In a world where every drop of water holds significance, it is becoming more important than ever to harvest rain water. While we may have plenty of clean water here in the U.S., there are many areas in the world where people don’t get a single drop of clean water, or even have enough water at all. As a result, many people have discovered the importance of conservation and have elected to do what they can to help our environment. One way to contribute to conservation is through the collection of rain water for gardening, watering, and other needs.
If you are looking for a roofing product that will help with rain water collection, then you're in luck.
The key principle for rainwater harvesting is to secure runoff water from the rooftops in a way that the roofing substance does not leach pollution or undesirable chemicals into the water.
One of the easiest ways to save clean, fresh water is by collecting it as it falls from the sky. Polymer roof tiles engineered by DaVinci are a great way to funnel the water that falls onto the roof into a rain barrel as they have been LEED certified (WE 1.1-1.2 ) for use in potable water systems.
