UK businesses & homes urged to use rainwater harvesting

UK businesses and households are being urged to use rainwater harvesting technology to offset the rise in water bills announced yesterday.
rainwater tanksThe call from energy saving advisors at Enevis follows Ofwat’s announcement of the above-inflation rise to household water bills. The regulator confirmed average UK household water and sewage bill would increase by 3.5% from April this year.

The firm suggests rainwater harvesting provides an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way of protecting against the price hike. Rainwater harvesting devices collect rain that falls onto roofs and can be stored in water tanks for later use.

Richard Jones, National Sales Manager at Enevis said: “This technology, which can be as simple as a water tank under a down pipe from the guttering, provides water for a variety of uses inside your home or business – from toilets and washing machines to showers and baths.

“This helps to reduce mains water consumption and by association, water bills for all investors; from small-scale domestic users to multinational companies. Those with large roof catchment areas or space for above or underground tanks can enjoy substantial cost and environmental savings.”

Rainwater collected from rooftops and stored in water tanks could become contaminated along the way but this does not mean that it cannot be used for drinking water.  Appropriately filtered, rainwater is possibly one of the healthiest types of water to drink and it is great for hair washing and plants (compared to chemical-laden, chlorinated municipal water).  So while installing rain water tanks can reduce water bills, it can also positively affect your health and garden.  If you live in South Africa, click on the links below to see the range of JoJo water tanks, JoJo tank stands and other JoJo Tanks available.
