DIY and Industrial Trade News – June 2020

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the question of clean drinking water is becoming more important than ever before. Homeowners should save water for a dry patch.

Rainwater harvesting is the collection, storage and distribution of rainwater. The perfect storage facility is a water tank. Harvested rainwater can essentially be used anywhere where tap water is used. The idea of using drinking water to flush toilets and water lawns is wasteful especially in light of water shortages and the dwindling reliability of the national water supply network,

Rainwater can be used for all household purposes, including irrigation, refilling pools, flushing toilets and washing cars.

Harvesting rainwater is easy. Water rain runners are fixed to each of the gutter downpipes to initially harvest the rainwater. This water is fed into rainwater storage tanks, and a pump system is used to pump this water from the rainwater tanks to the house.
