Water Harvest Packaged Pump Systems

Designed for Rainwater Harvesting Applications

We specialize in custom water harvesting and capture solutions that reduce the unnecessary and wasteful consumption of potable water for irrigation and other non-potable applications.

Is a PPS Water Harvest Packaged Pump System Right for You?

Rainwater systems come in all shapes and sizes, from simple catchment systems under a downspout to large above and/or underground cisterns with complex filtration systems that can store thousands of gallons of water.

Does your system have a supplemental make-up water supply if your water tank is empty?

If yes, is the water pressure of your make-up water supply sufficient to operate your irrigation system?

Will there be particulates in your water supply that will need to be filtered out to avoid plugging small nozzles?

Most rainwater collection systems are comprised of the same basic components:

  • Catchment surface – rooftop or other raised solid surface. The best catchment systems have hard, smooth surfaces such as metal roofs or concrete areas. The amount of water harvested depends on the quantity of rainfall, the size of the surface, and the slope of the catchment area.
  • Gutters and downspouts – also known as distribution systems. They channel water from the catchment area to a holding container such as a barrel, cistern, or planted area.
  • Leaf screens – a screen that removes or catches debris.
  • Roof washers – a device that diverts the “first flush” of rain before it enters the storage tank. Most rainwater suppliers recommend that the “first flush” of water is diverted to an outside area of the storage system since the catchment surface may accumulate bird droppings, debris, and other pollution.
  • Storage tanks – In general, the storage tank is the most expensive component of a rainwater harvesting system. There are numerous types and styles of storage tanks available. Storage can be aboveground or underground. Storage containers can be made from galvanized steel, wood, concrete, clay, plastic, fiberglass, polyethylene, masonry, and more. Storage tank prices vary based on variables such as size, material, and complexity. To inhibit the growth of algae, storage tanks should be opaque and preferably placed away from direct sunlight. The tanks should also be placed close to the area of use and supply line to reduce the distance over which the water is delivered. Also, consider placing the storage on an elevated area to take advantage of gravity flow. The tank should always be placed on a stable and level area to prevent it from leaning and possibly collapsing.
  • Delivery systems – gravity-fed is the best system.  A water harvesting system can never be cross-connected with a potable water system. If a pump is used, it could contaminate the water in the water supplier’s main line in the street and then contaminate the water in the community.  This is why it is vital to never set up a system that could be cross-connected with domestic water.
