Rainwater harvesting system solely focuses on conservation of water and energy. An apartment with the same installed in it promotes eco-friendly living and make its residents a part of it to act more responsibly. Through rainwater harvesting you can reduce water consumption by at least 40% which can be efficiently utilised for other purposes.

Rainwater harvesting is also linked to eco-friendly and greener living with its utilisation in watering plants and garden. This not only cuts off the overall landscaping and maintenance charges but also adds the much required touch of greenery to your apartment.
2. Non-interrupted water supply
Say goodbye to water shortages and interrupted supply with the introduction of rainwater harvesting system in apartments. It is an ideal choice as a water source or as a backup water supply during times of water shortage or when its quality is unacceptable. Especially during summer seasons when there are probable chances for water scarcity, the saved water from the system can be utilized to ensure uninterrupted water supply to apartments. Even during situations like supply cuts from the water authority, this system provides 24x7 supply without depending on any fixed timing schedule.
