Rain Harvesting Systems Provides comprehensive solutions for managing and harvesting stormwater. Our services include:
- Detailed water assessments and proposals on methods of reducing commercial and industrial water consumption
- Stormwater attenuation solutions with heavy duty underground harvesting tanks
- Drainage and stormwater management for turf areas with in-field harvesting tanks
- Permeable paving to dissipate stormwater runoff
Although storm water detention is commonly a prerequisite for new developments, the impact of detaining
storm water does little to reverse the effect of new impermeable surfaces creating the storm water runoff in
the first place. Prior to development, 95% of the rain would have filtered through the soil and recharged the
ground water. Instead, the rainwater becomes storm water runoff, which adds to the deterioration of roads,
storm water infrastructure, and river banks all the while collecting toxins, metal and pathogens, and carrying
them to our dams. Reusing rain water ensures that the storm water runoff is reduced and our most valuable
resource can be utilized without the need for treatment and the pumping costs involved in returning the water
from our dams to where it fell in the first place.
Indirectly, commerce pays the highest tariffs for water, paying a flat rate for water from the first kilolitre used.
In additional, sewerage charges are calculated based on water consumption which almost doubles the
effective cost of water. These sectors are also the most likely to be effected by water price hikes and water
restrictions when potable water shortages become evident.
Rain Harvesting Systems provides a set of solutions to solve stormwater management and field drainage
challenges with the added benefit of harvesting the rainwater for external and internal use. Utilizing rainwater
reduces municipal water costs and provides an environmentally friendly solution with attractive payback
periods. Our service includes site evaluation, feasibility and sustainability studies and design. We can also
assist consultants with environment impact studies allowing a holistic green building solution which will
improve productivity and reduce costs.
Products utilized in commercial designs include collection filters from roofs, underground first flush diverters,
permeable paving, stone landscape collectors for gutter-less roofs and storm water runoff, light duty tanks
and under paving heavy duty tanks. These products are optimized to produce a cost effective solution which
will save money, save water and save the environment.
