Above-Ground Rainwater Harvesting Systems

Rainwater

An above-ground rainwater collection tank is easily connected to a standard residential downspout where it can store 75 to 250 gallons of rainwater. A downspout filter and automatic pump, complete the system. Individual tanks can be connected to each other for more water storage, or a single pump can be disconnected and reconnected to additional rainboxes placed at other downspouts around the house.
