The systems monitor water levels in rainwater tanks and release it at a controlled rate

Through an industry-led project, Australia has opened the floodgates to intelligent rainwater tank systems. Talking Tanks monitor water levels in a rainwater tank and automatically release water at a controlled rate if required. The system pre-empts the release of water from set points that are chosen by the user, according to rain or storm predictions, which are received via a communications link to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Alternative Applications

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.

Drinking Water Downpour

When most people think of rainwater harvesting, they picture a 55-gal tank that collects rainwater from the roof to water plants — but this term also extends to natural collection systems like dams. Rainwater harvesting is nothing new; it has been around for centuries, dating back to ancient Egyptians who used earthen dams to control runoff. Another example is the rice terraces of the Philippines, which are still in existence today. More sophisticated rainwater systems have been uncovered by archaeologists in Crete, Istanbul and throughout the Mediterranean region.

Commercial Complexities

Over the past five years, the topic of rainwater harvesting has become prevalent everywhere we look. Many articles on this subject begin with an introduction about rainwater harvesting not being a new concept because systems have been around since before the ancient Greeks. They then cover the basics, from where water can be captured to its various applications. Storage tanks, pumps and filters are typically mentioned, but sometimes without specific details. This is for good reason: Rainwater harvesting systems, especially commercial-sized ones, can be complex.

Rainwater catchment facilities in schools will aid in efforts to reduce flooding and conserve water

Sen. Loren Legarda said that all schools and barangays in the country should have rainwater catchment facilities as part of efforts to reduce flooding and conserve water.

"These rainwater catchment systems can help address the country's water shortage problem, particularly during the dry season, while making use of the excessive water brought by the rains during the wet season. These facilities can also contribute to [reducing] the occurrence of flooding," Legarda said.
