The Aquascape Rainwater Harvesting System, formerly known as RainXChange, is a sustainable stormwater management solution for both commercial and residential applications. The unique integration of a water feature provides filtration as well as enhances the overall landscape design.
Water is quickly becoming an “endangered species” on our blue planet. Urban growth around our area increases stormwater runoff, which then harms our natural waterways. All life requires water for survival. Learning about the benefits of rainwater harvesting, and the benefits of rainwater itself, and becoming aware of the current state of our environmental condition, is the first step in identifying viable solutions to ensure clean and healthy water for future generations.
Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting Systems
The Rainwater Harvesting System adds the beauty of a water feature to an efficient system for capturing, filtering, and reusing our most precious resource – water! Whether you choose to add a pondless waterfall or bubbling urn to your landscape, you’ll be happy knowing your Rainwater Harvesting System not only looks great, but is beneficial for the environment, too!
Ease of Use
While you enjoy the benefits of a decorative water feature, the Rainwater Harvesting System filters the stored water to prevent stagnation and growth of unhealthy bacteria. Accessing the stored underground water is as easy as connecting a hose to a spigot. A small pump is connected to the stored water, making it convenient for you to water the landscape.
Because the water stored in the Rainwater Harvesting System is constantly moving and being aerated, it becomes a sanctuary for wildlife. Birds, frogs, dragonflies, and butterflies all flock to water in the landscape. In fact, water is a key component in certified wildlife habitats.
Capturing rainwater to operate a decorative water feature creates true self-sustainability, drastically reducing the need for chemically-treated traditional water sources. The Aquascape Foundation relies on the Rainwater Harvesting System to be the backbone of their missions to provide children with clean drinking water.
