Why The Need For A Aquascape Rainwater Harvest System?
Water is quickly becoming an “endangered species” on our blue planet and many residents in Rochester, Monroe County NY are looking for rainwater harvesting or rainwater collection systems and Acorn Ponds & Waterfalls can help with your Aquascape RainXchange system installations! Urban growth increases stormwater drainage runoff, which in turn harms our natural waterways. All life requires water for survival. Learning about the benefits of installing rainwater harvesting, drainage control and the benefits of rainwater itself, and of course..becoming aware of the current state of our environmental condition is the first step in identifying viable solutions to ensure clean and healthy water for future generations.
Demand in Rochester, Monroe County NY is becoming greater than the supply and the rains that do fall on our ground are lost.
Rainwater is actually flowing away from the area it falls on due to development.
Water cannot soak into asphalt, concrete or shingles. It flows very quickly off of these surfaces and in the process it carries a variety of pollutants from dust and dirt to oils, fertilizers and pesticides.
The mixture flows quickly into Monroe County NY storm sewers and in some cases, ponds and streams.
Highly developed areas can have 50% or more surface area covered by impervious surfaces forcing water away from the area where it’s needed.
Increased water velocity strips the aquatic vegetation from the shores exposing the soil to subsequent erosion and habitat loss.
According to the EPA, urban runoff is the number one cause of pollution in coastal environments.
Almost 50% of our stream miles, 45% of lake acres and 35% of estuary and bay square miles surveyed by the EPA are considered below the standards for fishing and swimming.
As rainwater run-off in is carried away it does not have the opportunity to soak into the soil or groundwater reserves so our aquifers continue to lose water and new water is not coming in.
Wells throughout the country are going dry or have to be lowered to access the lower water levels.
Traditional rainwater storage tanks leave little to be desired

The Benefits Behind Rainwater Collection Systems
Click to learn about Fountains
The RainXchange™ adds the beauty of a water feature to an efficient system for capturing, filtering, and reusing our most precious resource – water! Whether you choose a Pondless® Waterfall or bubbling urn to your landscape, you’ll be happy knowing your RainXchange™ System not only looks great, but is beneficial for the environment, too.
Click to learn about Wildlife.
Because the water stored in the RainXchange™ System is constantly moving and being aerated, it becomes a sanctuary for wildlife. Birds, frogs, dragonflies and butterflies all flock to water in the landscape. In fact, water is a key component in certified wildlife habitats.
Capturing rainwater to operate a decorative water feature creates true self-sustainability, drastically reducing the need for chemically-treated traditional water sources.
Ease of Use
While you enjoy the benefits of a decorative water feature, the RainXchange™ System filters the stored water to prevent stagnation and growth of unhealthy bacteria. Accessing the stored underground water is easy as connecting a hose to a spigot. A small pump is connected to the stored water making it convenient for you to water the landscape.
What Is The Aquascape Rainwater Harvest System?
The concept is simple - utilize a modular system that will Capture, Store and Reuse water. Traditional rainwater harvesting is designed using plastic barrels (55 gallon drums) or large above ground and below ground cisterns where water is stored. Aquascape has taken this traditional rainwater harvesting concept and combined it with the Aquascape Ecosystem. The re-circulating ecosystem eliminates the concerns of stagnant water associated with traditional rainwater harvesting options. This approach provides the owner with the enjoyment of a beautiful water feature and helps them to better understand and respect water in the environment.
