How Does the Whole Process of Rainwater Harvesting Work?

Rainwater can be collected and stored in concrete water tanks or any other natural reservoir for
future use, such as garden, crop and landscape irrigation, watering livestock, laundry, flushing toilets,
among several others. This process is called rainwater harvesting.
Storing harvested rainwater in concrete water tanks is beneficial, particularly in rural areas, where
there is no municipal water supply or if the available supply is not sufficient, or has poor quality.
For your water tank needs, you don’t have to look here and there to find the product that you need.
Raincycle can produce your required concrete rainwater tank, using innovative technology and we
have a range of custom-built water tanks that are suitable to your needs and you can use
conveniently, when it’s time for your rainwater harvesting.
The term is a technique that you use to collect rainwater from roofs and other surfaces of homes and
buildings and then keeping the water stored in tanks. The system is designed occurs after the site
conditions has been inspected and assessed. Some considerations in the assessment include the
rainfall pattern, incident rainfall, subsurface strata and storage characteristics. Rainwater harvesting
is popular across many countries of the world, but it is even more popular in regions that experience
droughts often, like regional Australia.

Rainwater Tank Installation

Raincycle produces water tanks of various sizes – smaller sizes, if you have a limited space in your property and larger sizes, if you have a lot of spacious area. Our tanks provide a water storage solution for your rainwater harvesting. All our concrete tanks are usually positioned underground, thus it involves the removal of soil and rocks from your site to create an open space.

Once the tank is put into place, we connect it to your home, using various pipes and fittings, making sure that our product does not leak and will not crack with pressure or any other reason.  During rainwater harvesting, we are very careful that the water that goes into the tank, is as clean as it should be. This can reduce the buildup of sludge and lessen the contaminants that need to be filtered out later.

The water tank that you choose should depend on the quantity or volume of the water that you need, the space that you have available to fit it in and your available budget. The budget should not worry you though, because getting your system set up is easy and relatively affordable. What you need is a rainwater harvesting system, one or a couple of concrete water tanks (depending on your requirements) and a fully integrated piping system, so you can access the stored water, after it has been collected.

Using harvested rainwater is an amazing method to reduce your carbon footprints and live in a way that is environmentally friendly.  Finally, you can get started, with your rainwater harvesting system now or once you’ve decided that you need it on your property.
