9 Ways to Use Harvested Rainwater

22 May

In today's world, we use a wide range of products. With the advancement of technology, human needs have expanded and increased. In this regard, there has been an increase and development in both individual and corporate water tank usage. Therefore, while storage products can be produced in various sizes up to 100 tons, they are manufactured with many different designs. When we look at the individual and corporate use of storage products, rainwater harvesting holds an important place. Rainwater harvesting is practiced in many countries, especially in Europe. In the event of a possible water shortage due to the growing economy and increasing population, these harvesting systems will be crucial and widely used.
Setting up the systems required for rainwater harvesting is quite easy. Three components are needed for the installation of these systems: a rainwater collection area, a channel to transport the rainwater, and a storage product for storing the rainwater. With these three components, you can start harvesting rainwater. Now, let's explore the 9 areas where harvested rainwater can be used, which we have examined and compiled in this article for our readers.

1.  For Plant Irrigation:

Agriculture is the sector where water is most widely used worldwide. Users can use the water obtained through rain for agricultural irrigation, while those with small gardens can provide water for their small-scale gardens. People with small gardens may need to allocate a significant budget for watering their plants. By using storage products in rainwater harvesting systems, you can minimize your irrigation costs.

2.  For Cleaning Purposes:

The collected water in rainwater harvesting systems can be used for cleaning purposes. You can use it to clean areas such as barns or, in its simplest form, balconies and terraces. This way, you contribute to water conservation. It is important to save water in any case, considering the possibility of water scarcity in the future.

3.  For Drinking Water:

Did you know that you can use the water obtained through rainwater harvesting as drinking water? We do not recommend directly consuming water from these systems, but if you pass it through a fine purification device, it can be suitable for drinking. Additionally, to prevent foreign objects from entering your rainwater harvesting tank, you can install a thick, porous filter on the tank's lid.

4.  For Drip Irrigation Systems:

Agriculture and livestock are the sectors where water is most extensively used worldwide. The most used storage products in rainwater harvesting systems are polyethylene 2 ton water tanks. This is because storage products made of polyethylene are more cost-effective compared to others. The main reason for this is the mass production of storage products made of polyethylene. Since water is one of the major expenses in agriculture, rainwater harvesting systems are highly effective in reducing this cost. If you are involved in agriculture, it is essential to set up a rainwater harvesting system.

5.  For Washing Fruits and Vegetables:

When washing fruits and vegetables, we often waste liters of water. However, if the stored rainwater is properly treated, it can be effectively used for this purpose. There are various ways to effectively use rainwater for washing fruits and vegetables. You can wash them using the water collected in your rainwater harvesting system, thereby saving water on your utility bill.

6.  For Laundry:

You can also use the water obtained through rainwater harvesting for your washing machine or for handwashing clothes. Similarly, if you have a dishwasher that uses water, you can wash your clothes using rainwater. It is important to have a filter on your storage tank to prevent foreign objects from entering the tank from the roof or rain collection area. We don't want such things to happen, so a filter is essential.

7.  For Extra Usage:

Rainwater harvesting systems provide an additional water source, as their main purpose is to supplement your water needs. While they may not meet all your water requirements, they offer an extra source of water. If you live in an area with heavy rainfall, it can even meet a significant portion of your water needs. It is important not to underestimate the potential of these systems. All you need to do is acquire a storage product to set up the system.

8.  For Areas without Access to Centralized Water Supply:

In our country, storage products are commonly used in rural areas, as some regions cannot receive resources such as water and electricity due to cadastral reasons. As a result, people living in these rural areas use storage products to meet their water needs. There are a wide variety of storage products available for such areas.
