In the words of Benjamin Franklin: "When the well is dry, we know the worth of water." The average South African household tends to use about 250 litres of water a day. That amounts to 7 500 litres a month. Experts say that South Africa will run out of water in 2030 unless there is a complete mind shift about the true value of water. Although it is easy to blame the water crisis on the failure of government to adequately improve water infrastructure, capacity and efficiency to cope with the increased demand for it, the power to change is in your hands. Invest in a Rainwater Harvesting System to secure the future of water for everyone.
Rainwater Harvesting Systems
Rainwater Harvesting Systems have become the number one option for collecting, storing and using water in and around the home. They are easy to install and nearly effortless to maintain and will save you money.
How do Rainwater Harvesting Systems work?
Firstly, you need a slightly elevated surface, the roof typically has the most surface area, where water can run down into a redirecting system, most commonly your gutters, and then into a catchment area, which is a water tank fitted with a filter system. From here, depending on your usage habits, water can again be redirected to your home which will allow it to be used in the bathroom, kitchen, for laundry or even the garden. It is a guilt-free way of using water when restrictions are implemented.
Affordable, Reliable and easy to maintain
A Rainwater Harvesting System is an affordable solution to a global water shortage problem. It is extremely reliable and specially designed to last you a lifetime when properly looked after. Maintaining your system is as simple as keeping the area around your tank clean, removing debris and leaves from your gutter now and then when needed, and cleaning your roof. Taking these effortless steps not only ensures the durability of your system but keeps your water clean and safe.
