FP McCann’s rainwater harvesting chamber is a bespoke precast water storage chamber that is compatible with water harvesting systems for residential, industrial, commercial and agricultural installations.
Capturing rainwater re-use offers significant cost savings for the user and benefits the environment by increasing water resources and further enhancing water amenity. The chamber complies with Environment Agency SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) directives.
The rainwater harvesting chamber also helps ease the growing pressure on the UK’s water capturing water run-off thereby reducing flood risk in an already overloaded drainage network. The controlled management of rainwater run-off is key to the Environment Agency’s SuDS directives. Future domestic, commercial and industrual developments will be subject to planning guidelines that strongly feature SuDS initiatives. Our rainwater harvesting chamber is one sustainable solution in the water conservation challenge.
The Rainwater Harvesting Chamber is part of FP McCann’s environmental range of waste water management products.
