What if your pool became a 15,000 gallon water tank to get your landscape through the hot summer months? If your pool is ugly, you’re not a big swimmer and you’re tired of the maintenance, maybe this is the solution for you…. a nice drought-tolerant zoysia lawn and a beautiful sitting area, right on top of the reservoir.
From Swimming Pool to Rainwater Collection Tank
A12,000 gallon swimming pool, which would otherwise have been demolished, is converted to a rainwater tank that holds around 9,000 gallons of rainwater, cleaning and filtering new water as it is collected. A deck and grassy area were placed on top of the tank.
Landscape with a rainwater collection reservoir beneath
This acclaimed landscape is an example of what we can do over the top of an underwater rainwater collection reservoir. See the hole with the children in it, below? That is this yard under construction. Contact us to learn what we can do for you.
A simple rain harvesting system
We needed dirt in this landscape to create a berm to screen an ugly fence….so we had to dig a big hole anyway. A simple pond liner and some N12 drain pipes created a water storage area. Runoff coming down the hill and the downspouts from the house are collected underground, preventing flooding of neighboring properties and providing water for irrigation.
This home owner avoided demolition costs, created rainwater irrigation.
In this system, these milk-crate like boxes sit on a pond liner inside the old pool, creating void space to store water. They are strong enough to drive over, so you can put either lawn or driveway on top of this rainwater collection tank.
