If there’s something to learn from this water disruption that has affected more than 1 million people, it’s that we should always be prepared to be water independent.
Have you ever thought of collecting rainwater? Here’s a story about how Dr. Chee survived through the 5 days of water disruption without any worry.
“I’ve been collecting rainwater with my home system for 8 years now. My home rainwater tank is able to collect up to 800 liters of rainwater. Usually I use it for gardening and outdoor washing. But during this water disruption, it has become really useful.
“Coincidentally, I just had a home renovation on the first day of water disruption but we could still clean the house using the rainwater. I have 4 school-going children and we have to wash their school uniforms every day.
“I was actually quite worried as the duration of water disruption this time was much longer than anything previously. Fortunately, there was rain these few days which helped me to collect the rainwater and filter it into clean water for my daily usage.
“And the best thing is that my home rainwater harvesting system costed me less than RM3,000 in total, which has helped me through water disruptions all these years.”
With water disruptions happening more than 10 times over these few years, we never know when the next one will be, and should always be prepared.
Did you know that over 12,000 households and 500 commercial buildings in Malaysia are using rainwater harvesting system to be water independent?
When is your turn to be water independent?
