When you’re a farmer who is trying to save money where possible, the chance for some water to provide for your animals which is completely free sounds very promising, doesn’t it? Of course, the question that many farmers have is how best to accomplish this. In order to try and help you with this, we’ve come up with a solution.
So, how can I collect free water for my animals?
You can actually collect free rainwater for your animals, in a process which is actually fairly simple. By using our range of guttering and drainage, you can collect all the water you could need when it rains, or when a storm comes over the land. By pairing the guttering and drain systems with water collection facilities, like a water trough or a butt, you can collect it as it comes down the guttering, and then it can be used for drinking water for the animals, or whatever water you need it for, be it washing off machinery or even the livestock you own. As a concept, it is a good way to save money, because you’re using a resource which is naturally occurring and won’t add up to a heavy charge on your water bill at the end of the month or quarter.
Our PVC rainwater products are designed of materials that are durable and good for transporting water, so you won’t need to worry about replacing them for a very long time. We also offer fibre cement gutters, which are designed in the same way our roofing is, making it extra tough and being resistant to the buildup of bacteria and dirt, so the water you get will be clean and safe for your animals. You’re obviously going to want to save money if you’re looking to run the most efficient farm possible, and being able to use the rain which is so frequent in the UK will provide you with a steady stream of water all year round, especially during the winter when the rainfall is more pronounced, and then you can enjoy the savings you get and put them to use elsewhere.
