Water Recovery

We generally use tap water for all household tasks. However, 50% of the daily water demand of households does not require this increasingly expensive drinking water. Flushing the toilet, watering the plants, maintaining the soil, washing clothes... rainwater is more than enough.

Storage

One of the benefits of rainwater harvesting and reducing drinking water consumption is the protection of the environment. Fresh water is diminishing every year, and finding alternatives to save it is an eco-citizen gesture.

Purification

Even if rainwater is not drinkable, it can be filtered, which is a good way to increase your autonomy. However, be aware of the risks. To be drinkable, it needs to be filtered to eliminate micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses), chemical pollutants (nitrates, pesticides, heavy metals), dust, plants... some filters are necessary. Concerning tap water, it is nowadays drinkable thanks to the presence of harmful agents, but it is not pure. This is the reason why filter systems are becoming more and more popular. They improve the quality of the water we drink.

Sanitation

Collective or non-collective sanitation aims at draining and treating wastewater. Wastewater refers to black water (toilet water) and reclaimed water (water from the sink, kitchen, washing machine, etc.). It is harmful to the environment and should not be released into the environment.Collective or non-collective sanitation aims at draining and treating wastewater.
