Benefits of Rain water harvesting

Rainwater harvesting is a technique used for collecting, storing and using rainwater for landscape irrigation and other home uses. The rainwater can collected from hard surfaces such as rooftops
For a dry climate such as we have here in South India, rainwater harvesting can make a huge beneficial impact on the environment and society.

Why should we implement rainwater harvesting? rainwater harvesting will reduce water bills, provide an alternative supply 
during water restrictions and help maintain a healthy garden. In fact, depending upon tank size and climate, rainwater harvesting can reduce mains water use by 100%. Rainwater harvesting also decreases storm water runoff, thereby helping to reduce local flooding and scouring of creeks.

Some important benefits are as follow :
1. Rain water is a very clean and absolutely free source of water.
2. Reduce the costing for pumping of ground water.
3.High quality water,soft and low in minerals and not chlorinated.
2. We have total control over supply.
3. It is socially acceptable and environmentally friendly system.
4. It promotes self-sufficiency and helps to conserve natural water.

6. It reduces storm water run-off from home and buildings.
7. It uses simple technologies that are inexpensive and easy to install and maintain.
8. The system can be easily retro fitted to an existing structure or built during new home/building construction.
9. It can provide an excellent backup source of water for future.
10. System are very flexible and can be modular in nature, allowing expansion, reconfiguration.
