The practice of rainwater harvesting has been around for centuries, and it’s been widely used in Europe, Asia, Australia, and many other regions where residents often depend solely on rain for their day to day water needs.
Water supplies can be limited for some homes, which is why many people have turned to this method for their water needs. Rainwater harvesting systems provide non-potable stormwater containment and many other benefits for you to consider. Here’s what you should know:
How It Works
When it comes to rainwater harvesting, it can be used for irrigation, washing cars, flushing toilets, washing clothes, pressure washing, and it can also be purified to use as drinking water. But how does it exactly work?
- Our water experts install custom, cast-in-place concrete subterranean storage tanks that can range from 500 to 600,000 gallons.
- We then design the perfect pumping system for you.
- We install booster pumps to allow room for pressurized water to get through for irrigation and other non-potable purposes such as:
- Washing cars
- Pressure washing
- Indoor plumbing
There are many benefits to adding this system to your home:
- Efficient use of free, pure water
- Saves money on utilities
- Reduces the effects of erosion and runoff
- No pollutants, contaminants, or sediment
- Prolongs the life of your water-dependent appliances and equipment
- Boosts the value of your home or property
- Rainwater harvesting is also an environmentally-conscious and cost-effective means of collecting rain and snow from various surfaces and storing it for later use.
