What is ECOR?

The ECOR is  a unit that is installed on roof for Rain Harvesting. Rainwater harvesting involves the collection, storage and distribution of rainwater from the roof and other areas, for use inside and outside the home or business.
How can rainwater be used?
People have used rainwater in Ireland for years as their source of water for all requirements – drinking, cooking, bathing, laundry, toilet flushing through to watering the garden.
Nowadays, even when mains water supplies are available to communities, people can choose to use rainwater that is collected from the roof and stored in tanks or other vessels to supply their water requirements for toilets, washing machines and outdoor use. Rainwater is an ideal source for our water requirements and becoming more and more popular in Ireland, Europe and globally.
Is rainwater a safe and sustainable water supply ?
Rainwater that is captured by the ECOR and stored correctly, is a safe, economical and sustainable source of quality water.  In fact some people argue that rainwater is safer than water supplied through mains water systems. Our mains water is typically stored in reservoirs, treated with chemicals such as chlorine to kill off bacteria and make it safe, and then pumped through a network of pipes throughout the community. It makes sense to catch the rain that falls for free without chemicals.
Significant economic, social and environmental benefits can be achieved by using rainwater. By using Rainwater Harvesting systems to supply water for some of your water requirements, you can reduce your dependence on mains water. Our water supplies are falling and water restrictions are becoming more and more common to reduce our overall water usage and protect our supplies.
Rainwater falls for free – once you have installed the ECOR rainwater harvesting system, you use less mains water and will reduce your water bills significantly. Governments and Local Councils will increase water prices as they look to recover the true costs of providing water to the community. The construction of reservoirs, pipes and treatment plants is huge and ultimately as tax and rate-payers, we foot this cost.
