With increasing utility bills, now is the right time to become more “water efficient“; thinking more about the way we use water and reducing waste wherever possible. This is how you could be Reducing Water Costs with Rainwater Harvesting Systems.

Reduce Water Costs / Save Money with Rainwater Harvesting Systems

 

Reducing water bills and saving money can become a reality with the GutterMate Rainwater Harvesting System.

Each person in the UK uses 150 litres of water a day. This includes cooking, cleaning, washing and flushing. About a third of this is wasted; it runs down the plughole or is flushed away without being used.

During the hotter, drier months, water used outdoors can amount to 50% of the UK’s daily usage.

These figures have increased year on year by at least 1%, and we are now using 70% more water than we did 40 years ago.

Using collected rainwater through rainwater harvesting systems to wash your car and windows and/or water your lawn and plants will result in substantial savings on your metered water bills.

Think about how much you could save by recycling rainwater for these everyday chores:

  • Watering the Garden using a Watering Can: 7-9 litres per full can
  • Watering the Garden using a Hose: up to 18 litres per minute
  • Watering the Garden using a Sprinkler: up 1,000 litres per hour
  • Washing your Car using a Bucket: approximately 15 litres
  • Washing your Car using a Hose: 540 litres per hour
