Storm Water Harvesting for Irrigation:
Irrigation consumes roughly 30% of total household water, depending on the premises and season. To use pure drinking water for irrigation is both irresponsible and unnecessary. Stormwater is a great alternative source of water for this purpose and will save you money whilst conserving water.
The type of irrigation system will determine the degree to which the storm water needs to be treated before reuse in order to reduce health risks and clogging of irrigation pipes and valves. We highly recommend drip irrigation for both flower beds and/or lawns. Drip irrigation can save up to 70% of water and will make your harvested storm water last so much longer.
