Delivering Sustainable Water

Agricultural

Rainwater Harvesting has a natural affinity with agricultural practices, with water being such an essential resource to farmers and growers.

KingspanWater offers RWH systems and components to suit all needs and budgets. Systems can be created by diverting the water that runs down farm building’s gutters into a storage tank or water butt.

Alternatively, it could be more complex involving pumped storage, filters and UV treatment for use on ready-to-eat crops.

The range of systems we offer is broad, but the uses for the harvested water is far wider, including :

  • Plant nurseries
  • Field irrigation
  • Buildings and farmyard cleaning
  • Toilet flushing
  • Machinery cleaning
  • Filter backwashing
  • Cleaning of equipment or process cleaning
  • Sprayer wash out
Irrigation

Rainwater Harvesting offer growers a supply of soft clean water – free from the treatment chemicals found in mains water such as chlorine.

It is also a free resource – a major consideration for commercial growers looking to reduce production overheads.

For growers using covered structures, polytunnels or greenhouses, the catchment potential of the structures is considerable and adaption minimal. The incorporation of adequate guttering is a pre-requisite, plus allocated space for above-ground or below ground water storage tanks.
