Water is getting more and more expensive

Water is an expensive commodity. Even without any further increase in our current water consumption incrasing water costswe seem to be paying higher and higher amounts in water charges every year. We are told that this is due to the increased cost of producing drinking water, and the high cost of waste water disposal. Ground water levels are also declining in most regions, with the result that drinking water reserves on the whole are becoming scarcer. This also translates into higher utility charges due to the higher costs to exploit these scarce reserves.
The overall situation is unlikely to change in the medium term and we can only expect that water charges will continue to rise for the foreseeable future.

Save up to 50% of drinking water with rain water harvesting

If you look at the pie chart we can see a typical water usage breakdown for a normal household based on an average consumption of 150 litres of drinking water per person. This chart clearly shows that as much as 50 % of the drinking water that is currently used can be safely replaced with rainwater without any loss in convenience. Rainwater can be used for laundry, flushing toilets, general cleaning and garden irrigation. Recycled rainwater is soft water. It is better suited to some garden plants, it causes no limescale damage to appliances, and it reduces the amount of detergents required for washing.
Based on future water price projections, a complete rainwater recycling system, excluding installation costs, would pay for itself in 5 to 7 years. In addition, rainwater recycling projects can often be eligible for financial support from local municipalities.

Water Quality you can trust

The filter technology is tried and tested, and produces water that is always clean, clear and odour free. Additionally, the water from rainwater recycling systems is perfectly safe to use and poses no danger to personal health or hygiene. This has been verified by various studies carried out at institutes such as the Hygiene Institute at Bremen and others.


Use rainwater - Save the environment

The storage and recycling of rainwater also makes ecological sense. In this situation instead of the rainwater requiring immediate percolation, the rainwater is retained on the property. This eases pressure on the drainage system. Furthermore, if excess surface water, due to intensive rainfall (or full storage tanks), is directed to a secondary absorption system, then the risk of flooding can be further reduced. Such absorption systems provide immediate temporary storage, followed by a slow controlled release of the storm water into percolation.
