Rain water harvesting is the process of capturing and storing rain and then using this stored water as a substitute for mains water. With increased demands placed on water and with shortages and higher costs, rainwater harvesting can be a very effective way of being more environmental and saving money. One of the biggest barriers to adopting a rainwater harvesting system at home is the pay back period of buying a system. (This being how many years of water savings in money terms will it take to pay for the system).

Some of the DIY chains are now starting to offer components for rain water harvesting. There are also several companies offering both components and fully installed systems. The problem with commercial systems is the cost, which can be in the range of 尰 to ర depending on how sophisticated the system is and how much work the purchaser does. This makes the pay back period on commercially available systems many years for most homes.

An alternative option is a DIY installed, budget system with a pay back period of less than 2 years for householders in areas with high water charges. It is possible to put a range of such systems together with minimal cost. The other big advantage of building your own system is that it can be fun and rewarding. You also end up with a system you fully understand, so will be able to properly maintain the system at minimal cost.
