Hydro releases design guide for rainwater recycling
CLEVEDON, UK, July 24, 2009 -- Hydro International has released its new Design Guide for their StormBank and StormBank Pro systems...
Recycling rainwater for non-potable use in toilet flushing, vehicle washing, garden or yard watering could provide up to 50% of daily household needs, and 30 to 40% of commercial or office requirements. Payback on reduced mains water usage charges can be within a few years, especially for commercial systems. Rainwater recycling also helps reduce flood risk as it slows the discharge of rainwater to drainage.
The Hydro StormBank® Design Guide explores the issues behind recycling, including the shortage of water in the UK, climate change and the Save The Rain™ campaign initiative with its objective of making rainwater harvesting compulsory on all new build in the UK.
The StormBank® Design Guide gives information on potential water usage, rainfall and system sizing, looks at siting and installing the tank and connection to the building plumbing; it also covers garden and outdoor only usage guidelines, as well as commercial systems. The guide gives the user full hands-on guidance on the operation of the system, and the minimal maintenance requirements.
Hydro International, which has offices in the UK, USA and Ireland, provides cost-effective solutions for controlling the quantity and improving the quality of water, without power or moving parts, and with minimal maintenance.
