California Filtration Specialists has partnered with Whitson CM to design,
plan, and install a 16,200 gal rainwater harvest system in San Diego, CA.
Due to drought conditions, use of domestic water for irrigation purposes is
being restricted. This homeowner, concerned for the health of his
numerous oak trees on this property, decided to install an AquaSave
system in-lieu of traditional underground tanks. The AquaSave system
was less expensive than a tank system; this combined WCM’s and CFS’s
expertise, the decision was easy.Our team partnered with MacDannald Pump Systems to design a pump system that would provide adequate pressure and volume for the irrigation system that had significant gains in elevation. This system also incorporated a CalSense irrigation controller and electronic float systems to ensure water was available at all times.
Originally, the property owner planned on installing a system that would contain approximately 15,000 gallons but because of the flexibility and modular properties of the R-Tank storage cells, increasing the tank size was simple and affordable. The owner is so happy with the system and its affordability, they are planning on installing another similar sized tank in the near future.
