Seeking to make an “age-old practice compellingly contemporary,” as their website states, BRAE offers complete rainwater harvesting systems designed to conserve water, save natural resources, and help meet sustainability objectives for homes, businesses, and schools. “Rainwater harvesting has been employed as long as people have been settled in communities. Around the world, rain is collected to supplement the water needs of households, landscapes, livestock, and agriculture. Harvesting in this way is about integrating rainwater as a strategy to conserve water and save energy. The idea isn’t novel but [BRAE’s] approach – creating complete pre-engineered solutions as opposed to complex checklists of assembled parts – is what sets [BRAE] apart.” Offering storage capacities of 200 gallons to more than 2 millions gallons, BRAE’s Rainwater Harvesting Systems can reportedly reduce water consumption by up to 65% thereby saving you money. “Irrigating landscapes, commercial process water, flushing toilets, laundry systems, fire suppression systems, agricultural process water, washing vehicles, custodial services, and chiller make-up supply” are all potential uses for harvested rainwater as BRAE lists on their website. BRAE identifies four basic functions common to most systems to keep in mind as factors to consider when designing rainwater systems, and they are filtration, storage, distribution, and treatment.
