Domestic Rainwater Recycling in the Home

Domestic Rainwater Recycling and Harvesting involves collecting, filtering, and storing rainwater from roofs for toilet flushing, laundry, and irrigation.

By installing an Aquaco residential rainwater recycling system to your home, all recycled water collected can be used in toilets, laundry and irrigation, reducing the environmental impact of your home.

One of our systems could reduce your water bill by up to 50%*

The Aquaco Home residential rainwater recycling direct and indirect system comes in a range of sizes, the best way to determine which system will meet your requirements best is by clicking on the system sizing calculator on the right. We determine the system size based on the British Standard recommendation.

The direct system supplies water at pressure to the source you require for example external garden tap or washing machine.

* Based on an average water-conscious household that showers instead of bathes. 

Aquaco Rainwater Basic at Home

The Aquaco Home Rainwater Basic is from the residential rainwater recycling range. It comes in two variants; Indirect and Direct. The Home Rainwater Basic collects water from your roof, then filters and stores the water for reuse in WC flushing, irrigation, and washing machines.

  • Indirect; underground tank. stored water is treated and pumped to a header tank for gravity feeding the appliances. The mains water backup is in the header tank.
  •  Direct; underground tank. The mains water backup enters the underground tank. Water is pumped directly to the point of use. A control board is installed in a frost-protected area.
