Rainwater Harvesting Training

Course Overview

The UK is increasingly turning toward rainwater harvesting for a portion of its water supply, and by training at the Plumbing Academy you can get ahead in the renewables trade by learning this valuable installation skill. The objective of this 2-day Rainwater Harvesting Training Course is to train existing plumbers to properly design, install and maintain rainwater harvesting systems.

Harvested rainwater can be used for a variety of different purposes such as flushing the toilet, washing clothes, cleaning cars and watering the garden. With additional treatment it can even be used for washing dishes, showers, baths, and even drinking. Owning an independent store of rainwater separate from the household supply also means watering your garden is also possible when a hosepipe ban is in effect.

It is because of these advantages that many customers are turning to rainwater harvesting. By completing your installation training with us, you’ll not only open yourself to a whole new area of work but also feel an added sense of satisfaction from doing your part to help the environment.
