Hiring a tradesman for rainwater harvesting system installation
Rainwater harvesting systems are a popular and environmentally friendly way of sourcing water, and are becoming increasingly popular in drier areas.

What do you need to know about rainwater harvesting system installation?
You can have a bespoke fit catered to your home or business, which involves a consideration of your roof water takings, current and foreseeable water consumption as well as ground work criteria. The first step is to explore whether there is the space to have an underground tank, which is beneficial because they can keep the water fresher for longer. Your local professional will assess what size tank is most suitable, both in terms of physicality and water capacity, as well for what purpose you want to harvest the water. This could include toilet flushing, gardening, washing machines, drinking or anything else.
There can be potential complications for installing a rainwater harvesting system. You may have to replace your roof's gutters to channel rainwater to the system, as well as new piping to send the water where it needs to go. If your property is suitable for an underground water tank then your tradesman will need to excavate the space. This will usually require them to hire a digger.
The cost of having a rainwater harvesting system installed will depend on the complexity of the system and the amount of work necessary to make your property suitable. You could simply purchase a free standing container to collect rainwater: this can cost around £80. A fully working system featuring purification capabilities and piping into your home could cost between £2000 and £3000, excluding the cost of installation. Have a solid idea of what you want to collect the rainwater for and discuss this with your tradesman. They will be able to recommend a system for you, and an appropriate budget. Remember to collect multiple quotes to compare.
Remember to check the qualifications and experience of a tradesman before making a hire, and be sure that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities. They should also offer a guarantee in case their work is incorrectly done or if there are issues with your system in the near future.
