Rainwater collection (waterbutts, storage tank)

 

All rainwater that falls on the roof of both properties will be collected in an underground storage tank in the back garden. Waterbutts at the front of the property will store circa 80 litres of rainwater for use in the garden. Once full, they will overflow into the storage tank.

Once full, the storage tank will overflow into a soakaway designed to take the rainwater to the most permeable layer of soil on the site.

The Code 6 house will use rainwater from the storage tank for flushing toilets.

Fact 12

Does not melt

Masonry concrete does not melt in high temperatures.  This means that there is no need for protective paints or special insulation – and finishes can be viewed just as the designer intended.
