Depending on tank
sizing, a 20x50ft greenhouse could generate
7,000-11,000 gallons of collected rain water during the growing season.
Rainwater collected off of greenhouses can be stored, filtered, and
to provide automated drip irrigation. The tanks can be
set-up to work with
an existing water source to partially fill tanks in
between rain events
completely automating the entire system.
If your greenhouse does not have gutters Rain Fed Gardens can change
can even be installed on all types of greenhouses. The gutters are able
come apart and be removed so you don't have to worry about
them being knocked off during the winter.
Solar panels can be used to power DC pumps, enabling automated drip
systems even when there is no readily available power or water.
