Rainwater Collection System of 14805 Brown Bluff Circle

Did you know that a home’s landscape may use up to 60% of a homes water and most of that landscape is water hogging lawn grasses like St Augustine or Carpet Grass? Not so with this home at14805 Brown Bluff Circle! The landscape is native so there is very little water use or maintenance. If you like to grow veggies, fruit or flowers, there are garden beds set up with drip irrigation in most of them. With a huge rainwater collection system like this home has there are no water bills to pay. The huge underground ferrocement rainwater tank is in excess of 35,000 gallons! My friend who lives nearby and has a well, ran out of water in 2011 and had to have water delivered. Not so with this home’s water supply. There have been no water shortages since this home was built with either the original or now second owner. Rainwater is naturally soft so it is better for your skin, hair, garden, your plumbing and household appliances. Rainwater is free of chemicals like chlorine and flouride that most municipalities often add to the public water supply.
