Innovative rainwater harvesting and water reuse specialists New Water has
appointed Mr Peter Chadwick as their New South Wales Business Development
Mr Chadwick has had extensive experience in the building industry having worked
with Bisley Homes and more recently with Boral Construction.
New Water only commenced operations in July 2004 and already turnover has passed

The major products include Rain Reviva, a highly innovative rainwater storage
bladder which fits under the house, or deck and can receive rainwater run-off
from the roof via all the downpipes. As a result it can capture up to 500% more
water than the standard rainwater tank and it stays out of sight. The stored
water can be plumbed into the house for use in toilets, showers, the washing

Their other product is Aqua Reviva, a grey water treatment and recycling system
which can purify shower, bath and washing machine water to Class A level so that
it can be endlessly reused for most household requirements. Performance testing

is the real long term solution.
“When the BASIX regulations come into full effect in mid-2006, the building
industry will have to seriously look at rainwater harvesting and grey water
reuse as the means for new homes to comply with the new regime,” Mr Chadwick
