Why Now Is the Best Time to Install a Rainwater Harvesting System

Spring is here! This means that before we know it it will be summer, aka, rainy season. Rainwater can be harvested and reused to reduce your dependence on mains water. If your property is metered, this can reduce your bills and reduce the pressure on the conventional supply. As rainwater is collected rather than flowing directly into the drains when it rains, rainwater harvesting has a beneficial, if minor, effect on the drainage system.

What is Rainwater Harvesting?

A rainwater harvesting system collects and stores rainwater for various uses – but not for drinking. In most cases, these systems are used to flush toilets, but they can also supply washing machines, irrigation of the garden, and other non-potable uses.

 An excellent reason to invest in a rainwater harvesting tank right now is to protect the environment, prepare for emergencies, increase your garden's self-sufficiency and resilience, provide the best possible water for your plants, and save money on your water/sewer bills.

The Ground Is Dry

While rainwater harvesting projects are all about rain, the truth is, that no one wants to work in the rain. Installing a rainwater harvesting system requires intermediate DIY skills. A dry surface is ideal for levelling.

You're Ready for the First Catch of the Summer

As soon as that first drop falls, you'll be glad you set up your rainwater harvesting system. We need to conserve water to protect the planet for future generations.

Long Waiting Lines Won't Be a Problem

Installing rainwater harvesting tanks in the summer is a popular choice. But, by the time you figure out all the steps, you've missed the first storms.
