Harvesting rainwater to run new or future water features is now possible. Green technology makes dollars and “sense” by reducing water bills including city storm and sewer charges. Alleviates demand on municipal systems and avoid strict watering restrictions. Rainwater can be used for:
- Irrigation of lawns and planter beds.
- Protect property from wildfires.
- Topping off water features, swimming pools and hot tubs.
- Washing cars or patio or decks.
According to a gallup poll March 2008, when Americans were asked to rate their level of worry about each of 12 envirornmental concerns, the top 4 relate to the quality of water.
1 inch of rainwater on a 2000 sq. ft. roof = 1,250 gallons of water.
The average US household with a 10,000 square foot lot uses 5,000 gallons of water weekly for landscape irrigation. Locating and storing the water underground maintains the integrity and beauty of your home and landscape.
