While studying at the University of Bristol and working in the local NHS  trust, I became concerned by the massive amount of waste being generated, particularly the excess water being used.


Along with the concerns of plastic in water and the outflow of raw sewerage into our rivers and seas it became an obsession for me to think of ways that I could make a difference in water conservation.


In discussion with colleagues and students at university, it struck us all that the use of purified water to flush toilets was a crime, especially when you consider the journey and cost of purification and the distribution cost of pumping drinking water back to properties to flush toilets. Then there is the carbon foot print of water companies to produce the purification process.


When researching this phenomena,  we came across a statement from Mr. Terry Nash of the UK Rain Harvesting Association  who said;

"It is a nonsense for water to fall on your roof and then, at some trouble, cost and complexity, to ship it off to a treatment plant where it's brought up to drinking standard and then brought all the way back so you can flush your toilet or water the garden," he says.  "Where you have the water, it's better to keep it and use it.

Basic research shows that most toilets flush some 8 litres of purified drinking water with every flush. In 2021 there was 24.8 million residential dwellings with approximately 58.6 million usual residents UK Government stats show 67.62 million people in the UK. That’s 541 million litres of purified drinking water for just one flush for everyone uk stats. show that 1000 litres from you tap costs approximately one pound ninety four pence that is in excess of eight million pounds for one flush and the average person flushes 5 times per day that is in excess  of forty one million pounds.


After long discussions with my Grandfather- who is a retired professional surveyor with extensive knowledge of starting and developing businesses we concluded that the best way to stop this waste of clean water is to use a free, naturally occurring alternative which is plentiful in the UK…. RAIN.


We decided the best way to harvest this resource was to catch rain as it falls on the roof, stop the water from entering gutters, divert it, and use it for some good.


We started doing sketches based on my thinking and idea. We decided on the rainstore concept, so off we went with patent applications, a new company with shares so that investors could join us with the tax breaks of.  S.E.I.S  AND  E.I.S. for the new company called Aqua Store Limited with a very comprehensive web site at  w.w.w. aqua store limited dot com.


Over the lock down period and much help we have developed a gravity fed system designed for new build housing. Our production methods, installation and equipment designs are settled.


At a cost fitted of £4,000.00 and a market guaranteed by government policy of 30,000 new houses every year as a minimum, showing a profit range of  £400.00 - £1,000.00 per unit  we

think it could be very profitable in the UK market only, but with European sales and global licence fees it could grow into a substantial public company with great dividend returns for investors.


We are seeking seed capital for an equity stake in our company.
