Rainwater Installation on Rocky, Sloped Terrain

This was one of the more interesting projects for Lakota Water Company.  We contracted to design and install a whole-house use rainwater collection system for a Wimberley, TX home that had a 4,500 sq.ft. roof area.   Rock croppings, trees, and sloping terrain made for a challenging design that required a lot of creativity and experience.  The back of the house had an 1,100-square foot wooden deck running the length of the home.   We envisioned eliminating the home’s deck flooring and installing a 36,000-gallon poured-in-place concrete tank in its place.   The top of the tank became the stained concrete floor of  the home’s new back deck and all collection piping from the home’s gutters fed into this reservoir.  After completion of the rainwater system, the happy homeowner decided to finish out the exterior concrete tank walls with a masonry stone facade matching the existing home.
