The end of summer is certainly not a time when drought is on anyone’s mind! However, with the autumn just beginning, now is the perfect time to begin harvesting the inevitable torrents of rainwater that will fall over the coming seasons, meaning that you will have a near-inexhaustible supply during the next dry period.

Rainwater harvesting, albeit on a small scale, is common amongst many gardeners. Twistfix are proud to present our quality Harvesting Tanks which, quick, easy and cost-effective to install, can offer a capacity of more than 3,700 litres of stored water to use at your convenience, far excelling the standard barrels and other such containers currently used.

Aside from the obvious environmental benefits achieved by harvesting rainwater, there is also a great financial benefit. During an average year, dependent on location, the roof of a property will be subject to a deluge of in excess of 80,000 litres of rainwater. When it is considered that, an average session of using a garden sprinkler or hose uses approximately 150 litres of water at a cost of around 30p, the value of the rainwater that currently washes away into the gutters becomes plainly evident.

By collecting and storing rainwater, that precious commodity, any necessary washing and plant/lawn watering jobs can be completed with ease in any season regardless of the weather. From cleaning greenhouses and patios to filling ponds, the uses of your massive store of water are endless.

Twistfix Rainwater Harvesting Tanks are fully-automated rainwater recycling solutions comprising a strong, securely-lockable polyethylene tank, integral debris filters and an array of connections to facilitate the attachment of hosepipes or existing solid pipework. A powerful and fully-submersible pump completes the innovative and cost-effective design.

Rainwater harvesting is the accumulation and deposition of rainwater for reuse before it reaches the aquifer Uses include water for garden, water for livestock, water for irrigation, and indoor heating for houses etc. In many places the water collected is just redirected to a deep pit with percolation. The harvested water can be used as drinking water as well as for storage and other purpose like irrigation.
