Water Harvesting Solutions
Commercial buildings can save millions of gallons of potable water each year by harvesting rainwater, greywater, stormwater, and condensate for non-potable applications such as toilet flushing, irrigation, and cooling tower make-up. Wahaso provides complete design/build water harvesting solutions services, consulting with engineers to determine the best strategy for a project and fabricating a fully integrated system.
Does the country have enough potential to tap rainwater? Data suggests that collecting up to 70% of all rainwater will result in enough water to replace a considerable portion of the municipal water in all households. We live in times when the authorities are aware of the need for additional water sources and have taken a proactive approach to reducing water scarcity problems at individual and community levels.
Water scarcity is exacerbated when a region lacks water to cover all of the area’s needs. Many things could pain this scenario, such as a rapidly rising population, changes in weather, and a massive project that needs multiple water sources.
Harvesting water during the rainy seasons is a smart way of preparing for these lessons to ensure enough water is going around for all relevant functions. The best commercial project managers will prepare components of a rainwater harvesting system in advance and ensure that everything is running as per the quota, so they never run into problems in the future.
Tips Of Choosing The Best Systems From Rainwater Harvesting Companies
Determine The Amount Of Water We Can Collect
Harvesting rainwater is not simple when you have to cover many different projects, and the extent of the project depends a lot on how much water you will need. These details will help choose the surface area from which to collect the water, the size of the storage tanks, and how best to ensure we are taking advantage of the rainfall distribution pattern in the year.
Choosing The Layout
What is the best location and layout of the rainwater harvesting tank? Some systems could work with a spread-out tank, while others work perfectly fine when we put together the tanks in a cluster. We must divert the water from the rooftop through the path of least resistance to collect as much water as possible and keep up with the different requirements for water pressure and volume. Some things that we install throughout the rainwater harvesting systems layout include:
- A mesh filter
- Filtration system
- Air gap to prevent the water from flowing back
- Diverters flush off the water from the first showers because they contain more contaminants and toxins.
- First rain separators to clean the silt and material deposited during the dry seasons
- A UV filter for drinking water
- Pumps to distribute the water to various tanks
Choosing The Right Tanks And Pipes To Install
There are a couple of things you must look into to choose the suitable pipes and tanks for the property. The first is to lay the groundwork for these features and then use connectors to link all the different units into one seamless system.
All the rainwater harvesting solutions should be the correct size because a marginally oversized unit will affect the pressure negatively. You also need a control system to gauge all the different water levels and systems, so you know that everything is working as it should at all times.
What if we told you that Wahaso has all these systems of knowing what to install before we begin the process and trackers to monitor the finished project.
