Lantzville case study
Our clients in Lantzville wanted to collect rainwater for landscape irrigation use, with the long term goal of using their collected rain water for toilet flushing. This area in Lantzville is known for its poor producing wells, rainwater harvesting is a great way to augment their current water system. A pergola was also constructed to support the conveyance pipe as it runs from below the gutter to the tanks.
