Rainwater Collection Main Topic at IAPMO

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) invited Chad Lindsly of RainBank Rainwater Systems to speak at its chapter meeting in Seattle.

According to its website, “The ASSE International Chapter of IAPMO, LLC, is an ANSI-accredited standards developer and product certification body comprised of individual and sustaining members who represent all disciplines of the plumbing and mechanical industries. Its mission is to continually improve the performance, reliability and safety of plumbing and mechanical systems.”

The presentation and discussion led by Lindsly included benefits of rainwater collection, feasibility, mitigation of stormwater, urban planning, permitting process and ARCSA/ASPE/ANSI standard 63, and codes .

It was a good turnout of representatives from King County Health (KCH), Seattle Public Utilities (SPU), and the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE).

RainBank Rainwater Systems is an American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA)  lifetime member business with active Accredited Professional (AP) status. We at RainBank are dedicated to educating regulatory agencies about standards and best practices commonly used in the industry.

Seattle Home Saves Money on Water Bills

Four giant cisterns under the front porch collect and store up to 10,000 gallons of rainwater, used as the home’s primary water source. “Water gets purified by a series of filters and UV treatment and is used throughout the house,” says homeowner Andri Kofmehl. “When the tanks run low, the house can be supplied with utility water.” (Steve Ringman/The Seattle Times)

According to an article in The Seattle Times, a West Seattle family “live in Seattle’s second Built Green Emerald Star home, a supremely certified, super-sustainable showcase of so many features…”

The home, constructed by net-zero specialists TC Legend Homes, was built to the organization’s highest standard by TC Legend Homes and was featured on the 2018 Northwest Green Home Tour this past April.

With a design from RainBank Rainwater Systems, the home also features on-site cisterns that can hold 10,000 gallons of rainwater. According to Built Green program manager Leah Missik, “with a net-zero home plus a 70 percent reduction in water use, you can factor in you’re probably going to get money back from Seattle City Light for electricity, and you will save significantly on your water and sewage bills, and the upfront costs are mitigated.”

Homeowner Veena Prasad says “There’s a sense that going green sounds great, but people feel it’s too expensive or too much work. We need that extra push; sometimes that inspiration helps. When people see someone like us can do this — you don’t have to be a rich, retired executive; it’s something the middle class can aspire to. If we can do our bit to help inspire, we’re happy to do that.”

As we mentioned in our recent blog post titled Net-Zero Home Wins With RainBank Design, sustainable homes don’t necessarily have to cost more, plus can give you a higher return on your investment.
