Rainwater Capture

Home  >  Uiw Leed Platinum Solar House  >  Senior Design  >  Rainwater Capture

The House of CARDS will install a small rainwater capture system at the soutwest corner of the house. While some systems are engineered to use the rainwater as graywater for the home, we will only use our system for irrigation of the north lawn area. We will use a 540 gallon tank, which will allow the capture of a one-inch downpour.
