RainWater Harvesting Ltd

Environment Times is raising money for the homeless this winter by creating a 'virtual ecohouse'. RainWater Harvesting Ltd is one of the donors. They write: With changing weather patterns and urban growth stress is being placed on UK water supplies. Future building projects should have design criteria which takes into account Sustainable Water Management.

v ecohouse rainwater1 Rainwater collected off the roof, filtered and stored in an underground tank can be used for any non-potable application.

This includes toilet flushing, washing machines and outdoor usage accounting for 50% of mains water in a domestic home. In business properties this can rise to 85%. There is no requirement to use drinking quality water to flush a toilet.

RainWater Harvesting Ltd design and manufacture mains back up systems in the UK for the UK market. The direct feed Back Up In A Box is a simple solution where the pump runs every time the toilet is flushed.

The award winning gravity fed Rain Director® is user friendly, feature rich and ensures water in any eventuality. The systems are WRAS approved and so accepted by all UK water authorities as compliant to regulations.

v ecohouse rainwater closeup Over the past eighteen months we have been designing and trialling a new product. Rain Activ® combines the benefits of rainwater harvesting with a calculated SUDS element.

Excess water will be held in the underground harvesting tank and enter the network at a pre-determined rate. If the water table becomes critical Rain Activ® will prevent further release until the flood risk subsides.

The product meets all the demand criteria for the 100 year storm scenarios and production will be available for 2016.
