like our water butts do in the garden.
By taking this concept to the next level Floodguard Systems Ltd are helping to increase the
uptake of Rain Water Harvesting by offering bespoke system design and implementation of Rain
Water Harvesting on a commercial scale. The rain water harvested is collected in tanks and
then pumped to systems that don’t require "drinking quality" water such as toilet cisterns,
outside hose pipes and washing machines.
