Rainwater in kindergarten

Before using the collected rainwater, the quantity collected during the first rainfall should not be introduced into the system (on deposits and for use). Then, before the use of the collected rainwater, the rainwater reservoir will be verified, if they do not collect impurities. Their purification will be performed and a complete cycle of purification will be carried out with rain water.
Technology validated in relevant environment.
Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so they can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include “high-fidelity” laboratory integration of components.
A pilot case this innovation is done in one Kindergarten in Tirana, the extent of this innovation should be to develop the innovation in an attractive place for children.

How does it work?

The water used for flushing toilets and washing clothes doesn’t need to be treated to potable, drinking water standards. Such savings would greatly reduce the monthly water bill, and help in a variety of other ways.Rainwater is free and although climate change and changing weather patterns may affect its regularity and intensity it should be part of the solution to our water future. It is cleaner than most other sources. Through this project will be improved the water supply for some Kindergartens, will be reduced the urban floods, ensuring a quality of clothes washing, bathing water reducing detergents, reducing costs of kinder gardens in water bill.
