Texas Rainwater Harvesting - Catch Texas Rain: Free Consultation / Estimate for a Rainwater Collection System in San Antonio, the Hill Country, Texas and Surrounding States
We offer free estimates to builders and homeowners who are considering purchasing a turnkey rainwater harvesting system of 5,000 gallons or more. If you are thinking about putting in a system of 2,500 gallons or less, doing it yourself will be much more cost-effective than having a professional rainwater harvesting installer do it for you. Texas Rainfall Catchment offers design services and consultations for systems less than 5,000 gallons. Design services start at $150.

An acccredited rainwater systems professional* will visit your property to discuss your water use needs and review potential catchment areas and tank locations. Texas Rainfall Catchment will then provide you with a free estimate for a turnkey rainwater harvesting system on your site. We also offer a more indepth analysis for $50. The analysis includes the following:

  1. High-level analysis of potential rainwater capture on your site
    • Water budget
    • Projected monthly water demand
  2. Discussion about the type of system desired:
    • Potable - for use inside the house
    • Non-potable - for landscaping use
    • Combination potable and non-potable

Accreditation process
From ARCSA website (www.arcsa.org):
In the past few years, rainwater catchment has become a popular and sometimes necessary way to augment water supplies. Due to this, ARCSA believes the general public and other trades need a mechanism to evaluate consultants', installers', or vendors' expertise; that is, a way to set a minimum standard of knowledge in the consultant they choose to design their system. To this end, ARCSA is now providing a training process to members to set a minimum level of demonstrated knowledge of rainwater catchment systems. ARCSA has decided to call this process, which is based on the US Green Building Council's process, a Rainwater Catchment Systems Accredited Professional. The purpose of accreditation is to recognize individuals who have demonstrated a competency of general knowledge and experience to provide advice and/or assistance in the use of rainwater capture.
