Rainwater is a precious resource. Rainwater is free, simple to collect and can be utilized in a number of areas around your home or ranch. From irrigation systems, laundry and bathroom use, to drinking water; rainwater that is correctly harvested, stored and distributed can be a valuable asset to your eco-friendly lifestyle. Aquamate is a leading supplier of rainwater storage tanks, working with rainwater harvesting professionals to supply durable, reliable and affordable solutions.


What are the important considerations when harvesting rainwater?

No matter what your intended use is, you’ll need a tank to store the rainwater you’ve collected. What you plan on doing with the water after it’s stored will influence your needs. For simple irrigation systems, all you may need is a pre-filter, first flush diverter and a small pump. For more complex drinking water systems, you may need to consider pumps, pipework, filtration and sterilization systems.

Rainwater harvesting professionals, like those certified by the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association, are a great way of ensuring that you have the correct parts, your rainwater harvesting system is properly designed, uses good quality products and is installed in a safe and professional manner.
