Design a rainwater harvesting system for any home in any climate.
Water is a crucial resource increasingly under stress. Yet rainfall, even in arid climates, can make up a sizable portion of any home, acreage, or farm's water requirements if harvested and utilized with care. The key is appropriate planning and high-quality site- and climate-specific design.
Essential Rainwater Harvesting is a comprehensive manual for designing, building, and maintaining water harvesting systems for the warm and cold climates of the world. Presenting design considerations and approaches for the most common household rainwater supply scenarios – primary, supplemental, and off-grid supply – this step-by-step approach covers:
Considerations for full-property water security
Demand planning and conservation strategies
Supply calculations and design implications for extreme rainfall and drought
Materials selection and water quality
System and site assessment
Sizing and design of gutters, conveyance, tanks, and pumps
Pre-filtration, filtration, and disinfection options
System maintenance and upkeep
This practical resource provides DIYers, trades, and rainwater practitioners with the essential tools, methods, and technical know-how to design, build, and maintain rainwater harvesting systems anywhere.
