Rainwater Harvesting The Aquascape RainXchange™ System is a revolutionary design that combines a recirculating decorative water feature with a sub-surface rainwater harvest storage system. Traditional methods of harvesting rainwater do not add beauty to your home or office setting.
Clearwater Ponds is proud to be one of the first Certified Rainxchange Professionals in Canada. It is a great product to be used if you are having drainage issues as well. You choose the size of the basin and what kind of water feature you would like to have to circulate the water. A quick calculation will help you to see how much water is running off your roof every time the sky opens up! (One inch of rainfall on a 2,000 square foot residential roof generates 1,250 gallons of water that can be reused).
TIP: when there is a ban on water and you have spent all this money on your landscape the city can’t stop you from watering with your own rain water!
Aesthetic Benefits: The RainXchange™ adds the beauty of a water feature to an efficient system for capturing, filtering, and reusing our most precious resource – water! Whether you choose a Pondless® Waterfall or bubbling urn to your landscape, you’ll be happy knowing your RainXchange™ System not only looks great, but is beneficial for the environment, too.
Environmental Conservation: Capturing rainwater to operate a decorative water feature creates true self-sustainability, drastically reducing the need for chemically-treated traditional water sources. Aesthetic Benefits Ease of Use While you enjoy the benefits of a decorative water feature, the RainXchange™ System filters the stored water to prevent stagnation and growth of unhealthy bacteria.
Ease Of Use: Accessing the stored underground water is easy as connecting a hose to a spigot. A small pump is connected to the stored water making it convenient for you to water the landscape.
