RainXchange Rain Collection Systems

Harvesting, or collecting, rainwater that comes off your roof during rains is a growing trend in green home design. Harvesting rainwater has a number of environmentally-friendly attributes, including:

One inch of rainfall on a 1,000 square foot roof is equal to over 600 gallons of water! That same roof receiving 30 inches of rain a year can produce over 20,000 gallons of water! When you consider that most U.S. homes use far more water outside than inside, you can see how collecting rainwater for later irrigation use will obviously reduce your home's use of municipal or groundwater.

There are different types of rainwater harvesting systems, from simple rain barrels that can collect 60 gallons to larger above-ground systems capable of storing up to 3,000 gallons. While these above-ground systems are easy to install and use, some homeowners don't want these storage tanks cluttering up their outdoor spaces.
