Drought boosts popularity of rainwater harvesting
Drain Center has seen sales of its rainwater harvesting kits rocket by 40% compared to last year, as a result of UK drought.
The drainage supplier has also predicted a trend towards rainwater harvesting will continue to grow over the summer months as businesses and households looks to take action against water shortages.
A growing interest in the green agenda is also thought to be behind this year's spike in sales.
Drain Center trading director Dave Young, said: "We've seen a considerable surge in interest in our rainwater harvesting kits, it's a very sensible thing to be doing,"
"The good news is that installing one in your home is simple and if you're on a water meter you'll also save money on water bills."
