Rain Catchment Update

Watch the first trial for our new rain catchment system!

We installed a new rain catchment system on our shop. This structure was originally conceived just for getting more water into our cisterns. But we stalled on the rain collection aspect, because our cisterns have been so full it wasn’t a priority since the legendary September rains, that we seem to be talking a lot about these days.

Finally we used enough water from our tanks to make space for collecting more. Ideally we will install another cistern near the shop. But funds are tight right now, so we are making the most of our current infrastructure. The water drains from the shop gutters onto the roof of the main house. Our design distributes the water over a large area of the roof so that it may gently drain. We don’t want to pour it all on in one spot and have our precious clean rainwater overshoot the gutters. From there it goes into the existing gutters and down into the main cistern.
