Rainwater Harvesting

Not a new technology, just forgotten. As recently as 70 years ago, catching rainwater for potable (drinking water) use was commonplace throughout Texas and the rest of the U.S. Many older homes still have cisterns buried in the backyard from which past homeowners drew their water. BrightLeaf designs and installs rainwater catchment systems of all sizes, for both potable and non-potable uses . You may only want rainwater as an irrigation source for saving money on purchased water while improving the vitality of your plants and livestock. Maybe you just want the best quality water available for you and your families personal use.
Advantages of Using Rainwater

  • Current municipal water and well water supplies may not be able to meet future demands.
  • Rainwater is one of the purest sources of water available and is free of the contaminants,
    minerals and salts usually associated with surface and well water.
  • Rainwater is considered soft water and therefore reduces the amount of soap and detergents needed for cleaning.  No water softeners are necessary and rainwater will not leave mineral deposits on plumbing fixtures, dishes or inside pipes and water heaters.
  • It’s free.
  • Does not contain minerals, salts or chemicals and is healthier for people, plants and animals.
  • Reduces run-off and demand on municipal and public supplies.  Improves surface water quality.
  • Promotes self sufficiency and appreciation for water as a resource.  Promotes water conservation.
  • Gravity and a small pump are all that’s  required to move the water thus saving energy.
  • Protects the homeowner against rising water bills.  Allows you control over how much, when and how you use the water.
  • Gives you a good feeling knowing you are getting the best water available while conserving a precious resource.
As one of the very few companies in Central Texas that has been approved to design and install water catchment systems, you can rest assured the job will be done correctly. BrightLeaf is proud to be a member of the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Asssociation.
