Beside from helping us to save water, collecting rainwater can be very useful. Find out how to collect and use it!
Why should we collect rainwater?
A person uses around 150 liters of water per day. It is indeed a quite significant cost for your household. However, you can easily reduce your expense by almost 40% by recovering rainwater. Even if this water cannot be used for cooking purposes, to take a bath or to drink, it can be used to wash clothes, clean floors or water plants. A water recovery system usually has the capacity to store from 200 to 10 000 liters of water. The amount of water that you can recovery depends on the region in which you live in. You should be able to collect around 600 liters of water per year.
How to collect rainwater?
To collect rainwater, you need to install a water recovery system on your roof or in your garden and connect the reservoir to a gutter. The water then will fall right into it. Always choose those with lids to filter dead leaves and dirt to prevent the development of insects. If you will only use the rainwater for you garden, a simple tank will be enough. Using rainwater for domestic purposes will require a tank equipped with a pump to carry water up to your house.
