This Good Building Guide covers the use of rainwater in a domestic property. Most houses have some means of collecting run-off from one or more locations including the house, garage, shed and greenhouse roofs and, possibly, paved areas. Local water suppliers have encouraged this collection of rainwater by making available, at reasonable cost, water butts together with diverters to fit in the downpipe. Systems are now available to store collected rainwater and pump it for use for irrigation and WC flushing. The different options are described together with system design, components and materials.
It will be useful to designers and building owners wanting to reduce water consumption.
