The simplest and most efficient way to harvest rainwater from your shed.
When running a farming business in the harsh rural Australian conditions, it is vital to make the most of renewable and affordable water supplies. Whilst you may have access to some water on your property, you may find that the surface area available for harvesting via your sheds is underutilised. So, what is the simplest and most efficient way to harvest rainwater from your shed? The answer to this frequently asked question is tapered gutters.
Tapered gutters work in such a way that, even with harsh wind conditions, water harvesting is maximised. When the rain falls, all run off makes its way to the gutter lines; the strategic tapering of the gutters allows for all the water to run to specific down pipes, holding tanks or storm water management systems.
There are a number of added benefits of using a tapered gutter on your shed:
Easier storm water management
Reduced earthworks as there is no need to lay pipes underground
Removes risk of erosion
When deciding on whether or not your shed should have tapered gutters it is important to consider the long-term cost savings. As Australians we are well aware of the benefits of harvesting water simply and efficiently; so why wait?
