Rainwater harvesting is a rapidly growing alternative to traditional water supplies. Typically collected from a roof top, the water is diverted into storage tanks where it is reused for a number of different purposes.
Most rainwater harvesting systems include a variety of pre-filtration and post-filtration components for water going into and out of the water storage tank. Numerous studies have shown that for one inch of rainfall on a 1,000 square foot catchment area you can expect to collect approximately 600 gallons of water! Some states do limit or restrict the amount of rainwater that can be captured due to interference with water rights.
Rainwater Harvesting tanks are an excellent way to offset your infrastructure costs as well as make a highly visible sustainability statement.
Below are several examples of rainwater harvesting tanks in a variety of sizes and multi-tank configurations.
