Started a new company

hey all! just looking for some feedback here. my wife and i just started an irrigation company. i have been in the field a little over ten years and have recently seen a need in a conservation based irrigation company. i know, conservation and irrigation don't seem to go together, but we feel if your going to water do it responsibly. we are also offering water audits and rainwater collection systems. The website is mywaterwise.com. let me know what you guys think. thanx! kevin

Green is not all good, too many examples to list but water conservation is great.

Good luck.

Site looks good...

My wife and I want to install a rainwater collection system when we build a house (probably be 2-3 years). I will shoot you a PM to get some more information.

Good luck, sounds like a great adventure.



I should note, We've been using a system of sorts for awhile. When it rains, all the water is collected at the edge of the roof in these things we call gutters, from there, the water travels down what we call downspouts (just like the itsy-bitsy spider climbed up) and replenishs the lawn with as much water as it can handle. It's about an energy efficient as it can get, just shy of producing the water from the exhaust of my hydrogen powered lawnmower.

All the old houses in our neighborhood come equiped with cisterns in the back yards.

Back in the day the cisterns were used for all grey water from the house, and also the water from the gutters, when they improved the sewers many years ago they made people retrofit to put grey water into the sewer system.

And many people added an elbow to the bottom of their downspout and just shoot the water off down their driveways. Which is a shame.

But more recently alot of people have started using pumps to use all that water since the cisterns will fill rapidly and hold enough to keep their lawns watered during the summer, and no hose use restrictions to worry about.

Good luck with the new business guys, but don't smoke that stuff.
