With the global change in weather patterns affecting rainfall distribution temporally and spatially, rainwater harvesting and utilization, Malaysia has certainly be given an added dimension and approach towards an integrated environment friendly and sustainable urban water resources development initiative. This study is aimed at discussing on how rainwater systems can save the water usage from public water supply, system design, installation cost various benefits of rainwater, and the most important thing is return of investment of this system. The amount of rainwater use and its consistency from past studies are explained. With the advantage of the country’s blessed generous rainwater resources, capturing it for present and future use on-site would certainly help to count city public water supply and possibly replacing the non-potable of water supply, common whilst also reducing the potential of urban flash floods especially at the Klang Valley by via reduction of peak storm runoff. The system design was explained with drawing which can see more clearly about the water tank was placed and how it can influence the cost, tidiness, space and etc. for the first step, it is require to build a simple prototype to measure and analysis the volume of rainwater. In this study, all of analyze techniques are evaluate and briefly discussed. The results of analyze techniques was explained briefly by taking the rainfall data to determine the ideal water tank size. Then the total cost of project is determined to get the return of investment.
