RainXchange Rainwater Harvesting And The Direct Benefits
Serving Paradise, Fort Worth, Arlington, Decatur, Wise County, Texas (TX)
Water is quickly becoming an “endangered species” on our blue planet. Urban growth around Paradise, Fort Worth, Arlington, Decatur, Wise County, Texas areas, increases stormwater runoff, which in turn harms our natural waterways. All life requires water for survival. Learning about the benefits of rainwater harvesting, and the benefits of rainwater itself, and of course… becoming aware of the current state of our environmental condition is the first step in identifying viable solutions to ensure clean and healthy water for future generations.
The RainXchange™ adds the beauty of a water feature to an efficient system for capturing, filtering, and reusing our most precious resource – water! Whether you choose to add a Pondless® Waterfall or bubbling urn to your landscape, you’ll be happy knowing your RainXchange™ System not only looks great, but is beneficial for the environment, too.
Because the water stored in the RainXchange™ System is constantly moving and being aerated, it becomes a sanctuary for wildlife. Birds, frogs, dragonflies and butterflies all flock to water in the landscape. In fact, water is a key component in certified wildlife habitats.
Capturing rainwater to operate a decorative water feature creates true self-sustainability, drastically reducing the need for chemically-treated traditional water sources. The Aquascape Foundation relies on the RainXchange system to be the backbone of their missions to provide children with clean drinking water.
Ease of Use
While you enjoy the benefits of a decorative water feature, the RainXchange™ System filters the stored water to prevent stagnation and growth of unhealthy bacteria. Accessing the stored underground water is easy as connecting a hose to a spigot. A small pump is connected to the stored water making it convenient for you to water the landscape.
