Water down the drain

Recycling Rainwater & Waste Water

One of the biggest waste of resources in the UK is water. For a country that has more than its fair share of rain for example, most of us are happy to let it flow down the drains or seep into the ground, thus allowing a potentially valuable resource to be lost.

Capturing & Recycling Rainwater

You may not realise that rainwater can be captured and recycled to provide water for many domestic uses around the house, including washing, bathing and toilet flushing. Average domestic water consumption in UK And when you consider in the average home that these activities account for approximately 65% of domestic water consumption, that is a substantial volume of water. A further 33% of water consumption is used for cleaning, car washing and watering gardens, leaving only 2% on average which is used for drinking.

As households on average only need 2% of their mains water supply to be of drinkable quality, water for all other activities could come from anywhere, as long as there is a means of capturing the supply and pumping it around the house to where it is needed. This is often achieved by installing underground tanks to store captured rainwater from roofs and downpipes, and using this to supply water to all non-drinking water outlets.

Recycling Greywater

Rain isn't the only source of water that can be captured. Waste water from washing, bathing, washing machines and dishwashers can also be captured and recycled for activities like cleaning and gardening. This waste water or greywater as it is commonly known, can also be stored in underground tanks, and goes through a filtering process prior to being fit for reuse.

Commercial, Industrial & Domestic Water Recycling

Recycling rainwater and greywater is ideally suited for properties with a high water consuption and a fairly large roof area for capturing rain. A farm, factory or industrial complex is probably ideal, particularly if there are a lot of outbuildings.
