Ron Van Dam: Harvesting Rain

Ron was tired of his lawn turning brown over the long hot summer. He solved his problem by harvesting rainwater in his 1700 gallon (6500 L) underground cistern. Rain travels through his downspouts into the cistern which pumps water into a irrigation system with the help of well pumps leesburg va. Not only does this afford him the freedom to water his lawn without worrying about municipal repstrictions, he also saves money. His water bill has lowered significantly since the system came online.

Ron has not needed to replace a single component of his system in seven years, and the savings combined with the maximum 45% stormwater credit he receives means that his system is paying for itself.
