Rooftop catchments: In the most basic form of this technology, rainwater is collected in simple vessels at the edge of the roof. Variations on this basic approach include collection of rainwater in gutters which drain to the collection vessel through down-pipes constructed for this purpose, and/or the diversion of rainwater from the gutters to containers for settling particulates before being conveyed to the storage container for the domestic use.

Filter Debris From Your Rain Tank

We proudly use Gutterglove Gutterguard as the First Stage Filter in all our rain harvesting systems because of it’s ability to filter out all leaves, pine needles and even sand from your gutter system and rain storage tanks. Visit their website for more information at www.Gutterglove.com

Rain Harvesting Systems installed Gutterglove Gutterguard on this 3,100 gallon rain collection system. You can clearly see from the fine stainless steel mesh on the photo that sand can't get through. Also, another benefit is that you will never have to clean out your gutters again.

Gutterglove filters out the sand from this two tank 3,100 gallon rain collection system. You can see Gutterglove on the gutter in the photo above in the lower right corner.

The tube is connected to the water outlet of the gutter for capturing the rainwater.

What is
Rain Harvesting?

Have you ever thought about collecting the rainwater that runs off your roof? Rainwater is an easily obtained resource, and it is an excellent way to satisfy your watering needs. You can save on well water, energy, irrigation water and municipality water by storing up this precious, free liquid that comes from the clouds above.

In simple terms, “rain harvesting” means collecting rainwater. A popular and easy way to catch rain is by filtering the water through the gutters on your roof. Once the water travels through the gutter, it is directed into a holding tank, and can then be used for any water needs you have. In most cases, it is used for non-potable applications but can become potable (used for drinking) if proper filters are used.

A Rain Harvesting Systems representative can provide you with several options of how to start your rainwater collection.
