Lower bills for technical water in buildings
Aquabox can be used for rainwater harvesting that saves the bills for non-drinking water purposes in the household:
- Washing machines;
- Sanitation and hygiene;
- Watering the plants;
- Irrigation of green areas and gardening;
- Washing vehicles.
Mitigation of water-related damage
Aquabox system for rainwater infiltration and attenuation can prevent damage to the property caused by:
Heavy rainfall: a significant amount of precipitation in only a few hours can lead to severe landslide risk;
Floods: the most common risk for foundations and structural damage of the house;
Water retention: endangers sidewalks, pavings, topcoats, etc.
Decreased costs for maintaining infrastructure
Aquabox provides faster rainwater runoff, lowers dependency on the sewage system, and reduces the costs of maintenance of pavement threatened by damage from water retention. At the same time, repairing costs for clogged and leaking pipes of sewer lines can be prevented with an independent drainage system.
With these three Aquabox benefits homeowner’s 10-year savings could be approx. 40,000 EUR.
This is enough for Tesla Model 3.
