Rainwater harvesting is the process of collecting, storing and then using rainwater as an alternative or complementary source to mains water. Rainwater is usually collected from rooftops and other hard surfaces which allow the volume of water to run off into channels, guttering or downpipes which divert the water into a collection tank and sometimes these are underground tanks.
From there the water can be gravity fed or pumped into a system for use around your home or business premises. Rainwater is commonly used for watering plants and flowers, washing cars, flushing toilets and washing clothes. Filters can be added to a system to remove certain contaminants from the water such as leaves and debris.
In its simplest form, a garden water butt is a complete domestic rainwater harvesting system, capturing and storing rainwater ready to be used in a domestic garden, reducing the dependency on mains supplied water.
