Water is an essential element in the existence of the world. Although much of the world’s surface is covered with water, it is estimated that only 3% of the water is actually fit for consumption. With these stark figures, it’s no wonder why more and more people are turning to technology to conserve water and act more austere when it comes to using and saving water.
As the world’s water sources continue to deplete, farm and domestic rainwater harvesting tanks have evolved to become part of the solution to this problem. Even though many of South African’s homes receive water through their taps, electricity and energy is still consumed to keep the filters and pumps working so that water can be distributed to the millions of taps around the country. By actively harvesting rainwater, not only are you conserving water, but you are also inadvertently saving electricity consumption. Rainwater is free, and in many instances it is simply drained into soil, so why not benefit from it?
How It Will Benefit You to Use Rainwater Harvesting Tanks
There are many reasons why rainwater harvesting is important for the environment, but you will also benefit from making use of this technology. Here are only a few of the ways you can benefit from the rainwater harvesting process:
