Large roof areas, a high water demand, and grants available for farmers and growers, mean reusing rainwater for agricultural purposes makes good common sense and is potentially very cost saving. Being naturally soft, clean filtered rainwater is better for many crops and is often preferred by livestock over chlorinated mains water. On farms, rainwater can be used to provide drinking water for livestock, washing down machinery and yards etc. Glasshouses and poly-tunnels provide an ideal collecting surface and the crops grown within will benefit greatly from natural rainwater.

Systems can be as simple as an above ground tank collecting water off a roof area to supply gravity-fed troughs or crops, to a professional rainwater harvesting system with a large underground tank and pumps to distribute the collected water to where it is needed.

A further benefit is that many of our products are listed on the Water Technologies List so are eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowance.

Water Quality:

To ensure water quality is kept high (especially with above ground tanks which warm up) it is also important that the oxygen level of the water is high (this drops in warm water and is the reason for water smelling more in the summer).

Filters that have fine filtration and oxygenating properties are at the heart of a good agricultural rainwater harvesting system; the small investment in a better filter ensures a system is robust and operational during usage.

For Agricultural Systems, the WISY VORTEX Filter is the filter of choice because it meets the criteria perfectly and can be fitted to the outside of a building.
