Rainwater harvesting as a way to supplement supply has become an imperative. Over recent years water costs in South Africa combined with sewerage rates have escalated far faster than inflation. This means that it is now worthwhile to install a rainwater harvesting system.
Because the water can be delivered to wherever your water tanks stand they can be positioned anywhere you like. Rainwater tanks no longer need to be installed close to your house to harvest the rainwater. They can now stand unobtrusively at your home or commercial building.
Rainwater is delivered by gravity to rainwater tanks, and supplied to a whole household in a sustainable manner. Furthermore, harvesting rainwater is viable i.e. the system can pay for itself within a reasonable period of time.
