How to do rainwater harvesting?

Water is more than just a commodity. The entire existence of the world depends on this invaluable resource. The sooner we learn and accept this fact, the better we will fare. In such times, when the water level is going down rapidly, it is the need of the hour to save it and replenish every drop that we can. Following are the benefits and simple techniques of rainwater harvesting and how it can save our drying reservoirs.

Ecofriendly – Rainwater harvesting is an excellent eco-friendly way to recharge underground aquifers and maintain water levels. It can be introduced in the houses, apartments or buildings. All it needs is a provision of little outdoor space to fit a rainwater catchment system to collect rainwater. The harvested water can be stored and used for various non-potable errands like irrigation and cleaning.

Budget-friendly – Rainwater harvesting is a pretty low-priced arrangement that does not require much investment. It takes a few thousand rupees to install a basic functioning rainwater harvesting system, and one can reap the benefits of this collected rainwater worth much more than that. It is an amazing way to lend a helping hand to the ecosystem. The rainwater can be stored in water tanks as well as in the borewell. 

Rain barrel method – A rain barrel is probably the easiest way of harvesting rainwater. It is a rooftop rainwater collection technique where the water from roofs of houses and buildings is collected and directed to the recharge pits via drains pipes. These pits are small chambers dug in the ground. The pits contain wire mesh to filter any foliage or debris and are kept uncemented so that collected rainwater can seep into the earth quickly. The rainwater is filtered inside the chambers and ported into the soil to replenish the underwater aquifers.

Harvesting rainwater in borewell – Harvesting rainwater and storing it into borewells is a relatively new concept. It is an excellent way to recharge borewells. This technique operates on a sand filter. A pit is filled with boulders, stones, sand, and charcoal. A casing pipe is connected to the netted holes of the sandpit on one end, and the other end is attached to the borewell. When rainwater or runoff water from canals and fields fall into the sandpit, the filtration process begins. Step by step suspended debris is separated from the rainwater. The leftover purified water goes into the casing pipe, which releases it inside the borewell. Kasta pipes are trusted by experts for producing durable, noncorrosive, rot-free, bio growth resistant pipes and fixtures. They fit perfectly well in all every basic and advanced rainwater harvesting system and enhance their performance. Kasta pipes are an economical alternative for the rainwater harvesting pipelines.
