How Much Does Rainwater Harvesting Save? (SOLVED!)

Every household will be different and the total amount of money saved depends on a number of factors which differ from property to property 😎 It also varies depending on which system you have, so if you just have a Water Butt which is predominately only used for garden applications, your savings aren’t going to be as large as installing a below ground or integrated system, which enables you to use rainwater all around your home for flushing toilets, washing etc 👍 But we can work with averages which can give you a rough idea if a RWH is worth the investment.

Stormwater attenuation is sometimes necessary when you are developing new areas. Any new development must reduce the risk of downstream flooding. This is a requirement in planning. You have many options, such as balancing the ponds and other SuDS technologies where available. The best method to reduce attenuation is attenuation way of dealing with the site run-off but does nothing to reduce on-site water It is not recommended for use during dry spells. Rainwater harvesting is a good option for both rain and water. It provides a measure of attenuation, as well as a reservoir of water during periods when there has been no precipitation. [2]

Rainharvesting.co.uk This site provides more information. A rainwater harvesting system’s base elements include the pump, filter, storage tank and pipes. Connectors are also included. The UK Rainwater Management Association recommends that a quality domestic system should cost an average of £2,000 to £3,000, excluding additional features, installation and VAT. Commercial properties These systems will likely require larger systems and possibly additional features like monitoring units or UV disinfection. Although there will be an additional cost, it is usually more affordable and offers a greater return on investment. If retrofitting buildings that are already in use, additional costs may also apply to connect the gutter to the tank and tank for the property. Shem E. revised the information on September 2, 2021.
