Rainwater Harvesting Overview

Over the last century, impervious surfaces like concrete, asphalt and roofing materials have been diverting natural rainwater absorption from developed areas and has begun depletion of the local underground aquifers. By capturing as much rainfall as possible from buildings and structures, we can use that water to irrigate landscaping during dry times and prevent erosion during times of high precipitation. By using rainwater for washing laundry, flushing toilets and pressure washing houses and vehicles, we can further contribute to water conservation by limiting the use of drinking water and reducing the energy used to pump that water from the municipal supply. The combination of these effects can greatly contribute to the conservation of our most precious natural resource - water.

Library of System Designs

If you're looking for a quick-start and would prefer to just browse through our drawings, our Library of Rainwater Collection System Designs is the perfect place to start. In our library you'll find our most popular systems ranging from residential to commercial, above ground and below ground, and from plastic to fiberglass and corrugated steel rainwater harvesting systems. You can download your system design in either PDF or DWG (CAD) formats and we'll be happy to help you customize the system to your needs. Just give us a call at 800-654-WATER (9283).
