If you want to save water and save money there are easier and more economical ways, which with a little thought, will give you great results. Fitting water efficiency devices and learning how to be waterwise are a good way to start. We recognize that the next logical step from this is to consider the part that Water Reuse Systems can play in reducing the reliance on the public mains water supply.
Water reuse is the new term used for what used to be known as water recycling or reclaimed water. These systems aim to provide an alternative source of water that can be used in place of high quality drinking water.
The Government recently revised its technical guidance of the Building Regulations, Part G,which now allows for the use of reused water for appliances that do not need to be such high quality for them to work effectively, such as toilets, clothes washing machines and for garden use.
We have put together information pages on the two most common types of systems used in the UK, rainwater harvesting and greywater treatment, and they summarize the main considerations before a water reuse system is installed.
We provide the high quality drinking water which is vital in maintaining our customers’ health and wellbeing. To ensure there are no unnecessary risks from water reuse systems, they must be carefully designed and properly installed and maintained so users can get the greatest benefit from them.
