There is no doubt that the climate has changed. Once it rains, it rains extremely hard, often followed by a prolonged drought. This means that we can not only expand water and sewerage systems that seem to be undersized during the worst rainy periods, we have to think a little longer and especially in new courses. If you look at the average precipitation per year, not much has happened, however, we see a big difference in the intervals and intensity.
We have been working with stormwater for about 20 years and during these years we have seen the changes emerge and we feel pretty confident about what needs to be done, and there is a lot we can easily do!
Our coverings with side intakes swallow far much more water compared to conventional coverings with only grilles from above that clog faster than you have time to say "autumn leaves". Our coverings with side inlets are equipped with a pipe socket at the bottom, which can also turn them into spouts, all in the same product. These are also ideally suited for use with plant beds and tree pits to take care of the water on site and only allow the surplus to be passed on to the water supply and sewerage systems.
Infiltration & delay.
Intense and persistent rain today becomes too much for our water supply and sewerage systems, which often results in floods. We need to get better at taking care of the water on site and not just send everything to the water supply and sewerage systems. The proportion of hardened surfaces is constantly growing in our societies, which means that natural infiltration is prevented, this can have major consequences, especially at the groundwater level. If the groundwater level drops 1 meter in clay soil, the previously water-filled pores are packed and the ground drops by 1cm, which can create settlements on surrounding properties with extremely large costs as a result.
We have the market's smartest solutions for infiltrating the water on site and also creating delay reservoirs to take care of the extreme amounts of water. This takes place below the ground surface so we can continue with the exploitation without affecting the groundwater level, at the same time as it relieves the VA systems.
Rainwater harvesting is a fairly new concept for us in Sweden. However, an incredibly important one!
We have advanced systems for taking care of rainwater from the roofs, directing the water to underground reservoirs and using the water for our toilets, washing machines, scrubbing water to clean floors, water ejectors to water the gardens during the drying periods.
How advanced you want to do it is entirely up to the customer. Maybe you are content to connect a water ejector to be able to irrigate the garden when there is normally a watering ban?
If you are building a new house, you should think about this from the beginning, because the fact is that there is also money to be saved! If you build new, the additional cost will not be so great compared to connecting an already existing property, although in the long run you can also "count down" the investment on a supplement to an already existing property.
We also have simpler varieties in the form of decorative tanks that are placed close by, and in a few minutes connected to the downpipes to be able to water their flowers and crops in their garden.
A smart thinking for a sustainable future - this is what we call Eco-Logic!
