Abstract

•A simple water balance model to optimize RWH systems is presented.•The model is applied at sub-catchment level for various cases and temporal scales.•The efficiency of RWH nearly doubles when all sub-catchments jointly are connected.•Flow direction had a significant impact on optimizing RWH performance.•The model is based on general physical principles and can be applied elsewhere also.
