The water harvested is suitable for all non-potable purposes from watering the garden, washing the car, flushing the toilet and running the washing machine. In certain cases it may be possible to achieve potable (drinkable) water standard through additional treatment, to achieve this, an Additional UV filtration can be added to bring up to potable standard if this is a requirement.

If you are in a hard water area and install a rainwater harvesting system, white goods, such as your washing machine, often last longer and run more efficiently. Harvested rainwater is soft and so the machine will not build up internal limescale and shorten its lifespan. An additional benefit in hard water areas is that less detergent is required which means less pollutants released into the environment
