It’s the process of capturing rain water to supplement or replace your current water sources. The process involves redirecting water that falls on the roof gutters of a premises from the storm water drain to holding / storage tanks so the water can be re-used in the garden, swimming pool, to supplement the premises appliances (washing machines, dish washers, toilets etc) that use water. This reduces the amount of municipal or ground water (borehole) that needs to be used which in turn produces water cost savings & more importantly reduces the pressure on municipal (dam water) & underground water supply (if a well point or borehole is in place).
No, not at all. You use the current gutter infrastructure of the premises / home you want to collect from. You just redirect the downpipes that run into the storm water trap in the ground below into a holding / storage tank close to that down pipe. Gravity does the rest due to the fact the premises / home roof is generally above the top of the storage / holding tank.
The stored water can either be gravity fed onto the lawn or garden if you in a flat area or the use of a small pressure pump allows you to direct water into numerous areas including the feeding of your home supply.
