The owners of the Lake Austin remodel hired Tank Town, based in nearby Dripping Springs, Texas, to create their own rainwater-collection system. Led by founder Richard Heinichen, the company has installed hundreds of systems locally and even produces its own bottled water. On this particular project it assembled a roof wash tank and a sand filter to give collected water two major cleanings before being pumped into the storage tanks. The water then passes through a 2-mocron filter and under a ultraviolet light for further purification. To simplify maintenance, Tank Town kept the filters aboveground, concealed in outbuildings and behind landscape walls. The entire system lets the clients enjoy pure, clean water while conserving a natural resources–and avoiding a city water bill.
