Water Conservation in Abbotsford
With the forecast showing upcoming days of sunshine, we are forging ahead on our Abbotsford project! This energy efficient custom build contains plenty of workshop and storage space with cozy, practical living quarters.
These Fraser Valley homeowners are all about water conservation so they recently installed 3 Graf Carat rainwater harvesting tanks beside their future home.
Using a Telebelt
We called in Marshall Brothers to provide the services of their telebelt conveyor to assist in the placement of material around those tanks. By using a telebelt, we can quickly and economically convey and place bulk materials such as sand, gravel, and crushed rock. A great big “thank you” to Jim Smith from Marshall Brothers!
Rainwater Harvesting Tanks
Each Graf Carat rainwater harvesting tank, supplied by Barr Plastics in Abbotsford, can hold up to 1,700 US gallons of harvested water. This water can be used for toilet flushing, running laundry, washing vehicles, and irrigation. A great way to save water and keep that municipal water bill extremely low!
Several years ago we installed Graf’s largest rainwater harvesting system in Canada! Read up on the story here on the Barr Plastics website.
Today’s video on New Homes Built Right talks about the use of the telebelt.
