Rainwater collection is becoming more wide-spread in communities throughout North America. In areas that recieve little rainfall throughout the year, many residential and commercial property owners are capturing storm water runoff with rainwater collection systems to irrigate landscapes, and offset rising water costs.
Many areas of the world still rely on rainwater as their primary source of water. Also, in many communities that utilize their water needs through public means, many businesses and homeowners are utilizing rainwater collection systems to save money and ensure protection from droughts or inadequate rainfall/snowfall.
Some other uses of a Rainwater collection system are to reuse other water sources such as grey water being expelled from showers, washing machines, etc.
The most common Rainwater Collection Systems today are designed to capture the bulk of water from roofs of houses or other buildings. It is transported from the large mass area into a filtering sytem such as gutters or pipes. These lead into storage in holding tanks or cisterns for distribution as needed.
The components needed for a standard Rainwater Collection System are as follows:
- Collection (roof)
- Conveyance (gutters, pipes, etc.)
