What is Rainwater Harvesting?

Whether you are aware or not, you have probably come across some or another form of rainwater harvesting. A simplified diagram of the process looks something like this: rainwater is collected after it falls to the earth. It is then stored in a variety of ways, and then used at a later point. It can be purified and used as drinking water, be used for daily applications and even used in certain industries. In short, Rainwater harvesting is a process or technique that encompasses collecting, cleaning, storing and using rainwater for a variety of purposes. Below we discuss two of the biggest advantages of harvesting rainwater.

Reduce Water Bills

Harvested rainwater can be put to use for several non-drinking functions. For families and businesses, this can lead to a large reduction in water bills. On an industrial scale, harvesting rainwater can provide water for many processes to take place smoothly without having to exhaust nearby water sources. A as rule, rainwater can simply be stored for use during times when water supplies are low.

It’s Green

Using harvested rainwater is an excellent way of doing your bit to help the environment. Using clean, drinkable water to wash cars and flush toilets is a very wasteful practice, and doing everything you can to save water is a step in the right direction when it comes to being environmentally friendly. Environmentally speaking, it is better to use clean water for drinking and cooking purposes and rainwater for everything else. There has never been a better time to be green!
