Rainwater harvesting is beginning to become extremely popular all over the world and various governments have started including that in their process to build new ones so that a lot of water can be stored for future use. The government also actively encourages the fitting of underground water tanks.
The technology for large and small scale rainwater harvesting systems is the same; it’s simply the size and scale that is different.
Nowadays both commercial and industrial establishments have started implementing rainwater harvesting solutions into their buildings whether on a small or large scale; it’s becoming increasingly important for commercial entities to reduce their environmental impact across their operations. Industrial Rainwater harvesting is an extremely cost-effective method of achieving this goal, with the added benefit of reducing water consumption and bills.
Industrial Rainwater harvesting is easy to install and maintain while providing cost-effective savings on water consumption; resulting in reduced water bills. Greenly Rainwater harvesting systems can save lots of money each year on your water bills.
Benefits of commercial rainwater harvesting schemes are numerous and far reaching. Our industries use a large amount of water for their processes and the installation of an efficient system can help reduce their reliance on a single supply.
- Rainwater harvesting now makes financial sense because companies can lock into the Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme that provides funding for water-efficient technologies.
- It’s better for industrial machinery because rainwater is softer than a treated mains supply of ‘harder’ water.
- Most industrial and commercial premises have a large amount of roof space that can easily be converted to improve rainwater harvesting.
- In the last 20 years, the average water bill for industrial premises has increased by almost 40% which means that significant savings can be made, now and in the future.
- For commercial rainwater harvesting, larger sites tend to enjoy a quicker return on investment that makes it well worthwhile for industry and substantial commercial developments.
- Reduction in the water bill.
- Lesser demand for water.
- Reduces the need for imported water.
- Promotes both water and energy conservation.
- Improves the quality and quantity of groundwater.
- Does not require a filtration system for landscape irrigation.
- This technology is relatively simple, easy to install, and operate.
- It reduces soil erosion, stormwater runoff, flooding, and pollution of surface water with fertilizers, pesticides, metals, and other sediments.
- It is an excellent source of water for landscape irrigation with no chemicals and dissolved salts and free from all minerals.
Rainwater harvesting is an easy and economical way to deal with this crisis. As more people are becoming environment responsible, rain water harvesting is gaining popularity leading to eco-conservation and constructive use of natural resource. Falling water tables are widespread and most people in urban areas are dependent on bottled water and water cans which is neither cost-effective nor dependable.
The possibility of pollution cannot be completely ruled out. The question of water security is at present a major issue in many parts of the world. One way to deal with this crisis is to adopt rainwater harvesting.
Water is a precious, essential, and important component of the ecosystem. Today we all are heading toward the scarcity of water, and this is mainly because of the lack of water conservation and pollution of water bodies. So, let us not waste a drop of water and start conserving water for further use.
