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.
When did society start collecting water? There is nothing more primitive than the practice of collecting water from all sorts of healthy sources, including the rain. Harvesting rainwater is not as ordinary as a couple of decades ago when people used cisterns to harvest water for farm animals.
Water is a continuous need for society, and people are always looking for ways to collect and store it for household or commercial use.
Everything About Harvesting Rainwater
What Is Rainwater Harvesting?
It is the practice of collecting water that runs off surfaces by storing it in a catchment below for future projects. There are more than a couple of ways to collect rainwater, including simple ways like using a barrel or more complicated ways with modern rainwater collecting systems.
An idea is still a viable option today, so you can trust that technology will evolve to make the water safer and easier to collect. The following guide is not about collecting water with barrels but with advanced systems designed for large-scale applications.
The Wahaso system has an extensive production capability and is best installed in commercial projects or large residential water supply systems. We were hoping you could learn a few couples of things about it, so you know what to expect and whether it will be worth your investment.
FAQ On The Rainwater Harvesting System
How Safe Is The Water?
Harvesting rainwater is safe and healthy when using a properly designed harvesting system. So many families in the US could do better with fresher and cleaner water sources than the municipal water supply system.
Our commercial rainwater collection system has a design that works seamlessly to collect water from the rooftop, clean it out, and sanitize it, safe for human contact.
What Is The Comparison Between The Municipal Water Supply And Our Rainwater Harvesting System?
People are switching to the Wahaso rainwater harvesting system because they appreciate the technology that produces better water quality with minimal organic, inorganic, and chemical toxins. Rainwater is not free of contaminants, but it is safer than the water circulating all kinds of channels and systems around the country. Our firm is constantly looking for ways to make the water fresher by introducing new technologies and elements to elevate water quality.
Can We Maintain The Quality Of The Rainwater?
Rainwater harvesting solutions are not worthwhile if they cannot keep odor-free and slime-free water in the storage. The brilliance of our system is to maintain a level of cleanliness at all stages of water purification by removing debris, dirt, and contaminants that come along during extensive storage durations.
What Happens When You Go Away On Vacation?
The process of harvesting rainwater is different because you cannot turn it off as you would a tap when you leave home for a couple of weeks. The solution allows the excess water to exit the storage through the overflow channel so fresh and oxygenated water can enter.
Harvesting rainwater is a legal practice, and we encourage clients to consider it if they want fresher water to support better health and household activities.
