Rainwater Harvesting Systems
A rain garden is an attractive and efficient way to maximize your rainwater harvesting system and promote healthy plants. It is an ideal way to conserve the overflow rainwater once the barrel or cistern is full, keeping it on your site and out of storm drains, and reducing the amount of pollutants that enter our waterways from stormwater runoff.
Cisterns are growing in popularity in modern times, as more people take steps to reduce their carbon footprint. With many benefits and many applications, cisterns are a cost-efficient and effective way to positively impact the earth and its many ecosystems.
With a variety of storage options, from plastic tanks, to galvanized steel, concrete, and more, you can create a cistern system to fit within a large or small budget.
There are many aspects to consider when designing a rainwater harvesting system. You will need to determine your tank material and filtration options, whether to use a pump or gravity, how to manage overflow, and more. Sarasota Rain Barrels can help you every step of the way to create a custom solution for your unique situation and goals.
There are two types of rainwater harvesting systems: active and passive. Active rainwater harvesting refers to the storage of rainwater in a tank, barrel, or cistern for later use. Passive rainwater harvesting is achieved when rainwater is diverted into a retention pond, rain garden, or bio swale, where it seeps back into the ground to recharge groundwater/aquifer supplies.
