Landmark Environmental believe, wherever possible, utilising what is already there. When it comes to water, one place to look is from rain. Rather than let rainwater run down the drain, why not use it first. Landmark Environmental work in partnership with rainwater harvesting experts stop rain water being wasted for their clients.
What is Rainwater Harvesting?
Rainwater harvesting utilises water collected from rainfall to be used where appropriate. Rainwater is a free, natural resource that is frequently overlooked.
Why Should Rainwater Harvesting be considered?
The Code for sustainable homes and BREEAM are becoming an increasing pressure for water reduction. Building regulations are also focusing on the reduction of mains water usage. SUDS is putting pressure on directing rainwater to sewer. Rainwater harvesting is therefore a potential solution to reduce main water usage.
How Can Rainwater Be Used?
Most buildings have areas where potable water is currently used and recycled rain water is a viable alternative. For example; public toilets, washing machines, irrigation & wash down facilities could all use rainwater rather than potable mains water.
What Are The Benefits Of Rainwater Harvesting?
- The premises will require less mains water thus reducing water bills
- Reduced sewerage charge
- Meets green agenda requirements
- The cost of the equipment can be offset in year 1 against tax
