ENDURAMAXX Rainwater Harvesting Tanks
Rainwater Harvesting Tanks.
Enduramaxx rainwater harvesting tanks are available for above and below ground installation. Above ground tanks are able to store up to 90,000 litres which can be used for agricultural sprayers off a grain store, water for dairy wash down from barns, pressure washers, greywater systems for flushing toilets for commercial factories and office blocks and a number of applications for washing and cooling in industry. If you require more storage, please contact our sales team for a quote. Below-ground tanks are available from 800 litres to 9,500 litres capacity, with the option of plastic or galvanised lid and a range of turret sizes. Rainwater filters are available for removing leaves and moss out of the water coming off the roof to save a build-up of sediment in the tanks.
These are the six most common uses for Enduramaxx Rainwater Harvesting tanks in the United Kingdom.
Outside The House
1) Garden Watering
Some homes use hundreds of litres of drinkable water each year watering their garden, either through hosepipes or watering cans, or through automated sprinkler systems. With our weather becoming more erratic, changing radically from heatwave to monsoon in a matter of days, homeowners are becoming more dependent on garden watering systems to irrigate their lawns, crops and flower beds.
2) Car Washing
An average hosepipe will race through around 10 litres per minute, while a domestic bucket may hold 15 litres of water. It is no surprise, therefore, that a homeowner can easily use 10 to 100 litres of water every time they wash their car, the average being 35 litres. It is an open argument about whether hose or bucket washing is more water efficient, with some people claiming that using a hose with a trigger attachment uses less than washing with a bucket.
3) Filling Ponds & Other Garden Features
Ponds too are far better topped up with rainwater due to its soft nature and the fact that it is free from chlorine residue that can adversely affect wildlife.
Inside The House
4) Toilet Flushing
Within the home, the most common use of rainwater is for toilet flushing. For this purpose, rainwater requires nothing more than good filtration, to remove debris and particles that might otherwise discolour the water or block valves. Older toilets can use up to 13.6 L per flush, while modern eco-flush toilets use as little as 4 L. Even so, the average person in the UK flushes 34.5 litres down the u-bend every day, a volume that can quickly mount up in family households.
5) Clothes Washing
Harvested rainwater is also excellent when used for washing clothes, particularly in hard water areas. Rainwater being naturally soft will use less detergent and will prevent the build-up of limescale, prolonging the life of the machine. Again, for this purpose it will need nothing more than good mechanical filtration, ideally to less than 0.5mm (500 microns).
