In this video Rob showcases one of the major water harvesting feature – an underground rainwater cistern – on Rob and Michelle’s urban home property.
This rain tank is unique because it is integrated into our hardscape (patio) so it’s completely invisible to the untrained eye. In this video I talk about how it was built, how it fills, how it’s integrated into our rain garden and passive solar greenhouse, and details on the sump pump, drains, overflows, and swales.
