Rainwater Harvesting involves collecting, filtering, and storing rainwater from roofs for toilet flushing, laundry, and irrigation.
By installing an Aquaco Rain Harvesting system for your home, all recycled water collected can be used in toilets, laundry, and irrigation, reducing the environmental impact of your home.
You could save 50% on water usage, which would significantly reduce your water costs.
