Rainwater Collection

Irrigation and plumbing store rainwater which is free of salts and acids and the purity and softness of collected water help prevent scale on piping and appliances. Harvesting rainwater for reuse is inexpensive and not only brings down water costs but eases the stress on public water sources. Water tanks are used to collect rain and groundwater, sustainably maintaining the integrity of building infrastructure and, in some states, even providing tax benefits for campuses equipped with water collection systems.
