Rainwater harvesting is a sustainable and environmentally-friendly solution that saves water consumption by utilizing rainfall, a free source of relatively clean water. One of the ways we can use collected rainwater is for toilet flushing, which accounts for nearly 30% of water use in the average home. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of implementing a rainwater toilet flush system.
