Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
Gutterless Rainwater Harvesting
by RainSaucers Inc. on March 24th, 2011

RainSaucers is all about enabling free standing rain barrels with an emphasis on water quality- it's why we use food grade plastic for our catchment. We're not necessarily against using the roof, its just that we think roof runoff is best suited to lawns and non-edible plants.

Yet even though we're not specifically designed for roof catchment we've had many people say a RainSaucer is an ideal way to harvest water off structures with no gutters. And when you think of the hassle and expense of gutter installation, a single RainSaucer represents a legitimate alternative.

Now many of you reading this post might think, there probably aren't that many structures without gutters these days. But if you think broadly it's quite a few. No gutter structures we've seen include:
- Older homes, which predate city storm system
- New homes, where builder opts not to install
- Homes where gutters simply aren't needed such as in low rain climates or homes with sloped foundations
- Garages
- Sheds
- Gazebos
- Cabins
- Poor family homes in much of the developing world.
