So you’re not a prepper, and that’s just fine. But that doesn’t mean you should overlook the option of rainwater harvesting systems in your home. This is especially true in a country as dry as ours, where seasons can get as arid as they come. The truth is, even without the possibility of doomsday looming on the horizon, that using these systems to catch and use rainwater can provide your home with plenty of advantages, lets discuss a few of them here.
Maintenance is simple
Systems that have been designed to catch and store rainwater have been done so based on a fairly simple technology (as ingenious as it may be), and because of this, require surprisingly little maintenance. They in fact come at a fraction of the cost of water purification systems, use less energy and require very little maintenance; leaving them with fewer running costs than alternatives.
Reduce Water Costs
Your municipal water bill can climb quite rapidly; this is especially true if you use water for a number of processes. Hygiene, washing up, laundering clothing and irrigation all take up a substantial amount of water; and when this comes from a municipal supply, comes at quite a cost.
Can be used for Irrigation
Rainwater is free from harmful chemicals, which, if sourced elsewhere, might have contaminants in it that makes it unfit for use on soil. Rainwater, on the other hand is perfect for it, and because it is cost effective, can be used to irrigate large tracks of land at less of an expense, and with greater ease.
Better for the Environment
You don’t need another blogger banging on about how we need to save the planet from our incessant consumption of its resources, and water is a major concern for environmentalists. We know we need to do our part to keep the planet green, and that means saving on water where it counts. Gallons and gallons of rainwater is wasted each year, simply because it isn’t being harvested. With a rainwater harvesting system, you can do your part towards changing that.
