In recent years, small-scale rainwater harvesting systems are installed for the purpose of tap water conservation. The efficiency of the rainwater harvesting system changes by the precipitation patterns of the area and water usage patterns. However, small-scale rainwater harvesting systems are installed without consideration of the system operation efficiency. In this research, a web application for optimization of rainwater harvesting system was developed. This web application can perform the rainwater harvesting system operation simulation which considers the precipitation and water use patterns of all areas of Japan. Moreover, the web application is able to calculate the most suitable rainwater storage tank capacity and rainwater collection area.
