SUSTAINABLE DESIGN SOLUTIONS

Architects, Builders, Developers, Land Planners, the RainXchange™ System is an ideal solution for your next green building project. Most residential and commercial developments require some degree of an effective stormwater management strategy. This creates an amazing opportunity to not only store excess water, but to cherish its presence by understanding it and turning it into an asset of the design, as opposed to an afterthought. The water feature then becomes a destination point for a family or an outdoor classroom for children.

 

Project Design Goal:
Capture and reuse the rainwater that falls on a 2,500 sq.ft. patio for irrigation.

Project Design Solution: A 3,000 gallon RainXchange™ System was used in combination with a permeable paver patio. A fountain stone was incorporated into the design for filtration while adding a decorative element to the landscape design. A ½ HP booster pump provides water from the storage chamber to the sites irrigation system.
