April, 2014: Downspout collection of water for residential irrigation use. Designed and material provided by Rainwater Harvesting Supply Company, LLC. Installed by Rainwater Harvesting Supply Company, LLC and Colonel Landscape Services, Inc.
Specifications: (1) 150 gallon Poly-Mart rain barrel in dark brown; Leaf Separator; 2” knife valve. The storage tank rests on a landscape block base. The leaf separator diverts large debris from the roof and is necessary due to pine trees near the home and no gutter protection. The knife valve simplifies winterization. The overflow has been piped into the existing in-ground drainage system.
