Rainwater collection is the process of collecting rainfall from a roof or structure to then store, filter, and re-use. This process involves capturing the water through a system of gutters and pipes which is then stored in a large cistern or storage tank. Once collected, the water is purified through a series of filters and ultra violet light to supply any place that needs water, such as a house, garden, irrigation system, or pool.
Rainwater collection can be used for a variety of purposes such as landscaping/irrigation, in home use, wildlife and livestock watering, fire protection, storm water management.
