Oregon-based Rain Technologies is all about rain water collection, control and storage. Their products are made from recycled polyethylene plastic and are Cradle 2 Cradle certified. 

RainTube fits inside of a standard roof gutter and acts to redirect water while it keeps debris out. The water flows at a rate of up to 100 inches per hour. The redirected water can be harvested using a catchment system which is where RainSpace comes in.

RainSpace is a system of structurally engineered tubes that facilitate underground water storage. Installing a rain space the size of a standard double-car parking space will allow for the storage of 10,000 gallons of water. This is an especially practical solution for urban and suburban homeowners who would like to have water for landscape use during ‘no watering allowed’ days.
