Rainwater is a precious resource in the Southwest, yet many people fail to utilize this free commodity effectively. Capturing and storing rainwater can not only save money, it can help create vibrant ecosystems and landscapes, and relieve the demands of our water infrastructure for this natural resource.
Rainwater harvesting can be either active or passive. Passive water harvesting is where rainwater is stored on the site where it falls, and is infiltrated into the ground for watering landscapes and for groundwater recharge. Active rainwater harvesting is where rainwater is captured and stored for use at a later date.
Rainwater can be used in many ways once it has been stored, i.e. for irrigation, fountains, ponds, animals, and domestic uses for humans. The RainCatcher installs many types of passive and active rainwater catchment systems to help you use this free water source wisely.
