Deep in the eastern base of the Whetstone Mountains – Southern Arizona, sit the most protected water-filled caves in America. Keeping them natural is no easy task. A solution to conserving thousands of gallons of cave water has been discovered.
The rain harvesting concept is growing because of the increasing concern for water in drier climates. Because this industry is still new, there are a lot of theories published to convince people to harvest more rain water. In fact, there are still a lot of government grants available to help encourage residents to collect water when it rains. After conducting a lot of research, I have located four fact-based reasons why rain harvesting is important.
Rainwater harvesting systems are a great idea, and relatively simple to set up. But debris and contamination can be a problem. In this article, we discuss why it is important to keep leaves and bugs out of your tank. When leaves collect in your water after falling off the tree, they will decompose and therefore pose as a threat to the quality of your water (not to mention fueling algae growth). Bugs like mosquitoes carry diseases and they also breed in stagnant water.
With the lack of water supply and the cost of water these days, many are asking themselves, "Would it be worth it for me to catch and use the rain water falling on my roof"? If that's you, you've come to the right place. However, first we must understand the correct way to get set up your rainwater harvesting system to get the most out of it and to avoid mistakes that could waste your time and money.
