As our supply of freshwater diminishes and the drinking water infrastructure in the US continues to degrade, the cost of water is inevitably increasing. According to an annual study from Bluefield Research, water and wastewater bills have already increased an average of 30% in the United States in under 10 years. This spike in price hits businesses especially hard due to their increased water usage and demand. One of the most practical solutions to this problem is investing in a commercial rainwater management system. Collecting and reusing rainwater enables you to circumvent municipal water systems, is a reliable source of freshwater, and has a myriad of commercial applications. Utilizing rainwater also promotes environmental stewardship by reducing potable water demands for non-potable needs and reducing stormwater runoff.
COMMERCIAL RAINWATER HARVESTING USES
Rainwater management systems enable businesses and residences to collect and reuse rainwater in the majority of places where municipal freshwater is used, drastically decreasing water bill. From water features to toilet flushing, below are some of the most popular applications for rainwater use/reuse:
- Cooling tower make-up water
- Toilet flushes
- Fire suppression
- Manufacturing processes
- Vehicle/Fleet washes
- Pool fills/water features
- Potable water (depending on local jurisdiction and regulations)
