The only Rainwater Harvesting System supplier you will ever need

Our History

18 years ago a young post-graduate student set about to prove that sustainable products did not have a future in building design. In the course of his research for his dissertation he came across some of the most inspiring architecture and sustainable design he had ever seen. The problem he identified was that many of the products were not suitable for mass production.

Product Demo - Stormsaver History

This student was our Managing Director, Michael Farnsworth. Back in 1997 he took the idea of rainwater harvesting, which at that time was achievable through “Heath Robinson” means alone, and he set about designing a product for the mass building market.

His first product was a success, turning water from the River Trent into drinking water quality, but the costs, production and maintenance were so high that it was not commercially viable.

After graduation, Michael spent many years learning business skills, refining his product design and drumming up interest and enthusiasm from architects and consultants.


Lisa and Michael from StormsaverIn 2003, joined by his wife Lisa, Stormsaver was born and has since grown from a small family enterprise run from a coach house, into a thriving business of 22 people and the largest dedicated rainwater harvesting company in the UK.
