The Benefits of Water Collection

The Benefits of Water Collection

Growing up it was common to have a large water collection tank or cistern on your property for water collection. Our large tobacco barn's rooftop water collection was the perfect resource for all our water needs. We never heard our parents’ express concerns with water consumption as we always had water when we turned on the water faucet.  

In areas of our country, freshwater is a scarce commodity for households, fire suppression, and irrigation. The uncertainty of trusting there will be water when the faucet, lawn hose can be reduced when you install a freshwater water storage tank system.  Here are a few reasons why having one or many water storage tanks makes sense.

Snow and rain that falls from the sky is FREE

All you need is a house, barn roof, or even a greenhouse which can easily be calibrated to the standard surface area. Click here to easily calibrate the size tank you will need. 

Whether living off the grid or in the city, you are now water self-sufficient.

In the United States depending on the state or county you live in rainwater collection rebates may be available.  For a quick look at what we found, simply click here.  Oh, sorry Colorado, it seems that collecting rainwater is illegal in the entire state.

OHHH that Smell

Does your water have THAT SMELL? Do you wonder to yourself what side effects all the chemicals are causing to your gut?

Your water collection storage may not need treating as you know your stored water is clean and free of chemicals.  All you need is to keep the roof clean of debris and clean the collection tank from time to time.  

Well, Well, Well

Poor land planning by states and counties has increased stress on water wells and aquifers that have been used by property owners for decades to provide reliable water. The water you collect on your property cannot be taxed or regulated, having your water collection system eliminates the stress of depending on your community well or water ditch management as a water resource.
