Rainwater Harvesting Systems

With environmental concerns around water usage becoming increasingly prevalent, more businesses and homeowners are exploring the potential of rainwater harvesting to optimise water usage and reduce reliance on mains water. Reduce mains water usage by 40 to 50 per cent and reduce your water bill with the installation of a rainwater harvesting system from Drain Doctor.

Utilising Rainwater at Home and Work

Harvesting rainwater gives access an additional supply of water, useful for watering plants and grounds, washing the car and any other outdoor tasks normally reliant on the mains water supply. Rainwater harvesting systems are also suitable for washing machines and flushing toilets, heavily reducing your reliance on the mains supply. Savings are available by using a natural supply of rainwater, but more crucially, there are key environmental benefits.

Types of Rainwater Harvesting System

We offer a variety of rainwater harvesting systems, installed by our team of professionals. Our engineers help private home and business owners to save, store and utilise rainwater.

  • Basic rainwater systems
  • Rainwater harvesting systems include stands and groundwater butts with a capacity of up to 400 litres. At Drain Doctor, we provide rainwater tanks with a greater capacity, as well as freestanding and submersible water pumps.

  • Aboveground rainwater systems
  • Aboveground rainwater harvesting systems are known for their ease of installation. Capacities vary from 800-litre plastic tanks all the way up to 100,000-litre steel tanks for commercial and industrial units. Commercial clients looking to reduce their environmental impact may consider including the maintenance of a rainwater harvesting installation in a PPM agreement.

  • Underground rainwater systems
  • If space above ground is limited, an underground rainwater harvesting installation is an option. This solution does require more complex excavation work as a pump will be required to distribute the rainwater from the tank.

    However, at Drain Doctor, we believe in getting the job done right, and if this is the best solution for you, then it’s what we will recommend. When it comes to drainage and rainwater systems, cutting corners can have serious implications.
