Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
Rainwater Harvesting for America
Posted on March 11th, 2010

One question we sometimes get when we tell folks here in the U.S about our concept is "where can I get one"? It seems a low cost easy way to reap the benefits of rainwater harvesting is in demand everywhere, and not just the developing world. Thanks to a heightened awareness of sustainability issues and an interest in water conservation, RWH appears to be gaining traction in America.

RWH is nothing new to drought prone areas such as Texas and the Southwest where some families have been living off rainwater for decades. But recently, the concept has been gaining hold in cities that are concerned with the problem of storm run off. In our home town of San Francisco for instance, rain barrels are partially susidized by the city in order to reduce the pollution of the SF bay.

So does this mean RainSaucers should be made available to Americans too? We are considering it. One thing we know for sure is that collecting rain straight from the sky , rather from a rooftop, is without a doubt a cleaner method that results in higher quality water. We also think there are a lot of people out there who don't want to cut their downspouts just to hook up a rain barrel.
