The Aquascape Rainwater Harvesting System (RainXchange) is a sustainable solution for water conservation and storm water management.
Capturing and reusing rainwater reduces the community's demand on the municipal water supply, reduces the owner's water bills, and helps avoid strict water schedules and bans. Rainwater harvesting can also be a solution for managing storm water run-off and decreasing flooding.
