Water Cycle

Water Cycle in general

From school everyone knows the illustration in the textbooks about the water cycle and has the illustration in front of their eyes. However, reproducing it from memory is not quite so easy. But it is not necessary to open the whole barrel. Therefore, here is a brief explanation of the water cycle as a refresher.
As is well known, the oceans are the largest water reservoirs on earth. Solar energy heats the water and evaporation, mainly on the surface of the ocean, and to a lesser extent on land, creates moisture in the air. The wind transports the moist air to the mainland. When the moist air rises, it cools down. Cold air, however, can absorb less water vapour than warmer air, so it condenses in the air above a certain height. This creates clouds. If the water droplets become large enough, precipitation occurs and the water falls to earth in the form of rain, snow or hail. The most important information is that water is never lost in the entire water cycle of the earth between the circulation, which usually takes place between the sea and the mainland. It only changes its state. It is so important that it is considered a prerequisite for life.

The way of water into the home
The water cycle ensures that gardens, fields and more retain their colour, freshness and fruit. We have made use of this cycle and offer customers the opportunity to use this water for domestic purposes as well. Rainwater is decentralised, free of charge and available almost everywhere in the world. In the household, it can be used almost anywhere, the filtering determines the purpose. But how does it actually work? Rainwater is collected in a so-called cistern or rainwater tank. This tank must be of the right size for the rainwater that accumulates, be leak-proof and be installed underground so that no light enters and ensures that unwanted bacteria, algae or vermin can spread. From the collection areas, the water is piped to the rainwater tank (cistern). Here, the incoming water is collected. Filtering is done by a mechanical filter or by a biological filter, such as our patented Biovitor. The rainwater can now be used at any time. Collecting rainwater and then releasing it by means of an irrigation system is definitely the perfect form of rainwater utilisation in the household and garden. The plants, your wallet and the environment are guaranteed to be happy about it.

Each GreenLife rainwater cistern is made from high quality polyethylene and undergoes extensive quality control to ensure that you receive a safe product and can enjoy the benefits of independent rainwater harvesting for a long time.
