Stand Alone Rainwater Harvesting System
So Californians, what are you doing now that it is raining?
by RainSaucers Inc. on November 20th, 2014

The Drought in California is well known by now and for the most part, the response has been pretty good. Residential monthly water usage is down by between 10 and 20% and the State has passed Proposition 1, a $7.5 billion water bond to help pay for new reservoirs among other actions. As a vendor of rainwater harvesting systems based in California we have to wonder- will this finally make rainwater harvesting mainstream in the Golden State? After all the rains are here now in California.

So far we haven't seen any signs of massive interest in rainwater harvesting beyond our typical early adopter customers. City rain barrel subsidy programs like those in San Francisco, Oakland, and Santa Monica have continued to grow- but at such a slow pace they haven't truly mobilized the population.

But all that should be changing now that the rains are here.  One factor in our favor: much of the State is on "smart" water meters now which allow customers to go online and see not just their water use, but precipitation in their area. Hopefully, customers will put two and two together and realize water usage can be cut even further with a little planning and a rain barrel or two.
