Reference Job: Residential Rainwater Harvesting



This job used 2 - 1750 gallon tanks, which is a good size for the irrigation area and rooftop.


This was the irrigation contractor's first rainwater harvesting job. We spend as much time as requested on-site, showing the installers how to do it right, and that everyone understands how it works. The technology isn't new, we just put things together in a different way.

The Intewa Purain filter fit great just below the manway. There's enough space to move past the the filter to get to the tank. The pump goes here also. We show the contractor how to pipe and wire it so that someone can access the tank through this same hole.


Burying the tanks.


We have found that homeowners like to know how much rainwater they are using. So we installed a meter



The finished product. Ready for the Tour of Homes.  


Time from first customer contact to fully installed: less than 4 weeks. 

Commissioning time: 15 minutes to connect pump to power and reset the circuit breaker.  Usually City of Atlanta water pressure is very high, but in this case, our rainwater pump was even better!

See if you can find it here.
