Rainwater Tank Installation Workshop

  • Private Residence La Mesa La Mesa, CA 91942 United States (map)

Let's catch rainwater!  Even in an inch, 600 gallons are rushing off a 1000 square foot roof. Finish off this winter right, and get yourself some significant storage to account for the dry times. 

Between rebates from City of San Diego for gutters and rebates from Metropolitan Water District, it's easier than ever to justify large water storage.  

In this hands-on workshop participants will learn the fundamentals of active rainwater harvesting systems.  By the end of the workshop we will have installed a 1100 gallon rainwater harvesting tank.  

Topics to include:

  • Wet and dry systems

  • Calculating potential rainwater collection

  • Different types of tanks and cisterns

  • Prefiltering rainwater

  • Best management practices

  • Getting the most out of a gravity fed system

This workshop will be held at private residence in La Mesa  

We will have coffee/tea and snacks for participants! BYO Lunch.

Cost: $50/day or $75 for both days, reserve your spot here. One work trade position. Please inquire with
