Our integrated rainwater collection system collects runoff from the roof of the structure, reducing the need for an external water source. Gutters at hip board height collect runoff and direct it to a storage tank, which directly feeds the tunnel's irrigation system. Water catchment systems show significant benefits, both economically and environmentally. Greg Garbos, President of Four Season Tools, has installed a water catchment system to his 26'W x 30'L high tunnel and attached workshop in Kansas City, MO and found the collection potential to be remarkable:
- 1" of rain on 1500 sq. ft. = 935 gallons of water
- Average Kansas City rainfall = 36"/year
- Annual Average Collection Potential = 33,642 gallons
Four Season Tools proudly distributes food grade storage and rainwater collection tanks from Synder Industries.
