Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater is one of Earth's most precious resources and soon to be one of man's most sought-after commodities.  

Each year thousands of gallons of rainwater run off our rooftops and properties. Finding ways to capture that rainwater can give you a secure water source and potentially eliminate your water bill. Rainwater harvesting captures, diverts, and stores rainwater for later use.

How can I convert inches of rainwater into gallons of water?

Rainwater Harvesting Uses

Rainwater harvesting helps to capture, store, and use rainwater within your home or landscape. Rainwater harvesting can vary from a simple barrel or vase at the bottom of your downspout to a larger tank with a focus on utilizing 100% of your rainwater. A rainwater harvesting system can range in size and complexity, and choosing which system is right for you depends on the size of your home or business and how you wish to use your rainwater. Here at Higher Ground Rainwater Systems of Asheville, our Rainwater Management team is here to help you find the rainwater harvesting system that is the perfect fit for your needs.

Rainwater Barrels

A rainwater barrel is installed underneath the downspout of the guttering so that rain falling on the roof is funneled through your downspout and into the barrel. Usually, the container will include a spigot to enable you to draw water. A hose may be connected to the spigot to allow you to easily irrigate your garden. Out of the available rainwater barrels on the market, we offer food-grade constructed polyethylene resins that are FDA and NSF Approved.

Dry-System Tanks

A dry-system tank, much like a rainwater barrel, is tied into the gutter system to funnel rainwater into the top of the tank. A dry-system tank typically allows for larger storage amounts then a rainwater barrel, ranging from 250 to 10,000 gallons of storage, and it also has the option of a pump for larger irrigation usage. These tanks can be buried or hidden underneath structures such as a porch. They can also be custom-made to fit your style and the style of your home.
