A clearer focus on water supplies for farming will be welcomed across the farming sector in the wake of the recent Defra water consultation, potential limitations on water extraction and with impending rises in mains water rates for farmers. A company that helps farmers to manage their own water supplies, Peterborough-based plastic water tank specialist, Enduramaxx, welcomes a keener focus on water in farming.
Enduramaxx established its brand through the supply of dedicated plastic water tanks, vertical storage tanks, and cone bottom tanks (conical tanks), amongst others, and provides farmers with dedicated rainwater harvesting solutions. By collecting the huge volumes of rainwater from farm roofs, water can be stored in rugged rainwater tanks for when it’s needed most. The company’s horizontal and vertical rainwater tanks are manufactured using a single piece of rotationally-moulded, uv-stabilised polyethylene which stores water safely and in optimum conditions for long periods of time.
More and more farmers are looking at rainwater harvesting as a viable tactic to put them more in control of their own water supplies and the latest round of FFIS grant funding incorporates rainwater harvesting equipment within it’s remit of eligible equipment.
