Aquascape's Rainwater Harvest System
Capture > Filter > Reuse


WHAT IS THE AQUASCAPE
RAINWATER HARVEST SYSTEM?

..............................................................................

The concept is simple - utilize a modular system that will Capture, Store and Reuse water. Traditional rainwater harvesting is designed using plastic barrels (55 gallon drums) or large above ground and below ground cisterns where water is stored. Aquascape has taken this traditional rainwater harvesting concept and combined it with the Aquascape Ecosystem. The re-circulating ecosystem eliminates the concerns of stagnant water associated with traditional rainwater harvesting options. This approach provides the owner with the enjoyment of a beautiful water feature and helps them to better understand and respect water in the environment.

WHY THE NEED FOR A
RAINWATER HARVEST SYSTEM?

..............................................................................

It's a fact - 50% of residential water is used outdoors and the water coming out of our taps is not as good as rainwater...and it's not free! The importance of capturing rainwater alleviates run-off from the excessive amounts of rainwater falling on impervious surfaces such as roofs, sidewalks, patios, driveways, and compacted soils. It is during this journey that the excess water picks up a variety of pollutants and toxins, this mixture of pollutants is wreaking havoc in our natural water ways.

  • According to the EPA 45% of our river and stream miles are not fit for fishing and swimming.

  • Urban runoff is the #1 cause of coastal pollution.

  • By capturing and slowing it down we're stopping this unfortunate cycle and along the way we have a great free source of water.

  • Our overflow is designed to recharge precious groundwater reserves and closes the circle on the best rainwater system available.

RAINWATER HARVEST PRO-FIT UNITS
..............................................................................

We have created 6 rainwater harvest units that fit into the PRO-Fit system offering. These units are pulled together in a similar fashion to the Pondless Waterfall PRO-Fit boxes. The rainwater harvest units include one Downspout Filter, Snorkel, Centipede module, Aquablox and the liner and underlayment for the storage chamber. The systems use the PRO-Fit color coding system, so you can easily match the suggested PRO-Fit Signature BIOFALLS® to the project.
