According to the above headline in Garden Trade News, The Old Railway Line Garden Centre is aiming to reduce its water bills by 60% using 4 rainwater storage tanks with a combined capacity of 10,000 litres.
Stories such as these underline the potential for Garden Centres and Nurseries to slash their water bills and reduce their environmental footprint at the same time. Glasshouses and buildings all provide plenty of potential to catch large amounts or rainwater, and above ground galvanised storage tanks provide large tank capacities at an economical cost.
Access Irrigation have many years’ experience in designing and supplying rainwater catchment systems. Tanks can either be above ground or underground, and depending on the site layout, water can either fill the tanks by gravity or be pumped from catchment sumps to more remote tank locations.
During dry spells the tanks can be topped up automatically from the mains water supply.
