In metro Atlanta, Georgia the area is stressed by a severe drought and booming population growth. The result has been the worst water shortage we've seen in over a century. Water conservation and development of alternative water supplies is necessary to meet our growing demand for fresh water. Local communities have imposed dramatic watering restrictions and even total watering bans on use of water for watering lawns and gardens, filling pools and ponds, pressure washing, car washing, and landscaping.

Rainwater harvesting is an innovative alternative approach anyone can use. Rainwater harvesting captures, diverts and stores rainwater for later use. Captured rainwater is often used in landscaping. Because the water is free of salts and other harmful minerals and does not have to be treated. It is also useful for attracting and providing water for wildlife.

Implementing rainwater collecting techniques directly benefits our state by reducing demand on the water supply, and reducing runoff, erosion, and contamination of surface water.

In many communities, 30 to 50 percent of all water consumption is used for landscape irrigation. Capturing rainwater for use in the landscape makes efficient use of a valuable resource, reducing water bills and reducing demand for potable water supplies.

Rainwater collection using our purpose built rain tanks, cisterns and rain barrels as well as leaf eaters and leaf beaters, first flush diverters, and rain sensors and monitors can help relieve some of the problems related to the current drought. Why pay for water when it falls free from the sky? You'll save time and money... and best of all, you'll help the environment while having the freedom to tend to your landscaping as you see fit.
