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.
Water Harvesting Solutions is a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and is a reputed name for rainwater harvesting for commercial buildings. As a leader in rainwater collection systems, we understand the goals and concerns of our clients interested in achieving LEED certification for their buildings, which allows us to deliver the best water retention systems.
What Is Commercial Rainwater Harvesting?
Rainwater harvesting system is becoming an inevitable part of every country's sustainable water management practices. These systems collect, store, and reuse rainfall water for later use. Rainwater harvesting systems collect rainwater from roof gutters and filter it before storing it in a tank.
With commercial buildings using a significant amount of water and energy resources each day, rainwater harvesting acts as an effective technique to conserve water and reduce the cost of utility bills annually. Collecting the rainwater during the rainy season can be beneficial for non-potable applications. It will also reduce the amount of water used from the mains.
What Are The Rainwater Harvesting Methods For Commercial Buildings?
The two main methods of rainwater harvesting are surface run-ff and rooftop harvesting. Commercial building owners prefer rooftop harvesting more. In this system, the catchment surface receives the rainfall directly and stores it in a storage tank above or below ground. The functional components of a rainwater harvesting system include a catchment, gutter, down take pipes, a distribution system, and a storage tank.
The collected rainwater then undergoes filtration and gets distributed to the point of use through a distribution system. Our rainwater harvesting systems can provide non-potable water to meet various needs of commercial building residents, such as toilet flushing, gardening, etc.
The Benefits Of Rainwater Harvesting For Commercial Buildings
Rainwater harvesting is an environmentally responsible practice that promotes self-sufficiency. Here are some of the benefits of commercial rainwater collection systems:
- It helps reduce the mains water supply by 40-50%
- It reduces the run-off and its harmful impacts
- You can now use the collected rainwater for whatever you need it. All it takes is to install a system that can harvest it and collect it into a tank for later use.
- Commercial buildings do not have to rely on imported water to meet their needs. Collecting rainwater reduces the need for imported water significantly
- Rainwater harvesting helps commercial building owners reduce peak demands during the summer. You can now choose to save treated water for more appropriate purposes and use the harvested rainwater for non-potable applications.
Not to mention, our rainwater harvesting solutions can provide you with a backup water supply for emergencies cases. It not only promotes water and energy conservation but can help you save money on the water bill in the long run.
