Rainwater Harvesting Solutions: What You Need To Know

Rainwater Harvesting Solutions What You Need To Know

Are you facing water-related problems? Do you have any idea about the water situation in our country? We are facing the worst condition of water management that leads to water scarcity in many states. With only 4% of water resources, we have to manage 18% of the world’s population which makes us the most water-stressed country. The situation is getting worse due to the overuse of groundwater. And, we will face a critical water situation in the next 20 years. That’s why we need effective solutions such as rainwater harvesting to tackle the situation precisely.

Rainwater Harvesting: A Promising Solution to Water Crisis

Data reveals that various Indian states are in critical condition due to the lack of water. People find it difficult to access fresh water for drinking and depend on tankers to meet their day-to-day water requirements. To address the water requirements smartly, a rainwater harvesting system is the best solution.

Rainwater Harvesting System

Rainwater harvesting is all about collecting the run-off water from a structure or other waterproof surface to store it for future use. In the method of rainwater harvesting, various instruments are used to collect and store rainwater with proper techniques. Certain advantages of rainwater harvesting simplify your living by reducing the water bill, decreasing the demand for water, improving the quality of groundwater, and more. So, it is good to think about the installation of a rainwater harvesting system in your area.

Ways of Rainwater Harvesting System

There are two major techniques used to harvest rainwater efficiently:

Surface runoff harvesting

In this method, rainwater is collected and stored on surfaces like roads or pavements. Through the development of surface runoff harvesting systems, we don’t allow water to flow into drainage systems or natural water bodies as it is captured and stored. The stored water can be used for multiple purposes like irrigation, groundwater recharge, and non-potable uses such as toilet flushing or landscaping.

For the management and utilisation of water, certain components are used including downspouts, gutters, storage tanks, distribution systems, and filters. With surface runoff harvesting, you can conserve water resources, diminish stormwater runoff pollution, and acknowledge the consequences of water scarcity.

Rooftop Rainwater Harvesting

In rooftop rainwater harvesting, we design a system to collect rainwater that falls on rooftops and store it for various purposes. The process allows us to capture rainwater from rooftops and direct it to storage tanks or recharge structures for later use.

The fundamental components used in the system are catchment surface (rooftop), gutters and downspouts, first flush diverters, storage tanks, filtration or treatment system and distribution system.

You can supplement water supply to manage water shortages by installing rooftop rainwater harvesting systems. The system also helps to mitigate stormwater runoff and reduce urban flooding.

Programmes to Tackle Water Scarcity In India

Atal Bhujal Yojana is the world’s largest community-led groundwater management program that aims to improve groundwater water management. With this program, the Indian government is helping to improve rural livelihoods and build resilience in 7 states with the highest rates of groundwater depletion.

From 2006 to 2015, the World Bank supported Uttarakhand Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Project and helped more than 1.57 million people in the state. The project was aimed at the improvement of sustainable rural water supply and sanitation services across underserved areas.

There are different programs run parallelly to improve the water supply in different areas of the country.

Retas: Making Rainwater Harvesting System Easy To Install

To tackle the situation of water scarcity, we need to use our natural resources wisely such as rainwater harvesting. That’s why we provide modular rainwater harvesting solutions to use the rainwater properly. We allow people to use rain water when there is no monsoon or during water scarcity. Before diving deeper into the concept of a modular rainwater harvesting system, we should know the advantages of modular technology:

Benefits of modular technology:

  • It can be quickly installed and created in any size or shape.
  • It has a strong structure design and does not require a free board area.
  • Installing a modular rainwater harvesting system is a cost-effective solution.
  • You can use the top surface for different purposes.
  • It can work with negligible maintenance.
  • It is easy to handle and can be assembled using a combination of large and small plates.
  • The system has connectors, providing better strength and stability.
  • The system is eco-friendly as it is made of 100% recycled PP material and produces less CO2 emission.
  • It has a strong structural design and can be installed in landscaped areas, driveways, and car parking with a load capacity of up to 40 Tonnes/Sqm.

Rainmaxx Tank

We create RAINMAXX® modular tanks out of 100 % recycled material. The tank is used as a catchment system to collect, infiltrate, and store rainwater underground. It is made of virgin polyethene and other materials that include fibreglass, stainless steel, concrete, galvanised steel, and plastic (polyethene). These materials are rust and chemical-resistant.

  • We use high-quality Geotextile Sheets to wrap and save the tank from heat.
  • To keep the tank clean and maintenance-free, we also use FRP-based filtration technology housed in the inlet.
  • The system is designed and constructed from interconnected modules so it can hold any amount of water. It also controls stormwater.

Our engineers can build load-bearing empty spaces for underground water storage tanks with modular technology.
