Abstract
(EN)
A water storage and storm water collection apparatus for incorporation in or on a building structure such that the apparatus is integral with the building structure and generally forms part of the structure; the apparatus comprising: at least one storage reservoir (2); a catchment provided on the building (in the direction of arrow 3) in communication with the storage reservoir(s) (2) so that storm water run-off from the catchment enters the reservoir(s) via inlet pipe (4); at least one outlet (5) from the reservoir(s) (2) in communication with a supply line (6) which terminates at a tap or water consuming appliance, means (9) on the reservoir(s) (2) which communicates with a supply line (10) allowing ingress of a supplementary water supply from an alternative source such as a mains supply.
(FR)
Dispositif de collecte des eaux de pluie et de stockage d'eau, destiné à être incorporé dans la structure d'un bâtiment ou installé au-dessus d'un bâtiment de manière à être solidaire de la structure et à faire partie de celle-ci. Ce dispositif comprend: au moins un réservoir de stockage (2); une zone de réception située sur le bâtiment (en direction de la flêche 3) et communiquant avec le ou les réservoirs de stockage; par le conduit d'admissions; de sorte que les eaux de pluie s'écoulant de la zone de réception pénètrent dans le ou les réservoirs (2); par le condit d'admissions (4); au moins une conduite de sortie (5) partant dudit ou desdits réservoirs (2) et communiquant avec une conduite d'alimentation (6) qui débouche au niveau d'un robinet ou d'une installation d'eau; et des moyens (9) ménagés sur le ou les réservoirs (2), qui communiquent avec une conduite d'alimentation (10) de manière à assurer une alimentation supplémentaire en eau à partir d'une source alternative telle qu'une canalisation principale.
