Watering the garden

Rainwater utilisation for your garden

For watering your garden rain water is far better than tap water. Because, along with the rain water, your plants can take up the necessary minerals at the same time. So generally, fertilizer no longer needs to be applied. The tap water that is usually used for watering lawns or other plants often contains a lot of lime and in extreme cases this may result in damage to your plants.

For these reasons, a rainwater harvesting system is very useful. You not only save money and improve the mineral uptake of your plants, water scarcity due to lack of rain is a thing of the past.


Rain column

Our rainwater columns are the most cost-effective solution for using rainwater to irrigate your garden. Thanks to the integrated rain collector, the rainwater columns automatically fill with rainwater and thus form the basis for an independent irrigation system.


Although cisterns are more expensive to purchase than rainwater columns, they are not just the basis for an irrigation system. They enable the construction of an entire water infrastructure.



With an individual irrigation system based on a rainwater column, a considerable amount of drinking water can be saved, depending on the size of the garden. This saving also leads to a considerable reduction in costs. In addition, rainwater offers a significant advantage when watering plants. In contrast to hard and calcareous drinking water, rainwater is soft and contains hardly any lime, which promotes the growth and health of plants. While a rainwater column only provides enough water for watering the garden, a cistern offers the possibility of establishing a holistic water supply system for the entire house. This leads to even greater savings on drinking water and results in considerably lower costs.


A rainwater column is not only inexpensive in comparison but also very easy to install: All you have to do is connect the rainwater column to the downpipe via the rain collector and the rainwater column fills up automatically the next time it rains. Any accessories, such as a garden hose, can be easily attached to the integrated tap. The most challenging step in installing a cistern is the initial burying. Once this step has been completed, all that is needed to supply rainwater for irrigation is a domestic system pump and a tap with a separate service water pipe. Any devices such as a sprinkler system can also be easily installed via the tap.


Installing a rainwater column is ideal for people who want to save water and therefore money when watering their plants and gradually set up their own watering system. A cistern is ideal for people who want to design their graywater management effectively from the outset and are looking for a holistic water supply system for their entire home.

Automatic irrigation system

Regardless of whether you opt for a rainwater column or a cistern. The automation of irrigation is easy to implement with additional components such as sprinkler systems, sprinkler systems, lawn sprinklers, time controls and timers. To ensure sufficient pressure on the pipes, a garden pump is also required, which must be connected to the cistern or rainwater column. The big advantage: after the initial installation and set-up of an automatic irrigation system, you will never have to worry about watering your plants again.
