The Aquascape Rainwater Harvesting System adds the beauty of a water feature to a rainwater collection system for capturing, filtering, and reusing our most precious resource - water!
Whether you choose a Pondless® Waterfall or bubbling urn to add to your landscape, you'll be happy knowing your rainwater harvesting system not only looks great but is beneficial for the environment too.

First, the rainwater hits the roof, collects, and rushes down the downspout
Next, rainwater is funneled into a basin, filling it up and collecting underneath the water feature, ready for use
The final step is to use the harvested water. This can occur in one of three ways:
- Use it in a water feature, which recycles back into the basin
- Use the water through a hose or sprinkler system
- Excess water will flow into the overflow release and disperse evenly into your soil.
