Rainwater Harvesting Done Right with Integra Water

Experience counts when it comes to the safe and proper collection of natural water.

Rainwater Harvesting is an often-overlooked option as a natural home water system. This water collection system also goes by other names, such as rainwater collection to rainwater catchment. It’s also referred to as roof water collection or rooftop water collection.

At one time, it was thought to be a fringe method of collecting potable water, but times have changed. Today, rainwater harvesting (RWH) is a worldwide phenomenon. You can find it in residential, commercial, agricultural, and rural settings.

Harvested rain is the primary source of drinking water for thousands of residents of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands and is increasing in popularity due to its environmental and cost-saving benefits.
