Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting
Rainwater harvesting is your own personal water supply. If municipal water is not available, issues arise with well water sources, or if you simply wish to utilize this abundant resource, rainwater harvesting is a strongly recommended solution.
Rainwater harvesting can make your home 100% self-sustainable if you want to be off the grid.
The challenges and cost of compliance with stormwater regulations can be significantly reduced by capturing rooftop rainwater.
Rainwater is the best natural water supply in the world. It's straight from nature's big distiller in the sky; naturally soft and tastes great. Use as primary water supply for indoor potable use and irrigation.
Rainwater is yours. You own it. It is an asset that falls on to your roof at no cost to you after initial investment. Low cost annual service is part of maintaining a successful system.
Reduced Site Plan Costs
Stormwater mitigation fees and pure expense items such as permeable pavers can be highly reduced.
No More Retention Ponds
Many projects have to allocate a large square footage of the property for a retention pond to meet stormwater regulations. With rainwater harvesting, you can use that extra space for whatever you can imagine!
Consider your impact on the collective freshwater supply in your community. Positive community environmental impact.
Rainwater is naturally soft. Thus, one with rainwater harvesting gets to experience the MANY benefits of soft water. From protecting plumbing and appliances, to clear surfaces and dishes, to healthy and soft skin and hair.
Purified water. All the time.
Integrated purified drinking water is one of our specialties, and once you have it you’ll never want to go back. Imagine pure drinking water conveniently flowing through faucets in your kitchen sink, bar, and bathroom and into existing water-using appliances like pot-fillers, espresso machines, and ice makers. PerfectWater™ can run a purified drinking water line to any location in your house.
No more bottled water
Bottled water is expensive, unhealthy, environmentally unsustainable, and inconvenient. BPA (bisphenol-A) leakage, overpricing, unnecessary waste products, ongoing hauling or delivery, and even misleading labeling about the standard of purification are some of the avoidable downsides to using bottled water. With PerfectWater™, you can say 'no' to bottled water and experience the joy of having pure drinking water integrated throughout your home.
Purified water is absent of chemicals and up to 95% of all dissolved solids, leaving great-tasting, crystal-clear water to be enjoyed on its own or as a key ingredient in the best tasting coffee, tea, or any homemade water-based beverage. Purified water leaves room for the flavors to fully manifest, untainted by contaminates.
PerfectWater™ will connect your purified drinking water to your fridge, self-standing ice machines and other water-using appliances. Enjoy refreshing clear and pure ice with any beverage, without the dilution of chlorine and other contaminants.
Yes, even the flavors and richness of cooking will change with purified water. Water is often absorbed into food through boiling or steaming, and if using chemical-filled water, it can diffuse the fullness of the flavors.
Peace of Mind
With Perfect Water™ you never have to worry about what chemicals and contaminants are in your water. Enjoy the peace-of-mind of knowing that your water-using appliances, clothes, dishes, skin, and hair are being maintained and protected by the water they come in contact with every single day.
Protection: Washing Appliances
Any water use appliance such as dishwashers or clothes washers are affected negatively by hard water. Soft water increases efficiency and life-span. (see Battelle Report)
Full Pressure in Showers
Hard water builds up in small ports like shower heads, which can create a loss in pressure of 75% in less than 18 months! One can expect no build up with soft water.
Crystal Clear Dishes
Hard water is incredibly corrosive to glass. Have you ever pulled a glass out of the dishwasher and it was almost foggy? Soft water cleans the dishes perfectly clear without etching into the glass.
Most clothing and dish detergent is designed to overcome the contaminants within hard water. Thus, when using soft water, one can expect use less than half as much detergent.
Protection: Pipes & Plumbing
Calcium and magnesium in hard water will build up in pipes and plumbing over the years. With soft water, you pipes and plumbing stay clean and smooth.
No More Static
(UPDATE) Soft water removes the electrical charge that is built up in your clothes when washed.
Bathrooms, showers, floors, and mirrors. Hard water builds up on glass and tile removing that NEW clear finish. It's all about the water.
Protection: Hot Water (Tank & Tankless)
Hot water tanks may be the appliance most affected by hard water. Softeners allow the water to flow through the system with no buildup. (See Batelle Report)
Moisturizes and Softens Skin
Hard water contains calcium and magnesium which builds up on everything... including your skin and pores. Soft water let's your skin breathe naturally and retain healthy oils.
Soft and Silky Hair
Hard water coats your hair with calcium and magnesium, this causes it to get dry and tangly. Your hair will never feel better than it does when using soft water.
DID YOU KNOW that the EPA has a lower regulation in chlorine concentration for swimming pools than it does for municipal potable water? By law, there can be more chlorine in the water you drink than the water that you swim in at a public pool.
We install instant-hot systems for drinking water faucets. Cool and hot water coming from the same faucet.
Long Lasting Hair Color
Municipal, chlorine-filled water fades hair color much quicker than fresh, chlorine water. Keep the hair color you want, longer.
Chemical-Free Skin and Hair
Skin absorbs, hair is affected, do not let chlorine be the common denominator. Get ready for much softer skin that doesn't dry out quickly.
No More Odor
Well water can unfortunately bring with it unpleasant odors. Rotten-egg odor or a earth-y smell are quite common. Whatever odor you might experience, we can completely take care of it.
Protection from Pathogenic Bacteria
Bacteria is one of the worse kinds of contaminants that well water can have. And even if a well has been tested for bacteria and came back negative, that doesn't mean bacteria will never be found in that well water, it only means THAT sample was bacteria-free. Peace of mind as your family drinks glass after glass.
No Volatile Gas
Gas if for cars. Not water. This is a legitimate issue that can arise in well water.
The PH scale is important to watch when dealing with well water. We get it right to that perfect number 7.
Water stains can ruin bathroom and kitchen fixtures so quickly. Keep your surfaces clean with clear water.
Tastes Like Water
Well water can bring along with it unnatural tastes. We can make it... taste like water.
No more sediment.
