Our Products

The Rainwater Connection offers a wide range of products for use in RWH systems.

A variety of rainwater harvesting products are available from the United States, Germany and Australia. We have tested them under local conditions, and offer a wide selection of those that work in coastal British Columbia’s site conditions.

We have also developed some “made in BC” products to clean the water before it gets to the cistern. They are designed to better deal with the fir needles and the rain patterns in the local environment. The Rainwater Connection also makes high quality, lined, corrugated steel cisterns providing secure storage of between 12,000 and 20,000 gallons.
