Leaves, flowers, berries and other vegetation in your gutters, downpipes and tanks can reduce the quality and quantity of your rainwater and even damage your Rain Harvesting system.
Compounds, chemicals, micro-organisms from animal by-products, rotting leaves and decomposing animals can contaminate your rainwater.
Sunlight, insects, animals, groundwater and dirty stormwater are all unwelcome “intruders” that can reduce your rainwater quality.
Without proper precautions, the hidden natural and mechanical processes that occur in your tanks and pipes can affect the health of your rainwater.
Weather patterns and the average rainfall for your area are important considerations when designing your Rain Harvesting system.
