What could you have done with last weekend’s Seattle area rainfall of around 2.5″?
If your house has 2,000 sq. ft. of roof, you could have collected about 3,000 gallons of water. That could flush toilets for a four person household for 100 days or do over 100 loads of laundry. You could supply both demands in this household for a entire year with as little as 4,000 gallons of storage with our average annual rainfall. The average demand for both of these fixtures is 48% of your household usage. That’s 48% of your water not needed to be distributed through a centralized water system. That’s 48% of you water bill, which is expected to increase consistent with demands, repairs of infrastructure, and availability.
Rainwater collection can be part of your requirements of the new 2016 stormwater code. Our modal above mitigates over 65% of its roof runoff. With larger storage and other use, as much as 100% mitigation can be met. On site infiltration or rain gardens can also augment the drainage plan along with rainwater collection.
