Agricultural Rainwater Harvesting Systems

Agricultural Rainwater Harvesting Systems

Systems available from 10,000 litres to 25,000 litres

These extra large water tanks are rotationally moulded from a one piece mould for strength and durability.These tanks can also be interlinked to create a larger volume.

Each tank has integrated lifting eyes allow for easy manoeuvring and all our tanks are compatible with UK standard 4" (110mm) pipe fittings. As the manufacturers of the Ecosure range, we are able to offer some alterations appropriate to our customer's specification, for example when larger outlets are required.

About Agricultural Rainwater Harvesting

About Agricultural Rainwater Harvesting

Water is essential for farming but often is taken for granted. Yet in many parts of England and Wales water resources are already scarce and are likely to become even scarcer as a result of climate change. Rainwater harvesting has economic and environmental benefits.

  • Charges for mains water are expected to rise. Using collected rainwater could reduce this expenditure. Reducing mains water use will also ensure that additional savings can be made on sewage discharge.
  • Harvesting and using rainwater can reduce the quantity of water entering slurry stores, running across fouled yards, or entering dirty water tanks. This can mean a reduction in slurry store size and reduced amounts of dirty water to dispose of, resulting in cost savings.
  • Because rainwater does not contain treatment additives such as chlorine, it is considered to be better for irrigation. It is also better than mains water for spraying some crop protection products.
  • Rainwater harvesting can reduce dependence on rivers and groundwater sources - now under threat from an increasing population. It can also reduce the risk of localised flooding where water from large roof areas is not managed correctly.
  • Some farm assurance schemes actively encourage the use of rainwater harvesting.

Large Rainwater Tank

Fitting a Partfill Valve will ensure that you never run out of water when there is little or no rainfall. The Partfill Valve is a high flow valve which will automatically use mains water to maintain a set level of water in your tank.

Rainwater Pipe

Rainwater Pipe

This system comes with 25m of 25mm Rainwater Harvesting Pipe. This pipe can be easily identified be the Green strip running down Black pipe. This pipe must be used under the Water Regulations.
