Benefits of rainwater harvesting
#1 Rainwater is sodium-free, important for persons on low-sodium diets.
#2 The water is free; the only cost is for collection and use.
#3 Rainwater is superior for landscape irrigation.
#4 The end use of harvested water is located close to the source, eliminating the need for complex and costly distribution systems.
#5 Rainwater provides a water source when groundwater is unacceptable or unavailable, or it can augment limited groundwater supplies.
#6 The zero hardness of rainwater helps prevent scale on appliances, extending their use; rainwater eliminates the need for a water softener and the salts added during the softening process.
#7Rainwater harvesting reduces flow to storm-water drains and also reduces non-point source pollution.
#8 Rainwater harvesting helps utilities reduce the summer demand peak and delay expansion of existing water treatment plants.
#9 Rainwater harvesting reduces consumers’ utility bills.
