3,000 gallon system installed in Carmel.
Garden Solutions Landscaping installed three above ground tanks at a home in Carmel. The homeowner like many of our customers is concerned about the future of water availability and cost. The system installed is the first phase of a larger vision the homeowner has to collect non-potable water for landscape irrigation. This is a great example of how to take an underused area on a side hill, fence it in, and put in water storage tanks that are not visible to the homeowner or neighbors. The system is supported by a roof catchment area of approximately 1,000 square feet with 3 downspouts. The downspouts are connected to 4" corrugated pipe that runs underground and down hill over 100 feet to the tank area. GSL adapted the 4" corrugated pipe to 3" Schedule 40 PVC and ran it into the tank system. Leaf Solution gutter screens were added to screen out any debris from roof runoff in the future. It is expected the catchment area will yield over 10,000 gallons per year. This RWH system also includes a fully automatic submersible pump that will provide plenty of pressure for any irrigation requirements.
