Sometimes it is very frustrating for a company who can provide a solution to a problem that is on the horizon. There is always talk of potential water shortages in the future due to the growing population and the limited access to natural water source for the Water Companies.
It is great to see that Thames Water are acknowledging the impact that installing a Rainwater Harvesting System into your new build can have and are offering an incentive to do this.
With the ability to save up to 50% of your household water usage not only do you the homeowner save on your future metered water bills but you will also be helping the future of drinking water supply for the next generation.
