Home rainwater harvesting systems are a solution to a water conservation issue. Thus, we can all reuse. Given, in different ways. So, principle reason being access to clean water. In addition, amount required to generate power. However, more practical reasons exist for installation.
- Irrigation for gardens.
- Supplement wells that don’t have enough.
- Instead of contaminated.
Home Rainwater Harvesting Systems
To rain harvest we need a system. Hence, must be cleaned by something first. After, collection. Then, reused. Homeowners have 3 basic reasons.
- Prevent Soil Erosion
- Conserve Water (Reuse)
- Save Money
Therefore, we have our own reasons for it. Thus, an overall investment in family, community, and neighborhood. Storms cause floods and mudslides. After, contaminates water. So, anything to help is a real life saver before hand.
Along those lines, maintenance is required. Tanks shall be cleaned twice a year. Water has to be tested. Since, stops us from using tap water. Plus, dirt from washing away. Then, got to be clean.
Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting
- To start, pipes from roof collect.
- Next, goes into a barrel shape tank.
- After, layers filter with sand and rocks.
- Last, reused for irrigation.
Commercial Rainwater Harvesting
Commercial water collects is different. Systems need a custom design. For example, house tanks are about 200 gallons. While, industrial are 600,000 gallons. Big difference.
Apartments are homes within the commercial real estate definition. Mixed use real estate. And so, we collect from places other than roof.
Pipes designed for water to drain from special collection points. For instance, balconies may have multiple drains. Each leading a different place.
It follows, water immediately reused for irrigation. Also, diverted to prevent erosion. In any event, caught and filtered for us to use.
