Rain Water Harvesting
Enviro Concepts is focused on water conservation through rain water harvesting. Rainwater harvesting is the process of collecting rainwater from impervious surfaces and directing it to a single location where it can be stored for later use. Rainwater harvesting increases self-sufficiency regardless of setting. We offer a collection of systems for flexible installation into existing structures.
Water collected from a properly designed and installed rainwater pre-filtration and storage system requires no further treatment for uses such as irrigation. When treated with high intensity ultraviolet sterilizers, rain water can be used to drink.
Enviro Concepts offers a range of products to help you with your rain water harvesting activities. Water treatment and sterilization is necessary to make rainwater ready for use. Treating rainwater before use and after storage is critical for the health of the user. The intended use of the water depends on the level of treatment it is to be taken through. EnviroConcepts utilizes Multi-barrier approaches to treatment so as to maximize effectiveness.
Various levels of filtration are utilized to remove suspended and dissolved solids, microorganisms, precipitated metals, and organic matter. Enviro Concepts filtration range includes particle filtration (i.e. microfiltration cartridges, multimedia deep bed filtration), ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis. Filter media, cartridges and modules should be changed regularly to ensure efficient performance.
Disinfection destroys microbiological organisms that have the potential to cause illness. Smaller microorganisms that pass through filters can be targeted through disinfection. Though rainwater appears clean to the naked eye, it is pathogen rich and can cause sickness and infection when it comes into contact with open wounds or even ingested.
Enviro Concepts offers several disinfection options for rain water harvesting. These methods are:
This is an excellent water treatment solution for rainwater that will be stored for later use or for treated water that will be distributed in a pipe network.
Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation
UV radiation eliminates close to 100% of the microorganism present in the rainwater. Ideal for treated water that will be immediately used.
Unlike chlorination and UV, adsorption filters does not eliminate or kill the microorganism instead the microorganisms and other contaminants bind and accumulate at the surface of the activated carbon media. Ideal alternative to chlorination if presence of residual chlorine in the final treated water is prohibited.
Rainwater harvesting is an easy way for businesses to reduce operating costs. EnviroConcepts provides a range of packaged rain water harvesting systems that are portable, easy to use and cost effective.
