Rainwater Harvesting with rain barrels and The Rainwater Hub
Complete water self-sufficiency in your yard
Rain barrels no longer need to be located next to the downspout but can be located anywhere in the yard (up to 150 feet away from the house) at the most convenient locations for watering.
Simply connect a standard garden hose between the Rainwater Hub and your rain barrels and let gravity do the rest.
You will not need a site survey or an expert to install pumps or bury tanks in your yard. This is a simple installation that can be done in only a fraction of the time and at only a fraction of the cost of conventional rainwater collection / harvesting systems.
The Rainwater Hub allows you to build a modular rainwater collection system. You can start off with just a small number of rain barrels and then add water storage capacity as the needs of the yard change and as budget allows.
The Rainwater Hub allows you to store your water almost anywhere in the yard. You no longer need to crowd the area next to a downspout with numerous rain barrels but can position them in more discreet locations around the yard. Not only will this allow the water to be stored where it is most needed, next to your plants, but also frees up the area next to the house for more attractive features.
The Rainwater Hub is also perfect for installing on a downspout next to a path which would otherwise be obstructed by the use of a conventionally installed rain barrel and rainwater diverter.
Water bills have doubled for many people in the last decade, and will do so for decades to come. Rainwater collection / harvesting is great for reducing water costs.
So don’t pour money away, instead collect ample rainwater simply and efficiently.
Channelling rainwater away from the house can control the ground moisture level, and help prevent based flooding and foundation damage. By distributing rainwater to drain fields or bio-swales rainwater naturally recycles into the ground, not the sewer system.
The Rainwater Hub relies purely on gravity to channel water to the waiting rain barrels.
It has no pumps, no moving parts, has zero operating carbon foot print and is virtually maintenance free.
