(NAHB) as one of the Green Approved products making it eligible to contribute points toward certification of a building under National Green Standards. The Original Rainwater pillow qualifies for 6 - 8 points under the scoring system. The horizontal storage system design utilizes otherwise wasted space under your home in the crawlspace or under your deck or porch.

About the Original Rainwater Pillow™ Design
The Original Rainwater Pillow™ was designed and developed in response to the drought in Georgia and the havoc that a lack of available water could wreak on gardens. While others proposed solutions to the water shortage (shorter showers) it was the owner of one of the Atlanta Area’s top landscaping companies who decided to address the problem and provide a solution to rain water harvesting that could be used nationally and abroad.
The standard 10' x 8' model has a 2' fill height, fits in most crawlspaces and under deck areas and can hold 1,000 gallons of water at a time. Custom sizes that can hold up to 40,000 gallons of water are available and made to order to fit your specific need and available space.
About the Original Rainwater Pillow™ Materials
Each Original Rainwater Pillow™ is produced from 100% Reinforced Polymer alloy (polyester scrim coated on both sides with PVC polymer) with radio frequency welded seams where electromagnetic energy is used to heat and bond materials together under pressure, ensuring strong, leak-proof seams.. This heavy duty, industrial strength fabric is commonly used by the military and fire departments due to its exceptional endurance and abrasion resistance.
