Aquaco are world leaders in the design, development, and manufacture of rainwater harvesting solutions. We specialise in harvesting and attenuation. All our rainwater systems can be seamlessly integrated into our MBR Greywater systems for a full water recycling solution.
We are member of the UKRMA, where our Head of Engineering, William Shearer is a Director. Helping to guide the organisation’s efforts to bring legislation and government funding and grants to end-users and installer of water recycling systems.
With the UK aiming to hit Carbon net-zero in 2050. We need to all work together to minimise our carbon footprint and environmental impact.
Rainwater harvesting has significant carbon savings over mains water. For example the recent Ricardo Report ( ED 13617100 | Issue number 1 | Date 04 September 2020 ), it states that a medium-sized system can save up to 209 tonnes of CO2 per year with high demand, such as an office block, hotel, or apartment block.
With the cost of water becoming increasingly more expensive, reducing your water usage by harvesting rainwater and using on WC flushing, irrigation and washdown can significantly reduce your water bills.
From the same report as above, a medium-sized rainwater system with significant usage will save on average £11,930 – £13,448 per year.
Rainwater harvesting offers an effective method of gaining valuable BREEAM points. Aquaco can offer you all your sizing and calculations to make this process as easy as possible.
