Rainwater Harvesting. Supply from the Sky.
All good things come from above. Rainwater is a gift from the sky, free of salt and other minerals, that might harm the plants. In large scale as well as small gardens it therefore makes sense to collect water. This manual gives all the needed information for a simple harvesting system as well as the more complex ones. How do you find a balance between water supply, demand and storage?
Here, each element of the system is introduced and explained, may it be the catchments, conveyance, storage in pools or tanks or at last the distribution with a pump or simply gravity. From the first site analysis, over calculations to the final design, the manual guides you through everything you need to know for harvesting rainwater… and what exactly is evapotranspiration?
