Four water conservation benefits of rainwater harvesting

When you think about it… do we need to use mains water to sprinkle on our lawns and garden?  Definitely not!  Harvested rainwater is the perfect candidate for irrigation use in addition to so many other water uses.  By using rainwater harvesting systems to supply water for some, or all of our watering needs, you can reduce dependence on using the mains water supply.

Overall, rainwater harvesting is viewed as a practice that is socially acceptable and environmentally responsible all the while, promoting self-sufficiency.

Here's four water conservation benefits of rainwater harvesting

  1. The rainwater that falls on your roof and property is essentially free.  All it takes is a method to harvest it into a tank for later use.
  2. Rainwater harvesting can be a great educational tool to get people to recognise their individual or household water usage. This can get them to start conserving water in other areas around their home.
  3. Rainwater harvesting helps utilities reduce peak demands during summer months, saving mains water for more important and appropriate water uses.
  4. While rainwater can be a perfect primary water source for many uses and situations, it is also a great backup water supply for emergency situations.
