This involves trapping rainwater from rooftops and other hard surfaces such as pavements and concrete slabs. This water is stored in tanks and can later be used for various purposes. Rainbow Reservoirs is the best place to visit for any advice related to this issue.

Significance of Rainwater Harvesting

In areas that are characterised by erratic water supplies, it can be seen that rainwater harvesting can provide a lasting solution depending on the storage capacity of the reservoir tanks used. Water is life and there is every need to store it in a safe place especially in areas where shortages of this precious commodity are often experienced. Apart from incurring installation costs of the reservoir tanks meant to store rainwater harvested from rooftops, it can be observed that there are no any other expenses incurred later on. Absolutely no headache for monthly water bills!

Rainwater harvesting is ideal for people living in both rural and urban areas. In remote areas where people mainly rely on shallow wells and boreholes that may run dry during summer periods, rainwater harvesting would be a good thing to do. The water harvested from roof tops and stored large plastic reservoir tanks can be used in time of need. This water can be used for domestic purposes and small scale farming activities can also be sustained by this precious commodity. Businesses as well can also use rainwater harvested from building rooftops.
