Rural US Properties Should Have a Rainwater Collection System

If you own a remote lodge, RV park, or campground, you know that providing ample water to your guests can be an issue. Sometimes, the flow rate of a well can be an issue. But, a commercial rainwater collection system can help supplement your well with fresh, purified rainwater.

The rainwater running off your roofs can be collected, stored, and filtered for use. In fact, until municipal water systems became common, people both in the city and rural areas collected rainwater. Rainwater in rural areas is generally very pure, with very little pollution picked up from the air.

A rainwater collection system begins with collecting the runoff from your roof gutters into a collection tank. You might not think rain runoff wouldn’t amount to much, but you would be wrong; just half an inch of rain running off of a 1,000-square-foot roof produces 300 gallons of water from one storm. Even in a desert environment that only gets 10″ of rain per year, a 1,000-square-foot roof could capture 8,000 gallons of water.

As you can see, a rainwater collection system could provide you with a valuable, supplemental supply of fresh, clean water.

A commercial rainwater collection system begins with collecting and storing rainwater off of your property’s roofs but goes much further. They also include a high-tech filtering system that feeds the filtered rainwater where you need it. It keeps the water flowing at your rural commercial property.
