Rainwater harvesting systems are a must for individuals and organisations wanting to collect free water and enjoy reduced bills, but it’s crucial to keep up maintenance on them given their technical and complex nature.
In keeping with our motto of “design, supply, install and maintain”, RainCatcher offers service and maintenance solutions nationwide, carried out by our highly qualified maintenance partners or our in-house specialist teams.
Since prevention is always better than cure, we encourage commissioning and regular maintenance of any system whether it’s new or existing. Taking out a maintenance and service contract with us gives you peace of mind; problems are identified before projects are signed off, and regular pictorial reports notify you of any wear and tear, tank cleaning requirements, regulatory improvements and any other ways you can better a system’s efficiency.
A number of schools and councils count on RainCatcher’s tried and tested commissioning service to ensure they’re getting the best out of their existing rainwater harvesters. We offer a few examples below.
King’s Cross NUS
RainCatcher was called upon by King’s Cross NUS in London who wanted to ensure their rainwater harvesting system remained in good working order (case study), made up of a compact basement unit and 3,000 litre below ground tank.
Our full health checks and filter cleaning highlighted a few issues with the aging system. We actioned the necessary steps to bring the system up to required standards and King’s Cross now have an ongoing maintenance contract with us so they get the best efficiency out of their harvesting system long term.
Cowley International College
We recently carried out basic maintenance and cleaning of a 30,000 litre capacity gravity system for Cowley International College, located in St Helens, North West England (case study), and later a tank repair for issues identified during our initial visits to the school (case study).
The result – a successfully repaired, fully functional rainwater harvesting tank and another happy client.
Sunderland City Council
Sunderland City Council sought out RainCatcher to tackle a fault detected in their existing 36,000 litre rainwater harvesting system (case study). Following our site visits, recommendations and subsequent maintenance the client was pleased with the results and opted for ongoing maintenance to ensure future optimal performance.
A rainwater harvesting system can be more tricky to look after than you may think; commissioning and regular maintenance is vitally important to its lifespan. An under performing or faulty system can cost you not only money in repairs but through disruptive downtimes. Make sure the contractors you choose are the right ones.
