Rainwater Harvesting is the capture, diversion, and storage of rainwater for plant irrigation and other uses. Rainwater Harvesting for landscape use can reduce your consumption of municipal water (drinking water) by reusing the rain water that falls onto your property. This process is typically accomplished with rain barrels, cisterns, or water storage tanks. In general, the size of the water storage tank should be big enough to meet your daily water requirement throughout the dry season. In addition, the size of the catchment area or roof should be large enough to fill the tank.

rainwater storage tanks texasAt Knockout Plumbing, our licensed and insured professionals will evaluate your specific needs and can compute your property’s net rainwater catchment potential based on the area of your roof in correlation to the average amount of inches of rain that falls on your property. Using these precise calculations, our team can recommend the correctly sized tank(s) to be used on your property and can install a complete system that makes sure that the rainwater is properly diverted and then filtered so that you can use collected rain to water your lawn, plants, wash the car or most any other non-consumptive function that works for you. Simple. Smart. Green. And, Economical.

San Angelo, Texas averages about 20 inches of rainfall, annually. This translates to a potential capture of approximately 12,460 gallons of rainwater per year, per 1000 square feet of roof, when using a typical Rainwater Harvesting System custom designed and installed by KNOCKOUT PLUMBING of San Angelo, Texas.

In its most simple terms, Rainwater Harvesting involves collecting the run-off from a roof in order to store it for later use. The rain runs off into gutters that channel the rainwater to downspouts and then into some sort of storage vessel. Rainwater collection systems can be as simple as collecting rain in a rain barrel, or as elaborate as harvesting rainwater into large cisterns to supply your entire household demand. We believe that rainwater harvesting is a viable technology in an urban setting, and an idea whose time has been reborn for cities with water restrictions – such as in San Angelo and across the more arid locations in West Texas.
