Rainwater Catchment | automated irrigation systems
Rainwater catchment systems capture and store rainwater for landscape irrigation. A typical house with 2,000 square feet of roof area receiving 24 inches of rainfall can collect approximately 30,000 gallons of water a year. Rainwater is stored in above or below ground tanks until needed in the summer to irrigate plants in the garden.
Automated rainwater irrigation systems use pumps, irrigation controllers and valves to automatically irrigate the landscape. Rainwater is applied to the landscape using highly efficient sub-surface drip irrigation. The system automatically switch to supply domestic water to the landscape if the rainwater tanks are empty.
