Flexible pillow tank stored under deckObjective: Outdoor Irrigation and Storm Water Control

Annual Rainwater Harvesting Potential: 54,648 gallons

This homeowner is utilizing horizontal wasted space under a deck by storing rainwater in a custom size Original Rainwater Pillow.

 

The custom size 2,300 gallon pillow with dimensions of 19 feet x 7.5 feet x 2.5 feet was built to fit the space.

The rainwater is collected from all the below grade downspout drains through an in ground sump pump filter.

Rainwater pillow bladder tank stored under a deckA 22 gallon per minute demand pump supplies rainwater to the two outdoor water spigots.

The homeowner is an avid gardener in a green community who's objective for harvesting rainwater is to have her own water supply and reduce storm water runoff to the community lake in front of her house.

The concern for the lake stems from the fact that last year the lake had to be drained and dredged to remove the silt from years of storm water pollution.

Harvesting rainwater is the solution to both problems.
