Peace of Mind… Rain or ShineTM?

Since 2004, Innovative Water Solutions LLC has been creating practical, beautiful water management solutions to suit your individual needs. We can move stormwater from problematic areas, store rainwater for later use, or reduce your outdoor water demand… and we can do all of those things at the same time. So no matter if we are in the midst of a drought or torrential rain storms, our solutions will provide you with peace of mind.

From the founders’ backgrounds as Peace Corps volunteers, IWS has a passion for the sustainable management of our water resources. We are an engineering design / build firm that is driven by these ideals through water conservation and stormwater management solutions for residential and commercial projects.

Customer Service.

Good customer service is about building relationships and solving your problem, but great customer service is about focusing on the small details.  You want someone to take care of all the necessary details for your project, to ensure its success. We do just that! We understand that great customer service isn’t an afterthought.  From your first call to our company to the commissioning and maintenance of your system, we will be there for you.


Character is defined as what you do when no one is looking.  This is the same with quality.  Due to the uniqueness of our services, many of the systems we install don’t have specific code requirements so we have had to create our own high standards for installation.  We do this because you deserve the highest quality materials and workmanship in your project but also because at the end of the day, we are defined by not just what we do but how we do it.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • I considered going the cheap way with commercial rain barrels, but I'm so glad I spent the money on a system from Innovative Water Solutions. After two good rains, the tank is full, the water hose attaches perfectly, there are no leaks, and -- best of all -- no mosquitoes! It's great to have professional-quality plumbing and construction instead of a DIY job.

    Melynda N. Austin, TX
  • I had a great experience with Innovative Water Solutions.  They all were very patient with our questions and ongoing maintenance issues. I have recommended them several times and am very glad I chose them for the job.

    Sheryl W. Austin, TX
  • I can't say enough good things about their crew:  they worked their butts off in the dead of winter, were knowledgeable, prompt and courteous.  And the finished drainage job was beautiful; I've gotten a lot of compliments from the neighbors on it.

    Lisa F. Austin, TX
  • IWS designed and installed a 10,000 gallon potable rainwater system for me.   I was completely impressed by the promptness, professionalism, and competent demeanor of the installation crew.  I strongly recommend you consider IWS if you want to install a system.

    Ken G. Llano, TX
  • Innovative Water Solutions was able to put our minds at ease with a drainage solution that addressed many challenges in our small backyard. I would recommend Chris and his crew to anyone who is constantly worried about the next big rain.

    Sarah H. Austin, TX
  • From the time we first met Chris, we were excited about his knowledge and enthusiasm for rainwater collection and erosion control. We knew right away that we had confidence in what he was telling us as he created the plan for our system. The whole team at IWS is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. We are very pleased with our system design and how well it is operating.

    Laura P. Dripping Springs, TX
  • The people at IWS came up with a totally effective and economical fix for what potentially could have turned into a drainage problem in the front of our home.  We are very happy with the way the project looks and how effectively it works.
