Aston Clinton, United Kingdom, July 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Kingspan Water, a leading supplier of rainwater harvesting equipment to the UK building industry, has published an introductory guide to rainwater harvesting for plumbers and installers on its website.
The guide covers operating principles for UK rainwater harvesting equipment, how to distinguish between gravity, boost and direct systems, compliance, regulations (see www.wras.co.uk), and maintenance.
Gerry Quinn, product manager at Kingspan Water, says: “The popularity of rainwater harvesting systems has grown rapidly in the UK in recent years, largely thanks to environmental rating schemes such as BREEAM and The Code for Sustainable Homes. Most mechanical and electrical (M&E) consultants now see rainwater harvesting as a routine addition to their new projects.
“The growth in rainwater harvesting represents a fantastic opportunity for new revenue streams for plumbers. Equally, we know that poor installations could rapidly undermine market confidence in the technology. This is an easy-to-understand introduction to the technology which we will continue to update with new advice and information as and when they come into force.”
