With soaring household bills and the realisation that making homes more energy efficient could help to significantly boost the sluggish housing market, self builders and national house builders are fast realising the benefits of installing Wavin’s range of Rainwater Re-Use Systems.

To meet this growing demand, Wavin – the leading supplier of water management and drainage systems – has extended its offering with a new range of Rainwater Re-Use Systems available in 2, 3, and even 4,000 litre capacities which can save up to 50% in water consumption.

The Rainwater Re-Use Systems bring a significant reduction in the use of water within the home, making an important contribution towards achieving the needs of Category 2 in the Code for Sustainable Homes and ensuring house builders are adhering to the Government scheme.

The lightweight, robust polyethylene units are easy to install, use and maintain. Integrating easily with Wavin’s total rainwater and drainage solutions, the Rainwater Re-Use Systems are also virtually silent in operation. They have been designed so that the tanks can be connected together to increase overall capacity for larger domestic properties or small commercial outlets, if required.

Steve Skeldon, Product Group Manager at Wavin comments: “Astonishingly, flushing the toilet accounts for the single largest amount of water used in a typical household. Both financially and environmentally it makes sense to re-use rainwater for such tasks. Our new extended range of above and below ground Rainwater Re-Use Systems will provide house builders with a range of products to meet Government legislation and the growing demand from UK consumers to invest in sustainable technologies.”

Wavin’s underground units are suitable for non-potable domestic and/or garden irrigation, providing harvested rainwater for toilet flushing, laundry, garden use and car washing.

Above ground storage units are available for garden irrigation and car washing, and include a polyethylene cylinder 1,400 litre tank alongside the existing above ground 750 litre wall tank, in a choice of black or green to complement the property. The pump-ready connections and lightweight tanks are well suited for retro-fitting, minimising disruption to the property.

The tanks are designed for storing harvested water and are equipped with a range of filter options to achieve and retain excellent water quality with the minimum of maintenance.
