More than 97 percent of the nearly 1.4 billion cubic kilometres of water on earth is sea water - non potable water. Most of the remaining freshwater is permanently frozen in the poles and glaciers. The remaining, freely usable freshwater amounts to only 0.3 percent of the world's total water resources.
An even bigger problem than the quantity is the quality of mains water. Increasing water pollution caused by nitrates, phosphates, pesticides and other chemical substances is making purification increasingly difficult and expensive. The freshwater reserve is being used in a permanent cycle. Today, the average consumption of freshwater in the UK is 150 litres per person per day (source: Environment Agency).
For some domestic applications the quality of highly purified potable water is not necessary. Around 50% of mains water can be replaced by untreated rainwater.
Beside the advantage that the use of rainwater is free of charge, it neither has to be purified nor transported over long distances. The two most important arguments to support the use of rainwater are as follows:
- Substitution of potable water
- Flood reduction due to decentralised rainwater retention tanks
