Why adhere to WRAS guidance on labelling for Rainwater Harvesting?
Rainwater is being collected day-to-day worldwide, reducing water demand and being reused for handy applications which do not require wholesome water, such as doing the laundry, flushing the toilet and watering the garden.
This information sheet issued by WRAS, the UK Water Regulations Advisory Scheme that strives to protect public health with regards to water supplies, contains important guidance on labelling for Rainwater Harvesting.
So why should you adhere to said guidance?
Reason No. 1 – Rainwater is classed as category 5 water (full list of categories here) and as such should not be used directly into a building where that water can be ingested. The labelling regulations ensure that the water does not, under any circumstances, come into contact with the wholesome domestic drinking water supply.
