The Case For Rainwater Collection

You may intuitively know that rainwater collection for your home or business makes sense — now you have the facts that back it up.

As clean, fresh water is becoming more scarce and more expensive, and flooding and erosion damage from storm water runoff becomes more costly to repair, rainwater collection makes more sense than ever.

Add the environmental benefits, the sustainability benefits (personal, local and global) and the increasing evidence that municipal water supplies deliver poor quality water into your home, and it’s clear the time to capture and use rainwater is now.
